Sherri Hastings, Gettysburg, PA Member Since October 2010 Artist Statement I am a photographer and so much more. I am a tree hugging, nature loving, hippy chic. I am free spirited, open minded, honest, compassionate, empathetic, and very liberal. I believe liberation from difficulties is within everyone, possibility of liberation comes from living a compassionate life of virtue, wisdom, and meditation. I enjoy long walks in the woods, camping, and spending time with Mother Nature. My children are my world. The Princess Bride is the greatest movie. Today I am grateful! I try to capture the raw emotion and essence of life in the photographs I take. Photography represents how I view the world I live in. While creating an image I feel the emotion I'm trying to capture. I'm inspired by nature's vivid colors and the natural harmony of my subjects. I express my inspirations in my work with the use of background choices, lighting and composition of each image. Photographs are captured in a moment making timing very important. Every great photo I take captures how I view the world around me, this allows me to express myself in my work. I have had several influences in photography. Eva Arnold, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ansel Adams, Douglas Kirkland, and Bambi Cantrell. It is my vision to make memories affordable, by taking high quality photographs that capture your most precious moments. I want to capture emotion through the use of color, light and composition, in a free spirited photo journalistic style. My goals for the future are to finish my Internship at Washington School of Photography and to open my own studio. In the meantime I will continue to market locally and on line as well.
