Eerie Imagery

Abandoned House in Farm Field

As the wind howls the deep seeded shade of black falls upon the night sky; candles blow in the cob-webbed window as the leaves rattle against the outside panes to remind me that life is here. The fireplace crackles at the feet of my old weathered chair as my soul searching eyes stare back at me through the sheets of cracked glass that swath the warmth. The angels must be grieving in the deep woods of the cemetery tonight as I hear their cries amongst the torrential downpour and thunderous clouds. The eerie silence that is followed by yellowish morning light is amplified by the deafening ringing in my ears. Nights like these are far from just scary, fearful or timid. The fear of the unknown and is what is strangely out of sorts and frightens me to my core. It is my imaginings that are mysterious, ghostly, and gives me the creeps. Like dark old castles, misty graveyards and creaky sounds in the middle of the night. There is something about ghost stories, old black and white images, or the eeriness of picture that can haunt your dreams and fill your mind with haste and spectacle.

Sometimes the things you see in the shadows are more than just shadows.

I. Love. Photography. I love it. It lightens my heart, fills my soul, and allows me to capture life the way that I see it. I constantly yearn to show life in a way that hasn’t been seen before, to bring images to people in a fresh and innovative way. My favorite focus in photography, my specialty I guess you would say, is Railroad Photography & Art. Something about the rumbling of these great, big, beautiful machines. The way they shake the earth beneath you as they rumble by, how they invade your chest and you can feel the rumble inside you. The plumes of heat on a hot day represented in a heat wave. Snaking through a western valley, void of trees or any other distracting element. Just the train, by itself, in it’s own inexplicable beauty and power. From the time I was a child, they have captured my imagination. I’ve recently gotten into portraiture a bit, and I want to bring some of my experiences with trains to that arena. To capture the power of a person, the sadness, loneliness, omniscience, pride, love, & carefree spirit in a way that hasn’t been done before. I want people to look at themselves in a photograph I have taken, and see a side of themselves that they think no one else has ever seen. Dewitz Photography is all about capturing a moment in a way that has never been seen before, capturing a beauty that some never knew was even there.
