My name is Adrienne Lipka; I'm a junior at Carson High School and I am involved in the photography club. I enjoy taking pictures because it enables me to escape from my everyday life and capture the beauty of my surroundings at one specific second.
I took this picture while I was on a hike along the Carson River. I glanced over my shoulder and came to a dead stop; the amazing view was something I wanted to remember for the rest of my life.

Photography is a way for me to show everyone how I view life; it's through my own eyes. All of my photographs reflect my personal style. I believe that by seeing life in a perspective, other than their own, people will open their minds.
My name is Halley Picton and I'm a junior at Carson High School. I am a second-year photography student of Susan Taylor's. I enjoy taking photographs that involve nature and signs of silence. While shooting this photograph I was able to reflect upon my thoughts in a natural environment.
Photography gives any student the chance to express their feelings and develop a personal style.

I took these photographs while visiting a vineyard with a friend's family. I wanted to capture the beauty I saw at the time so I could share it with others. This is the reason I enjoy photography; I take pictures because I am able to preserve a moment in time to remember and to share. I am really happy B'Sghetti's is allowing us to display our photographs. Now the community is able to see the talent of the youth.

I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given as a student at Carson High School and by far I treasure what I've been taught in my years of photography under the direction of Susan Taylor the most. The ability to take photographs is irreplaceable to me. I never could really draw, so being able to paint a picture through objects on film is incredible. When I took these photographs I was attempting to set in film the perfection this staircase possesses and to present a princess daydreaming about her future prince. I know that when I take a photograph it has phenomenal sentimental value to me because it's solely something I have made.
