The Color of Beauty: photo 1

Artist Statement

Lighting and color affect everything. They shape the world that we see in all ways. By controlling lighting, attention can be brought to the features that are the most striking and the most flattering. Color can be introduced into a photo to invoke emotion, painting a story. I used a “clamshell” lighting to create a striking photo; complementary colors on either side of the photo introduced drama that pierced through the photo.
