Which style of photo are you taking?


 

Un Sotheavy, 15, student at Wat Koh high school
“Photos are the way I express myself to other people. Since I started using Facebook, I began to be interested in taking photos. Expressing myself through pictures makes me feel happy: sometimes I take a picture of my emotions, whether laughing, smiling, or crying. I show the way I am. ”


Net Srey Sros, 20, junior at Norton University
“When I feel unhappy, I take a look at the pictures that I have taken and it reminds me of that time. For me, taking photos is the way that I can keep my own memory. Time is never still. I think when I get older and older I will look different from this moment. That is why I like to look beautiful in pictures, by putting on make-up.”


Thaknak Nara, 18, sophomore at Panha Chiet University
“I love taking photos that I can share with my friends. Moreover, I also love to shoot my friends showing the things they love, because I always want to catch up on their new fashion style. As I am young, I want to make my life happier by sharing new things with friends. So for every picture, I pose with something cool.”


Narak Piseth, 19, sophomore at Institute of Foreign Languages
“I like something that is creative and artistic so I keep changing my style and finding new ways to look attractive. Taking photos helps give me ideas to create a new style. I take a lot of photos because it’s easy and sometimes I find them attractive as well. When I look at other photos, it inspires me to create a new style in my photos and helps develop my own creativity.”


Lyda Makada, 18, student at Beltie International Institute
“I like showing initiative and taking photos with my own style, unlike others who prefer to copy other people.  For me, that’s really boring. I prefer to look different and take photos with a different look. ”
