Intention / Roque's Weekly Review

It’s time for another update.  This week, I thought I’d show you a small part of one of the projects I’m working on in school in addition to everything else. So, let’s get this going.

1. Roqué on Youtube.

Plans are underway to film a small set of performances at my home of covers I’ve done over the years.  The first installment should be available in a few days. You will be able to view all of it on my Youtube channel. More details will be announced next week.

2. What’s going on at school?

I thought I’d take a minute to show part of one my school projects. In my digital photography class, we are currently exploring the concept of Aperture, which is commonly referred to as the f-stop. Every digital camera has a lens that expands or contracts to let in different amounts of light. I have been taking photos that convey the opposite ends of the Aperture spectrum.

Here is photo #1 with the f-stop at the lowest setting:

Here is photo #2 with the highest f-stop setting:

The higher the f-stop, the great the depth of field and the more everything is in focus. A lower f-stop has a narrower focus point. One setting is not better than the other, and both can be used to great effect. It is up to the photographer to determine what is appropriate for the subject matter.

I love playing around with this stuff!

3. My Blog Tropical Shade of Green

I am continuing on in my series about my experience as a performing pianist. You can read Part 3 of the series by clicking on the image below:

4. Pianissimo: the Roqué E-Newsletter

A new issue of my E-mail Newsletter Pianissimo hits mailboxes before the end of this month.  More details about upcoming projects, new photography, and another graphic poem will be included. It’s going to be a lovely issue.

Well, that’s all folks. I hope your week is going well. As of today, I am in my fourth week of school, and so far, all is going well.

Smile like a Sunshine!

Be kind and be generous.

-Roqué
