Digital cameras caused a revolution in people's life.  I think the invention of digital cameras gave an oportunity to many people to take photos in their common lives and also as a tool to work. So, can we think a society without cameras? In the past time, only few people could have a camara, but now, technology has changed that condition.
I got my first digital camera when I was around eighteen years old. It was a gift from my dad, I could not believe it! I like it very much because it's a proffesional camera: Nikon D40. At the first time, I didn't know how to use it because it was not easy, it has a lot of manual options. I learned alone by reading the manual for technical options and trying to take pictures.

Why Nikon is my favourite piece of tecnologhy? Well, I think the camera gives me the possibility to capture moments that I want to remember. Before I'm going to take a picture, I love playing with the lights, tonalities, focus modes, and anothers options.  The pictures I take depends on  the situation. When I'm on a journey, I prefer to take panoramic photos and to observe the landscape, while if  i'm in a social situation I usually take portrait photos.

According to what I said, I guess my life without digital camera, would not be as terrible as we think.  However, it's a nice tool to learn the art of composition and obtain good pictures that represent something important and striking.  But...I confess I can not imagine a trip without a camera.

POST 1:  My autobiography

What it my life story?
I will tell a part of it. I born on August 14, 1990, in Argentina, Buenos Aires. My father was from Buenos Aires but my Mom was born in Mendoza, so they married in Mendoza and then they went to live at the big city of Argentina. I have one brother who is 24 years old. We went together at the same garden near my house called "Colegio Bernal". During the elementary and the high school we went to "Midlans college". I always lived with my family in Buenos Aires until I was 11 years old. However, in 2000, my country was experiencing an economic crisis so my parents decided to move to Chile. I had 11 years old when I arrived at the William Kilpatrick´s school, in Santiago. At the begining it was difficult to me and my family because we missed our relatives and friends, but little by little we started to adapt to this new culture.
Now, I have been living in Chile for 10 years and I like it. One thing I like from here is that the beach is so close, I can't believe that Viña is just an hour from Santiago. Unlike Bs.As that you have to travel for at least 4 hours by car to touch the sand. Well, talking about the beach, I love travel and meet different places like rivers and hills, mountains and snow, towns and cities. One of my dreams is to travel around Latin America and to know other countries and their cultures. What else do I like? I have a lot of hobbies, I do many sports; trekking, biking, running but my favorite is circus. I practice aerial silk, aerial ring and trapeze for around 3 or 4 years. I really enjoy to going to concerts, shows and parties with my friends. I love to cook different foods, usually sweets, and share this passion with my family or friends.

I’m not going to write about a concert, singer or a band because I have the opportunity to see an original and spectacular show called Mayumana. I went last Wednesday with two friends at the theater “Nescafé de las Artes” located in Manuel Montt, Providencia.   Maybe someone had heard about this show because I think is the second time they came to Chile. Mayumana is a dance troupe from Israel that uses a combination of rhythm and percussion, music and  visual effects  through body movements, acting, singing, jumping, and of course, dancing. 
I love their show because they express creativity through an innovative and contemporary dancing style accompanied with stenography and modern costumes.  One of the things that surprised me was the music that they do music with recycled instruments (like wooden crates or buckets of paint) and create sounds by using glasses and buckets with water.  Finally I can say that was great enjoy this show with my friends and learn something about culture.
