Artist Spotlight: Leora Derechin

Photo of Leora Derechin, taken by author

My name is Leora Derechin and I am a sophomore. When I was younger I had always been comfortable being in front of a camera but as I got older, I wanted to try something different. I purchased my first camera when I was in high school. I spent a lot of time taking photos and figuring out how editing works. Since then I have taken many stills and solo-shots, developing my skills ever since. I’ve always enjoyed taking photos and capturing the moment, it’s one of my favorite things to do.
