My name is Charae Friesen. I am a high school student in Hamilton, Ontario. I began taking up the interest of photography at a young age. Being able to express my ideas and outlook on life, through my photos, has helped in developing my interest. Digital cameras have helped me in taking photos due to the fact that you can see the outcome immediately instead of days/weeks later. If you are unhappy with what you see, you can immediately make changes, such as adjusting the exposure or the colour levels. These are options that the digital camera also provides. Programs, such as Photoshop, help to emphasize certain elements or ideas within a photo. I have taken that next step in sprucing up photos, bringing them to the next level.
As a teenager, in 2010, photography plays a great role in learning and developing new ideas. It helps me to grasp the wonders that are in this world. Also, it allows me to express my artistic views with others through the internet and other means. Personally, I believe that photography is a way to express oneself without words.
