Leah Sheran’s photography evoked a sense of mystery during a recent photo shoot on a snowy winter day. The Huntington High School sophomore headed outside to complete an assignment and walked back into welcomed warmth with several sensational images.
“Photography has interested me since I was little,” Ms. Sheran said. “I would always take pictures of everything on any device I could find. When I found out it was a class at Huntington High School, I immediately knew I wanted to take it. So far, I have really been enjoying the class and I have been able to discover new camera techniques and my creative abilities.”
The teenager has quickly become one of teacher Pamela Piffard-Williams’ prized young photographers. Ms. Sheran clearly possesses an artistic flair and an eye for a what would be a great photo. She uses a Nikon D40 digital SLR camera and is well on her way to mastering all of its settings.
The images Ms. Sheran captured are really delightful, while certainly a bit mysterious. “In both pictures, you can see the snow falling with beautiful scenery in the background,” she said. “The second picture features my dog and my sister who were playing in the snow and I snapped a photo of them.”
Respected by her classmates, the popular Ms. Sheran is the treasurer of Huntington’s Class of 2023. She possesses a long list of talents, among them are her skills as a photographer.
