Letter to the Judges
I am Maria Herrera-Lopez. I am so passionate about photography. I loved doing that as my senior project. I have always been interested in photography but I have never actually tried to do anything because the equipment is expensive. Until now, this senior project has actually helped me see what I wanted to do with my career and future.
My research paper was about the past, present and future impacts of photography. I learned that photography was not just about people posing for the camera in order to be pretty but it is also about social problems and how it can change the way certain people view other people that are not like them.
My senior project product is a calendar that I am going to create and then sell and raise money for a charity in Mexico called Misión México. My calendar shows original pictures I have taken of Mexico’s wonderful nature because who does not like looking at nature? The biggest obstacle I have faced is going to Mexico and meeting up with my project facilitator. Then we had to find a common time go to Mexico and that was December break. My product relates to my research paper because I am using pictures to influence people to buy my calendar for a good cause.
My topic and research is going to help me in my future career because I want to create my own business, and doing my senior project on photography, will help me understand all the struggles photographers go through. Now that I understand that, I will know what to do and what not to do. The things that I learned about myself is that I really needed to be more sympathetic of the workers because every single job has its ups and downs.
The senior project has helped me learn more about myself, and I did not really enjoy all the steps that were involved in doing this project, and I certainly do not appreciate it being thirty five percent of our grade. Other than that, it was okay. Thank you for your time, and I hope you like my project.
