Different Approaches

“The artistic process of my photography work starts off with multiple ideas that come to mind. I write them down and then try to see what I can come up with for a composition.” - excerpt from the artist

My creative side started about 6-7 years ago with photography. I was inspired by my aunt and took photos non stop. As I got to high school, I took several art classes and by my Senior year, I knew I wanted to continue on and get deeper into the art field.

The artistic process of my photography work starts off with multiple ideas that come to mind. I write them down and then try to see what I can come up with for a composition. I work in both Film and Digital photography. I have to think of different approaches with whatever camera I am using at the time. If I am going for something creative, colorful, conceptual I will use digital. And if I am going for something elegant, a lot of contrast, bold I will use film.
