Capturing Change

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 25, 2015, 4:54 AM

Hello, everyone! :wave:
In this journal I want to tell you something about my experiences with the "Capturing Change" project.
Capturing ChangeFour Deviants get game changing cameras from Sony for a collaborative assignment: Show us how your cities have changed from the past, for the present and into the future!

Miguel Santos
:iconmiguel-santos: Miguel-Santos
São Joaquim, Brazil
The most experience photographer of the group, Miguel has been a photographer for over 15 years, starting with a film camera and then moving to digital five years later. With the goal of featuring the past, present, and future of Brazil in this project, he traveled to smaller and lesser-known cities to capture the beauty and the chaos withi

About one month ago 4thofficial contacted me and asked whether I'd like to enter a photography project. Of course I entered! :giggle:
The theme was easy to understand. "Capturing Change - How has your city changed over the years?"
We had several Skype talks in which I learned to know the other participants:
darkdex52, Miguel-Santos, and MARX77.

I thought it would be difficult for me to change my eye of photography to the genre called "street", but it worked quite easily. We got a camera from Sony to use, and I got the Sony A7R with a 28-70mm lens. Shooting in full frame is really different from shooting with an APS-C camera. But it is definitely more fun! 

The project was the biggest photography project I ever did. It was such an honor to work together with both deviantART and Sony. And I am so thankful to be a part of this. I want to thank all the organizers for doing this.
madizzlee, thank you for doing the great journal!
akaminsky, thank you for helping us doing the Skype call with Sony!
ellenherbert, thank you for struggling with me to get the camera (and thanks to Google translate! :giggle: )
and finally
4thofficial, thank you, Ian, for letting me be a part of this wonderful project.

Of course I also want to show you some pictures of the project, including mine.
