My name is Nhan Nguyen, I attend Serra High School and am in my senior year. Intrigued with photography and its multiple variables and intricacies, I took the first year photography course my freshman year, and was ecstatic to take the second year course to further my knowledge and improve my composition skills. I enjoy balancing the multiple variables at play when taking a picture; adjusting the aperture and ISO in lower light conditions, or cranking up the shutter speed to capture fast motion clearly etc. In doing so I am able to benefit in my problem-solving abilities, a trait applicable to further aspects of academic work and life beyond school. I also enjoy the socialization involved in working collaboratively on group projects or while taking portraits. Overall I enjoy the multiple aspects of photography, and am interested in exploring more deep and intricate parts of photography this semester.
