As our month at New York University as Tisch summer high school students ends, the level of stress for completing projects and essays rises dramatically. The program has been full of exciting events, projects, and new friendships. Although the workload is extremely heavy, the skills we have all learned are more than rewarding. We learned how to use different editing softwares, set up studios and lighting, give thoughtful critiques, and most importantly, honed our photography skills.
I think I speak for the other 16 students in the program when I say this experience has been one of a million. The endless memories formed will stay with all of us after Saturday when the month is over, and hopefully we will meet again sometime, either at NYU or later in life. My passion for photography has escalated incredibly quickly, and I am excited to go back to Portland and continue shooting and using my newly learned skills!
