Sal y Dulce!

Hi, my name is Leanise. Sunday, we went to the Sal y Dulce event. I liked it over there because there was a lot of cool art and they made cool Columbian art and statues and it was cool. They made jewelry and all this other stuff and it was really cool and I liked it. I was shocked when I got there because it was different and I was scared and when we were over there we met people from Columbia and it was cool because we got to make stuff and it was like a creative thing to do. We got to make art too and pretend we are designers and make our own things. It was cool to tell other people about Shutterbugs but there were a lot of people over there and I was nervous. We got to tell people about it. The part I liked was talking to people because you got to tell people how you made you pictures and why you did. Mine was Momma's Boy that was for sale there and I took it during Christmas time. I like it because it showed a lot of bonding. I liked Sal y Dulce.

Pinhole Cameras


Hi. Im back to tell you about my first time using a pinhole camera! This wasn't a hard process. First, I picked a can to use then we put a hole in it and put tape over the hole. After that me and my friends (the other people part of the shutterbugs) went to our school's dark room and made chemicals to help with our pictures. We turned the lights off in the dark room to put special paper into our cans. It gets ruined if the light hits it. After that, we went outside to a spot we wanted. We pulled the tape off and waited two minutes for the picture. After all of that, we went back to the dark room and took the paper out the can and placed it into the chemicals. It was amazing! Our pictures came out so perfect and clear. I was amazed and so was my teacher because no pinhole picture has ever came out that clear. I was so happy because I had never used a pinhole camera before.

My First Experience

My first experience with pinholes wasn't that bad, but I had to stay still for the sunlight to go in the hole. What I mean is we took pictures with cans and use these photo paper to take the picture. It was also fun too because sunlight goes in the paper to make the photo and I think that was cool. My first experience was fun actually and not that bad because I had to stay still for 2 minutes and staying still is not easy for me. Again, I still really liked it.

1st Year!

Hi my name is Madeline. This is my first year in Shutterbugs. I am in the 7th grade and in a school called John B Stetson. I believe that being in Shutterbugs is great because I love the experience that we get to go through when we take pictures.

Pinhole Pictures!

Hi, my name Rosie. This is a pinhole camera photo that me and my fellow Shutterbugs Luis and Xavier. We did this on the first try and it came out awesome. In case you didn't know what a pinhole camera is, lucky for you I will give you the answer! A pinhole camera is basically a can. What you do is you get a can for example a Goya can and you poke a hole in the front center then you put a piece of duck tape over the hole. After you do that you have to spray paint the inside black. Then, you put a photography paper in the inside and you close it shut because if you let it hit the light, the picture will mess up completely. That's how you take a pinhole photo!


I’m Karisma Ortiz. 15 years old. Im in the 8th grade at John B. Stetson Charter School getting ready to graduate. I’m not your average 15 year-old. Yes, I have social media and I do interact with others. But I am more focused on myself and school. 

Now, it is November 28, 2017 and this is my first year in Shutterbugs. I wanted to join the Shutterbugs because I wanted to express myself.  I also wanted to join the Shutterbugs because I want other people to know my story.  As a 8th grader, I am determined to graduate this year. Also, I am determined to let nothing get in my way . I will not let anything stop me.
