When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls. -Ted Grant

“Basically I  can say that the photography club helps us to understand that photography is an art, and [it] is not a simple art, but a complex and beautiful art. In this program we learn how to use a camera how to print the photos we take.

The way our instructors teach helps us to learn and understand that if you make a mistake, you’ll learn how to improve and you won’t make the mistake again.” – Maria Ximena
