Silhouette lighting

Artist Statement:

The subject of these photographs are pictures of my own objects using silhouette lighting. The materials I used were my glasses, flowers, a notebook, an Eiffel tower figurine, and my wilson tennis racket. I chose to take pictures of these specific objects because I liked the effect that silhouette lighting could make the objects look. The elements of art that I used were shape and space. The principals of design that I used were contrast and balance. The composition rules that I used were informal balance and formal balance. This project relates to my life because I like using black and white for a lot of my artwork and I really like the effect of silhouette lighting. If I could go back and change anything I would have used the light room at school to get some of the objects in full silhouette.
