NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

With the help of donors some Nacogdoches children are getting to show their creative side through a photography project with the Boys and Girls Club and the Nacogdoches Photography Association.

With the help of cameras, East Texans will soon see the world through the eyes of children.

"When you get close and see all of the beautiful shades, it's like you're making a drawing of real life," fourth grader Tera White said.

"Kids are so enthusiastic," Elton Scifres, president of the Nacogdoches Photography Association said. "They are fearless when it comes to taking pictures."

The students have been spending weeks taking photographs for their exhibit that will premier in may.

The cameras were all donated and gave the children a chance to experience the world in a new way.

"It opens up their creativity a little bit and get them seeing the world a little different," Scifres said.

For many of the children, it is a brand new experience.

"I get to take really pretty pictures of stuff I haven't seen before, like bees on flowers," third grader Alondra Martinez said.

The students made sure to use every angle they could; even pulling back layers of plants to see the beauty that lay beneath.

"It helps me because I can see things creatively," third grader Alexandria Galvan said.

"You get to feature all of the special things you like in your life," third grader Teasia Jones said.

Knowing that each shot is a new adventure, and a new way to see the world.

"You usually don't see the things that you are trying to look for," fourth grader Taylor Gates said.

 A group of judges will decide what photos from the project will be part of an exhibit that opens up at the Cole center in May in Downtown Nacogdoches.
