Still Life

Artist Statement:

The subject of this photograph is skis and snowboards on a rack at Sugarloaf mtn. While editing this photo I used the photo editor on my phone to enhance the lighting and add warmth to the photo. I chose to create this photo because I liked the way the skis were overlapping each other and it sticks with the theme of skiing that I have been using. The materials I used was phone camera and the photo editor on my phone. The elements of art that I used were color and shape. The principles of design that I used were pattern and contrast. The composition rules/ techniques that I used was informal balance. My project evolved because I changed the angles of which I took the photos from and what skis were in the photo to get it to look the way that I wanted it to. The meaning behind this image is that even in the busiest and most stressful times in life it is important to still do that things that you love. This project relates to my life because I love to go skiing with my family almost every weekend. If I could change anything about this photo I would have included more of the mountain in the background.
