Knightdale eighth-grader Morgan Morse has been taking pictures for two years but uses her camera quite a bit more than the average scrapbooker.
Morse got her start in taking pictures when her mom bought her a 2-megapixel camera. She found the camera worked decently, but decided she needed something above and beyond, so her mom went out and bought her a 10-megapixel camera.
It was then that she heard from a friend if she posted her photos to the triangle.com web site, there would be a chance for them to be published in the Eastern Wake News.
The picture snapping began. Morse went around taking all kinds of pictures and posting them on the web site. Since she began posting, Eastern Wake News has published 25 of her photos in the newspaper.
Now, taking pictures isn't just a hobby to Morse, it's a habit. When she gets home from school she gets the camera out and goes to work. She loves photography and hopes to take classes to fine-tune her skills once she gets to high school in the fall.
Morse encourages Eastern Wake News readers to post their photos to the triangle.com web site “because you will get your picture in the newspaper."
