My name's Felipe Rodriguez from Vista California and I like that photography allows one to express themselves however they want in the form of a photo. A photographer that I admire is Manuel Alvarez Bravo because he's a pioneer of Latin/American photography in the 20th century. My strengths in photography are taking portrait shots and shallow depth of field pictures. This year I've learned a lot of the principles of art and the basics of taking good photographs using different technique's and methods. I've also learned how to use photography to convey a message to people and express a feeling through pictures. Something interesting about me is that although I don't actually play it I'm not too bad at playing soccer.
