Dwin James Photography

... where you will see some of the photos we have turned into greeting cards and some others we have turned into prints.

        Greeting cards come individually or in boxes of ten

        Prints come matted ready for framing

... Doing outdoor photography seems like doing found art - one uses whatever is present in a way that brings out a truth, gives joy, or does both.

Light and shapes, and animals and geography are the primary ingredients in our work. Of course, light produces colors as well as illuminates the shapes and textures of what we see.

Bad photos have the potential to be reworked into something different from the original idea - especially nice when we cannot easily return to the original target of our photo session. These could suggest abstract visions to play with.

A photo's work is never done until someone other than the artist views it; and then, the work may only be commencing as the viewer looks at the photo again, and again. Perchance the work never completes itself as different persons bring their particular views of life to the scene.

May you be one of the many viewers of our photography who initiate a commencement of work of our photos.
