”The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” –Dorothea Lange
Anyone can buy a camera and take pictures but it takes a special person to be able to look through that lens and make a work of art. This is something I have learned and developed over the past couple years. I started as a volunteer for The Rocket last year and I spent the school year helping the current editor, Lexi with whatever was needed. During that time I was fortunate enough to win a few awards and get me going on the right track towards the road that I am on now. As the end of my freshman year dwindled to a close I applied to be this year’s Photo Editor and I was awarded the position. This job has been able to teach me a lot about how to run a specific portion of a newspaper and to be really on top of my work so I am able to get everything done. When I came into school I didn’t see myself being the Photo Editor of our schools newspaper but becoming more and more involved in it I can really see this as something I could be doing for the rest of my life. I love taking pictures and I would love to be able to make it my future.
