We have a digital camera in our center which used mostly for documentation our work . Frankly , I was photographing without using the right technical way , I was using flash all
the time .But all that have been changed when I received an invitation by Quaker Palestine youth program to
participate in a workshop in basic photography On 18 of May .
I took my camera and went to the workshop in which I met Skip Schiel _ An American photographer who taught us about camera principles . I have still remembered his words about steps to making a photo—notice, think, try, and try again .. He wrote on the board three main principles that we have to follow while taking a photo —follow the light, choose the position and time, design the photo … After that all of we moved to take photos and I took many photos and also he shown us photos taking by him in several positions ……. After this workshop I can call myself as I have an experience in photography, but not a photographer yet . Now when there is any activity in our center , they prefer me to take photos .
Skip … I have to thank u about that and also to certificate that u are one of people who supports Palestinians in their struggle ,because Palestinians not only have to fight Israeli occupation
, they also have to take good photos to show the world our suffering and also our skills and abilities …
Skip …. You don't give us camera's , you do better than that as this proverb " you can serve the people by giving them fish, but we perform a greater service when we teach them how to fish .
Skip …. We are very pride of American like you and please tell u people that we love American like you who believes in justice , human rights, dignity and equally between all kinds of people .
