One of the perks of being part of the photographic society is the opportunity to document our school's wide-ranging CCA activities. I see this as a chance to challenge my photography skills and adapt to exacting shooting environments oftentimes presented before me when I confront these tasks. But I think what's most rewarding is the interaction with friends from other CCAs. When I show them their photos, when I discuss with them about how to improve, when I listen to their interpretations of my photos... The interaction generated by a single photo is amazing. The appreciation of the art of photography sees no language or cultural barriers... All that it assumes is our humanity.
I am Ziren Wang, a student from Raffles Institution, Singapore. I picked up a camera in January 2009 in my school's photographic society, and I have never looked back. Years later, I have explored various different forms of photography, from event coverage, to fashion, to documentary, to photography using DIY lenses, and most recently, to film.
