Feature 5 | Selection of Five Images From my Latest Stoic Pride Series

This Feature 5 post is of Danika. Danika is from northeastern Wisconsin and volunteered to be apart of my Stoic Pride Photography Series. I have displayed her photos many times promoting my Native American project but wanted to show something different from her session. I decided to showcase these 5 images in black and white to show you the beauty within the image without the wonderful color of her bright orange fancy shawl and the golden sunset rays that were captured that day. I hope you enjoy these images.

Environmental Portraiture allows me to connect my genuine curiosity of my subject into a visual timeless story through the creation of their  portrait. Working with the naivety and quiet beauty of people fascinates me as I engage in the essence of who they are and their true sense of identity. I photograph the emotion and personality in their everyday being through deliberate details and natural flair. My yearning is to naturally engage you doing what you love and the essence of who you really are.

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.
