Sesion by Senju-HiMe

(below in English)

Más de una vez algún principiante en la fotografía me pide consejo de cómo fotografiar como un "profesional" sin tener tan siquiera un buen equipo, o estudio. Muchos se desaniman por ese motivo, y es una lástima. Siempre he creído que se puede hacer maravillas con cualquier cosa que se tenga a mano. Cuando empecé, utilizaba una pequeña lámpara donde me iluminaba y me autorretrataba con la compacta chiquitita de mi padre. Después, tras ahorrar un año y pico, me pude comprar mi primera réflex. No tenía luz artificial, tan sólo utilizaba la luz natural que entraba por mi ventana. Aprendí Photoshop por mi cuenta, a pasos muy lentos, pero todos muy satisfactorios.

Hoy en día utilizo flash (y luz natural a veces), ¡pero no tengo estudio profesional! Uso el cuarto de mi hermano (que ya no está en casa) y me apaño como puedo. Como podéis ver en la foto, mucho espacio no tengo, pero he aprendido a lidiar con cosas así, y estas dificultades hoy en día me ayudan muchísimo a la hora de afrontar todo tipo de problemas.

Se trata de aprovechar todos los recursos, probando, experimentando con cualquier cosa. Si no sale bien, ¿qué mas da? ¡Inténtalo otra vez con algo distinto! Una lección más. Desde aquí os animo a todos a ver el mundo de otra forma; un mundo lleno de oportunidades, maravillas y sueños por cumplir. Que nada (y menos un equipo amateur) ni nadie os frene. Cada uno de nosotros estamos llenos de creatividad, sólo hay que dejarla florecer.

I am asked very frequently by amateur photographers how to shoot like a "professional" withou having a good camera equipment, or photo studio. Many give up, and it's a pity. I've always thought you can do wonders with anything you have on hand. When I started, I had a small light that I would use to lighten my face and shot with my dad's small compact camera. After saving money for almost two years, I was able to buy my first reflex. I didn't have artificial lighting, I just used natural light that came from my window. I learned to use Photoshop by myself, very slowly, but every step was tremendously satisfactory.

Nowadays I use flashes (and natural light sometimes), but I don't have a professional photo studio! I use my brother's room (he no longer lives with us) and I do what I can. As you can see in this picture, I don't have a lot of space but I have learned to deal with stuff like this, and nowadays this kind of difficulties help me a lot to cope with other problems.

It's about taking advantage of every resource, trying, experimenting with anything. If it doesn't work out, who cares? A new lesson learned. Try again with something different! From here I encourage you to see the world in a new, different way; a world filled with opportunities, wonders and dreams to make true. Don't let anything (even less an amateur equipment) nor anyone stop you. Everyone of us are full of creativity, you just have to let it flourish.

Hello Cristina! I was looking through your photos and they are absolutely breathtaking. I'm a student in high schooll and am trying to improve my colored pencil skills, so I was wondering if I could recreated some of your photos but as drawings. I would of course credit you and everyting, I just wanted to get your permission though. -Oliver

Wow, hoy mismo descubrí que todas esas fotos que me encantaron y que vi navegando por internet eran parte de tu obra. Es increíble que tan joven hayas sido capaz de hacer todo eso, cada fotografía cautiva y te deja sin aliento. Realmente eres mi fotógrafa preferida, y mira que hay muchos. Te admiro muchísimo :clap:
A la próxima exposición que haya en España, ¡voy!

Amazing! And so young! You're the proof that there are true tallents in photography, as opposed to just those who buy an expensive camera. You're unbelievably good!
