Student Spotlight – Roberta Cadore

(This is the fourth in a series of seven articles highlighting student work from our recent PhotoExpedition in Brazil.)

Roberta Cadore

Roberta Cadore is a professional photographer covering weddings, portraits and events in the city of Primavera do Leste, about 1600km northwest of São Paulo.

Roberta was a returning student, having done the first PhotoExpedition with us in August.

“The experience was incredible. We learned a lot of portrait techniques, especially how to observe and shoot in all kinds of light to capture the best moment. I feel more confident now because I am allowing myself to take a new or different point of view, use light differently and new ways to approach image making.

The interesting thing about this workshop is that as I return home to work, I am still learning from the ideas we discussed. It is a learning process that never ends because every day I remember one small detail or one example that I can apply in my own work.

The three most important things I learned are to 1) See, watch and capture the best moment in the best light, 2) How to direct a portrait scene when needed, and 3) to keep changing my point of view until I can find the best angle for the moment.

The most exciting part of the PhotoExpedition was the edit sessions where we all get together to look at our images. It’s very interesting and educational to see how each person approaches a situation. We all photographed the same events but often with very different results.”

    Izan Petterle - Roberta, Roberta…
    I will repeat again, to have a complete and appropriated vision of the things we are shooting, we have to be patient to wait to see the final result as body of work. You did a great job, congratulations! Remember this: experience is not what happens to you, experience is what you do with the things that happens to you.
    Grande abraço.
