A Look Through Convertini’s Lens

Beauty is
in the eye of the beholder, and in the lens of camera.

“I was around 13 years old when I got my first pair of glasses. I was nervous about how they would change my vision, but the minute they sat on the bridge of my nose the world was more pronounced with color and shapes,” said senior Cassandra Convertini. “I had the same feeling of joy that day as I did when I received my camera.”

Photography isn’t just about getting a great shot to Convertini, it’s about what she can do with what she sees through the lens.

“The way you can manipulate one area in so many different ways with just one camera astounds me,” said Convertini. “I find myself deciding how to take pictures of things or people even without my camera with me.”

Her camera is like a friend or a form of therapy which helps Covertini when she is in need.

“Photography has become a defining hobby in my life as it has helped me through some rough patches,” Convertini said.

The pictures Convertini takes are not only for her own enjoyment, she also prefers showing off her work to others.

“As photography has been a gift to me, I hope to share the pictures I take with those around me,” Convertini said.
