Open Mic: Small Creatures by Rachel Beth


Meet the Photographer

How old are you? 
I am 18 years old.
Where do you live?
I am currently living in Central Asia where I have lived since I was one.
What classes are you taking this year?
This year with TPS, I am taking Anatomy and Physiology with Mrs. Carrier and Modern History, Lit and Comp (Honors) with Mr. Mailand and Mrs. Yagel, both of which I highly recommend!
What is your favorite thing about photography? 
I enjoy how photography allows me to investigate the world around me and creatively showcase what I see.  My favorite genre is portraiture, but lately I’ve been trying to expand my horizons and explore macro photography.
