Artist Statement: Taking these pictures, I wanted to celebrate the beginning of Autumn! I thought about its attributes and the first thing that stood out to me was the falling of leaves. I wanted to embody the beautiful colours and unique patterns of a leaf. Since the project was framing, I decided that I need my photos to have contrast which I believe is a major part. In photoshop, I was able to use the blur tool and help create this 3D effect and enhance the original aperture. Ultimately, I believe that my pictures epitomize the beauty of Autumn.
