Living In The Light

This past December during my final semester of college(hooray!), I took a photography class. I wanted to make sure I actually knew what I was doing with a camera instead of just always having to set it on “auto”, you know?

Here is the result of my class, my final portfolio, which was titled “Living In The Light”, and the Artist statement to go along with it.

“Art is essentially our interpretation of the world around us. For me, photography has become an outlet of creation which I have learned to manipulate through the lens to truly capture specific moments and objects of life which most of the time may go overlooked. Sure, every individual looks at a piece of art and can think of it differently, however, I believe through my photographs the subject of tranquility is very direct.

            The use of nature and light throughout my images is prominent and is very obvious, which is why I title this work “Living in the Light”. This has several meanings to me in my personal life, so gathering images of the outdoors, gathering images of flowers, animals, and light, all to me portray the ability we each have to create peace on this world, to live simply throughout our daily life, and to cherish even the smallest little lady bug that lands on our hands. I have learned that life is very precious, and beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. We have the ability to open our eyes and see the wonder of the world, and while you look at my photographs, I will not let you let it pass you by.”

 

Dance Among The Stars

Motivation for this blurb

When you realize what you’re good at, what one of your purposes of life, if not only your sole purpose is in life, don’t give into the fear or the illusion of the world around you.

You can do whatever you want. You can get whatever you want out of life. Just, GO for it. Ask the Universe for it.

The road to where you want to be will more than likely take a lot more effort than you think, but, ultimately you will benefit from the sacrifices and the results that you’re getting far more than if you become dulled by the fear that your own mind creates..

‘Risk being seen in all of your glory..’

‘The effect you have on people is the greatest currency there is..’

So go, be great.. Do what you love, be humble, live with humility and drive, dance among the stars..

Our time is now.
