Iyonna Nicole Thomas - Optical Realities Indie Arts Initiative

I’ve been attending the photography program for a little over a year now and I love coming back each week and learning new ways to improve my photography skills. What keeps me coming back is my progression. I love looking at my photos from the previous weeks and being able to see my growth. I love learning special tricks to make my photos unique.

I initially joined the photography program because I was new to the Drueding Center and I saw a sign hanging that said the program would be starting up again. I was never interested in photography prior to joining the program.

My favorite kind of pictures to take are those of flowers, water, the sky, my children and different patters.

When you look at one of my pictures I hope you can see how much hard work and dedication I put into taking the pictures as well as my love for whatever is being photographed.
