What’s your favorite type of photography?

My favorite type of photography is not only nature and landscape, but photos of people. I feel the pictures of the people you are surrounded with helps you remember what your time on the trip was like. I prefer to use the camera angles to my advantage as I feel photos can look amazing slanted, upside down, and in other views.

In what ways do you think photography is important?

Photography is one of the ways we can visibly document things we see first person. I feel taking photos can allow for a stronger memory of the time spent. I want to look back on my photos one day and think of all the good and bad times I have had.

 

How did your summer with VISIONS change the path you were on?

I decided because I was so interested in community service to join the Interact Club at my school and to take AFJROTC as one of my classes. I felt inspired by helping people and being able to come home and show my friends and family what I had done. My photos expressed those things in such an astonishing way!
