Artist Statement

I am from Ithaca, NY and have lived in Cazenovia for 4 years. My medium is digital photography; which I have been exploring for the past 5 years. Many different factors have shaped me as an artist such as the grief of my Mom's passing in 2015 and 13 years as a Ballet dancer. There is also a direct correlation between my love of suspense and puzzles, and my images of reflections in windows and water. I enjoy creating images that cause the viewer to ponder what is hidden in the shadows. Along with these, Trees and leaves are a favorite subject of mine. I find the gnarled roots and twisting branches almost hypnotizing.

I also do: weddings, portrait and fashion photography, realtor, and head shots.

Artistic Process

I consider my photography, artistic and strive to capture images which are unique. The first steps in photographing are the technical ones.  I continually adjust exposure, amount of flash, depth of field, and composition in order to create a certain feeling or story.   Often, I take the image more than once, with different settings which gives me more options to work with when it comes to editing.   I also choose a specific lens for certain subjects.   Some - such as a macro lens - is for a small object from a short distance away; which creates a lovely blurred background. Another lens,  captures more detailed surroundings from a longer distance away – such as landscapes. 

The editing process  is another aspect of my art, as a photographer. This is where I feel more creative. Although, it is important to me to maintain natural looking images.  For the past 2 years; I have been experimenting with Photoshop and Bridge software.  There are so many things to do with editing.  For a basic edit, I might: increase or decrease contrasting textures;  increase shadows;  intensify original colors – in order to inspire a certain mood or add to a color scheme; remove objects; or play with lighting in certain areas I wish to draw attention to. 

I do send my images for cards and any other products out to a company to be printed. However, I have given specific directions about each card.  This includes:  image, design, what is written on the card, and my business info. For professionally displaying my images; I have a friend in Syracuse who does all my framing, matting, and mounting.
