When Mena first starting taking photos it was a
routine of point, shoot, put a filter on it. There
was little manipulation focused on documentation. She eventually started thinking of her
photos as more of a creative endeavor, putting
more consideration into the output. Mena often asks herself “Am I telling a story?, Am I
doing something new?” when taking photos.
She still finds joy in taking lifestyle pictures and
of things simply because they’re pretty, but is
always pushing herself to create.
