Unique Lighting

Artist Statement:

The subject of this photograph is my friend Lauren standing behind a Coca-Cola refrigerator. While editing this photo I used the photo editor on my laptop to enhance the colors to make them brighter. I chose to create this photo because of the bright colors of the refrigerator and drinks and also the lighting from the inside of the refrigerator. The materials I used was Canon Rebel t5 camera and the photo editor on my laptop. The elements of art that I used were color and shape. The principles of design that I used were scale and emphasis. The composition rules/ techniques that I used was rule of thirds. My project evolved because I took a lot of different lighting images from different locations and and angles, but I liked the way this image turned out the best. I like that the lights from inside of the refrigerator are glowing on the glass doors and reflecting the words from inside. The meaning behind this image is to experiment with different techniques because you will never know which will turn out the best. This project relates to my life because it is a portrait of one of my friends and I like creating photographs that look like they were taken in a different time period; this photo looks like it came out of the 1950's. If I could change anything about this photo I would have focused the camera a little better because it is a little blurry in places.
