Go Check Out the Northern Wisconsin State Fair. It Will Be Fun.

July 9, 2013 Travis Dewitz

The Northern Wisconsin State Fair starts tomorrow, Wednesday July, 10th. The fair has a lot to offer from the huge carnival midway to livestock judging. The carnival offers a huge assortment of rides and games much larger than most carnivals you can find throughout the summer in Wisconsin. Of course you have the fair food vendors selling those  famous mini donuts , cheese curds, along with a large menu of other options to fulfill your deep-fried fair food fix. There will be judging for most of the animals to come besides the poultry class which was judged today.  I included a few portraits from today as the animals were being brought in and their stalls readied. This portion of the fair is very family driven with amazing work ethic from the everyone involved from the youngest to oldest. Was a lot of fun to watch everyone get their animals ready for judging. Some of the chickens and roosters had the most amazing feather patterns and colors.

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.
