Welcome to the online galleries of Jim DeLutes Photography. Jim has been a photographer for over 40 years and has been mostly self-taught through experimentation (some would say a lot of mistakes!) to develop a style of his own.
In all of the galleries above the 'Digital Images' Button, the photographs were created with only the camera, lighting and imagination. No manipulations were done in the darkroom or the computer.
In 2005 Jim decided it was time to find out what all the fuss was about this newfangled thing called 'digital photography'. Buying his first digital camera and reading every book ever written about how to use Photoshop, Jim found that there was a huge part of his brain that had to be awakened if he was ever going to grasp these concepts. After about a year of wondering if indeed you can not teach an old dog new tricks, things began to make sense and the computer actually was fun. Experimenting with all of what is available with digital artistry has truly pushed the creative side of the brain and opened new worlds of image possibilities.
I hope you will enjoy viewing the galleries and seeing the transition from the world of film and lighting to the new world of pixels and lighting. Lighting is still the key ingredient to any image that will move and inspire the viewer.
