My Final Critique at Art School

Got back to school was the best thing I could've done for my photographic career.

Every class contributed to boost my creative process, the feedback from the faculty and peers are priceless. I really enjoyed the whole experience, now I 'm more focused into reach my objectives and I have tools to do it.

I'm also very luckily to have such a supportive family, thanks!!

One of my pieces showed in the final studio critique at Miami International University of Art & Design. Architectural photograph on engineering printing, the same printer and paper where architects print their blueprints.

LIKE MAGIC. POEM + PHOTOS

Time-lapse video poem about photography.
A time-lapse video is a sequence of photographs playing in real time to create the illusion that time is moving faster.

Water Sports by Gilberto Salazar in "Upgraded Living" Magazine August

In the last issue of "Upgraded Living", a lifestyle magazine from California, two photographs taken by me for a essay project about kayaking were published. The magazine got the rights to publish my photograph thanks to Student Stock; an excellent stock photography site where students can upload their images for sale. Great way to also get some comments from experienced photographers and fellow photo students.

Google Glass can do almost everything...

I wanted to photograph my Glass since I got them, 3 months a go, but I had no particular concept at that time, recently I thought about this idea for an assignment, was fun put the whole shoot together. I've been busy exploring Glass's capabilities while I trying to wear it more often to find out how could it fit in my daily life, so far, It is a pretty cool device.

Google Glass Experience - The Invitation

Google Glass Experience

The Invitation

 

When I read that Google has an open waiting list to get Glass Explorer Edition I just clicked the link, fill the form and thought “Lets think about it when they send me an invitation, if they ever do it”, less than two months later… I received an email from glass-support saying “Hi there”, and was just time to begin to think about it. First of all the high price tag to try the ultimate gadget as a prototype, a very mass-distribute one, $1500, the chance to buy it last just one week, no pressure right, the research began, reviews from developers, forums about it, web articles from Techcrunch to the New York Times, they listed all the Glass features and possibilities in the near future, new apps dedicated to Glass, but just guessing about a date for public release, how much will cost, its worth it? Them I check eBay and I found the final push to get my Glass, some headsets were for sale higher than the original cost, so maybe I can try it on and resell it later if I don't fell in love with the Glass, the catch, sell the device before will be available for everyone at a lower cost, decisions, all it takes were a couple of days before I clicked the link with my code, sign in with my Google account and bought it, just two more days and the headset was already in my hands, was exciting just open the box and unpackaged the Glass ”Its here”, “Let’s get started”, the basic setup was about 10 min, time to look through the Glass.
