Oscar has a reflex film Nikon we wants to fully understand before buying a digital reflex. he got his camera from his father years ago and never fully understood how it works. So he got his Photocircuit from Muchomasqueunregalo.com and came along with 2 cameras.

We met at the Jaume I metro station, near Plaça St Jaume to walk across the Gothic Quarter. First they asked me to explain about basic functions like Aperture, Speed, ISO, Depth of Field, and White Balance so while we walked we took pictures of a very sunny Barcelona understanding concepts at the Felipe Neri Square

Half an hour later all technical issues were solved, we had some nice pictures and the hunt for city images started. They wanted to capture the Jaume I square, Santa Maria del Mar, The Cathedral and Paseo del Borne.

Both digital and analogical cameras worked well, specially chasing the geese at the cathedral´s back patio and capturing portraits of the crowd that surrounded a soap bubble street artists at Paseo del Borne. kids were running after the bubbles and Oscar could capture every smile and jump they did.

Santa Maria del mar was a hard task for Oscar trying to capture the reflex of the stained glass that the afternoon light project in the interior of this church, very soft and delicate blue and orange lights created strange shaped in the columns and Oscar was delighted. While he took the pictures two weddings occurred the low light and his wish for details of this interior demanded very long exposures.

Black and white (Ilford HP 400) , and color film (Kodak Gold 200) together with a Sony digital made the day for Oscar and his partner, many questions came up and were solved drawing one smile after another on their faces (my best payment ever).

When the 3 hours ended it seemed to me they wanted more, but the afternoon was over, we had walked for 3 hours and the light was fading so we went for a
