Artist Statement:

The subject of this photograph is a pizza with wood and a wood burning fireplace in the background. To create this photo I took a picture of the pizza from partial birds eye view and including some of the background because it contributes to the narrative of this image. While editing this photo I used my iphone and the iphoto options to enhance some of the colors. I chose to create this photo because I liked all of the colors of the pizza and this is one of my favorite foods. I really liked that I was able to capture the wood burning oven and wood in the background. The material I used was my phone camera, I then edited it using the iphoto setting on my phone. The elements of art that I used were color, shape, and texture. The principles of design that I used were emphasis and balance. The composition rules/ techniques that I used was informal balance. My project evolved because I took many pictures from different angles to see which angle I liked to take the photo from best. The meaning behind this image is to always enjoy the things that you love in life. This project relates to my life because this is a photo of one of my favorite foods and I always have it when I am hanging out with my friends so it reminds me of being with them. If I could change anything about this photo I would have it fit better within my concentration.
