As a fine art photographer, Dinah Satterwhite feels that a great photo has to start with just one thing: the ability to stop someone in their tracks. To catch their breath, and hold them timeless in it’s grasp. To be interesting, even from a distance. To tell a story.
Dinah strives to create great photos that express her passion for life. Dinah likes them to stand out in a crowd, and share a special light, emotion, color, detail, space, texture, or composition. And yes, each one tells a story.
Living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, Dinah loves to capture vivid color photos and print them on canvas and metal so they pick up the crisp details and abundant colors found in nature. With a background in marketing management, advertising, and graphic design, Dinah is lucky to have a keen “eye” for layout and balance — even if she chooses to overlook them in favor of a special composition.
Dinah’s series “Into the Light” involves painting with the camera to capture light in a somewhat surreal and very imaginative, abstract way. She combines manual camera settings, motion, and natural light to depict a sense of graceful motion. The final image often resembles an acrylic painting.
Satterwhite is a resident of Bainbridge Island, Washington, with work in regional galleries and gift shops. She does commission work for individuals and magazine work. Her website showcases a variety of images, and offers many items for sale.
