Creative Landscape

Artist Statement:

The subject of this photograph is a landscape at Sugarloaf ski mountain. In the photograph there are ski lifts and people and Bigelow mountain preserve in the background. While editing this photo I used the photo editor on my laptop to enhance the blue tone in the image and brighten up the color. I chose to create this photo because I really liked this landscape photo and I think that it is a very strong image. The materials I used were my iPhone camera and the photo editor on my laptop. The elements of art that I used were value and form. The principles of design that I used were rhythm/ movement and proportion/ scale. The composition rules/ techniques that I used was informal balance. My project evolved because I first took a couple different photos and then I edited them in different ways to see which one I liked the best. The meaning behind this image is capture the beauty in the world. This project relates to my life because this area means a lot to my family and I. We hike up Bigelow mountain in the summer and go swimming in the lake below it and in the winter we go skiing at Sugarloaf. If I could change anything about this photo I would have used my Canon camera to have a higher quality image.
