YOUTH IN FOCUS BLOG
May 2, 2022
Meet CCC Student, Julie!
"The Creative Career Cohort excited me because we had the chance to do photography in person with professional photographers! Due to COVID, I came across many virtual programs, but this possibility excited me.
Before Youth in Focus, I usually took Instagram pictures. I had a great experience with my phone camera, so I thought it would be wonderful to learn something new with an actual camera.
The people and things around me inspire me. While at the library, I had a fun idea: hide half of my face behind a book! Since the book's cover was blue, I decided to use Lightroom to match the background. With this self-portrait, I wanted to try something new and creative to give off a sense of vibes and positive energy.
My final and favorite image is of my cousin. We were about to order at McDonald's (my favorite fast food), and I was able to catch a unique expression in her eyes.
I am grateful for the opportunity to learn at Youth in Focus and for the people who encouraged me to be a part of something I enjoy doing."
