Photo Unveiling at Tse Yaato High School

Patilena Aguero will be recognized in a photo unveiling in the lobby of Tse Yaato High School, 583 South Lake Powell Boulevard, at 3:30 on Thursday, October 13. The public is invited and refreshments will be served. The photograph of Aguero’s great-grandmother, 87 year old Anna Beach of Inscription House, has been described as “National Geographic quality” by her photography teacher, Shelly Wayne. Wayne teaches Tse Yaato High School students photographic composition and emphasizes camera settings to achieve superior results over software manipulation of photographs.

Aguero first took photographs of Page Animal Adoption animals for their website to learn more about photographic techniques. Then she took the camera home, returning with fifteen photos of her great-grandmother including the featured photo. When the photo was transformed from color to black and white, the true quality of the photo was apparent to everyone.

Wayne, a professional photographer with her own company, Amazed Photography, was very impressed with the progress Aguero has made in her photography class this semester. Wayne uploaded the photograph and paid for it to be printed on aluminum and shipped back to the school for display.

The sentiment of the portrait is captured in the quote, “Do your best in school, my children.”

Aguero, nineteen years old, attends the TAP program at Tse Yaato High School with her two-year old daughter, Kadence, and hopes to graduate in December or at Spring Break.

She attended Tse Yaato High School last year and is making excellent progress this year by bringing her daughter to school with her. Aguero hopes to pursue a nursing degree after graduation and is investigating a variety of options for gaining her nursing education.

The photo unveiling is an opportunity for community members to see an outstanding young woman who has captured an outstanding photograph.
