Another day, another sunrise. The Giving Lens Nicaragua team started day three of our workshop by doing what this team has come to love: waking up early. Every photographer knows the best light is at sunrise and sunset, and we have continued to introduce the photography students at Empowerment International to this concept. And the best part? They love it! This is now the third photography workshop that The Giving Lens has done here in the quaint and beautiful town of Granada, and we are constantly amazed at the improvements the students continue to make. They are now shooting in manual mode, and understanding the connection between shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. But what we have really noticed is they have continued to train their eyes. The compositions and subject matter has grown leaps and bounds. They also understand that these photography skills can be used in jobs other than that of a professional photographer. Juan Jose, a 17 year old long time student at EI, can't wait to use his photography skills in his future career as a chef. It looks like we need to add a food photography course before the week is over. Here is the TGL Nicaragua team, lead by Jay and Varina Patel, and their Empowerment International students posing for a group photo after a sunrise shoot at Laguna De Apoyo .
