Nature By aleXis

Artist statement

I choose nature for my finale project because nature is all around us and I think it is really beautiful of all the colors it has. Also how we use a lot of nature for stuff that we have tables, paper, pencils, flowers and wood. And I see a lot of really good photographers use nature in most of their photos and I hope one day I will be as good as them. Fun fact: Some trees can live up to 5000years depends on the species.

A few others that I took


My name is Alexis Martinez, I am 14 years old. And I was born in Othello Washington and moved to Vancouver when I was one. I am currently trying to teach myself more photo techniques so I could be better in the future or the next time I take a photo class. I like taking pictures of things that stand out more than others like if they are colorful. But I like taking pictures of a lot of things and also I like taking pictures of landscapes because I think some landscapes are really beautiful. I am all about color and how it makes things stand out but also how dark colors make some things stand out to and that’s what I take picture of things that have colors in it . My life is not that interesting but my mom really likes me taking photos. I like taking photos but I also really like sports and sometimes I would take pictures at practice so everything I do it feels like I could take a really good pictures. But my brother was in photo to and he kind of helps me think of photo ideas and teaches me how to take the pictures . My education is studying really hard for finals so I can pass so in the future so I could become someone in the law industries. And for me to become what I want to be I have to pass classes and study a lot.

I think that I have always liked taking photos. When I first got a phone I loved taking pictures of a lot of different things but mostly colors and sunsets and I would always take pictures for my friends and family. Even when my whole family went camping I would like to take pictures of the scenery there because I thought it was really beautiful. I don’t know why I like taking a lot of photos maybe it’s because I think that 1 picture could tell a whole story. But the key moment I knew I liked taking pictures is when my best friend and I walked around in Milwaukie Oregon and took pictures of the river and graffiti we walked past train tracks we walked over I took over 100 picture that day and ever since that day I loved taking photos and that was 4 years ago.

My experience in photo class is really cool and I really like how Mr.Emmert added other photographers picture to the class cite because those pictures gave me a lot of good ideas on what I want to take pictures of and the one I really like was of the graffiti and the texture of the wall and how it’s old and breaking and the colors it had by Hungarian photographer borbalas urban texture series. I want to become someone in the law industries but I think I’ll always take pictures because that’s what I like to do. I want to explore the world and go to really cool places I have never been before. But I also think that I want to help solve crimes for detectives. I want to go to college for 4 years for law.
