2Artist StatementMy artwork this year is focused around the details in life that are missed. I decided to do this project to challenge myself in photography. I started noticing the details around me and decided I would like to capture them. I use photography to have a creative outlet in my life. I feel a sense of pride when people praise my work or even when I am content with it. I am using this project to express what I feel is important within the world.I do black and white photography because I feel that it is truer art than digital. I feel that with digital not much work is put in to it and you can recreate the image multiple times. With black and white your print will never be the exact same as another. I feel that an image is really truly art when it does not need colors to make it interesting. It needs composition and tone to be captivating. Stripping away the colors leaves the image to seem simple and pure. I feel a larger sense of pride in my black and white images that I do with digital.My current project grew out of noticing fine details through out the year. It also developed out of my boots photo that I did last year. I realized I did not have to photograph just people in order to convey ideas. I have always enjoyed photographing people and I believed this would be a good way to challenge myself. I used it as an opportunity to grow as an artist.
