Jessica Reguera, Photographer

As a nature photographer, Jessica Reguera, freshman, enjoys snapping photos of many different species of nature. In her photographs, she has no specific preference of what type of nature she captures. She enjoys using unusual angles while making the photos more interesting.

“My favorite photo was one that I took while in downtown Portland of a glass wall with raindrops running down it,” Reguera said. “I like different angles and just different things, nothing ordinary.”

Reguera also has a knack for taking photos of her medium-sized pug, Frankie. These photos usually end up on Christmas cards that she sends to others who can appreciate her pictures of her dog.

Reguera prefers digital photography over film photography.

“You can view what you're taking and if it’s not good you can retake it” Reguera said. “It’s a hassle with film to do that.”

When it comes to film photography, she likes the quality and different views that you can receive from film photography. Reguera’s favorite place to take photos is at the beach.

“You can do so much there, there's endless possibilities like the water, the sand and the scenery,” Reguera said.

As she goes on in high school she hopes to take more photography classes, preferably digital photography.

When Reguera is not taking photos, she is creating web layouts. Web design is a hobby of hers that started about three years ago when she saw her friend’s brother making web sites and she thought it was interesting. Web design is one of her classes this semester where she has made web layouts but hasn't made her own web site yet.

“I likes web design because its fun and I get to make web layouts and work in Photoshop,” Reguera said.

Reguera eventually wants to make a website for her photography. This website would help combine her love of photography and her hobby of web design into one. This will also help her to share her knowledge of photography and web design. Reguera’s favorite thing about photography is “It can capture what can’t really be see with your eyes.”
