Artist Statement: For this assignment, I didn’t have much of an idea as to what I was trying to photograph. But when I stepped outside to the beautiful snow, I knew immediately I needed a winter feel added to my pictures. I noticed the numerous footprints in the snow and inspired me to take the first picture with the footprints leading to the trees and sunshine. My other pictures. The other picture with the boots I felt had a cool perspective as well captured the winter element I aspired for. My third photo is featuring Grycel. I really like it but also wish I had thought about the photo a bit more. I didn’t realize until after that the concept of the photograph was Grycel and she was almost a shadow. I did my best in photoshop to adjust the brightness without completely washing her out and still keeping my blue theme. I’m happy with how all my pictures turned out and I hope I don’t make the same mistakes again.
