Description Early morning fog is seen on the Snake River at OxBow in Grand Teton National Park. I had set up to photograph the traditional view toward Mount Moran but everything seemed to be happening from a photographic perspective toward the east. Lesson I learned...Don't get 'Pigeon holed' into one shot. Keep your eyes opened and look around while you're waiting. You never know what you will see.
James Neeley, Idaho Member Since December 2006 Artist Statement Photography has been a love of James Neeley's for 40 years. With an eye for form and composition, and a passion for beautiful landscapes, James is at home behind the eyepiece of a camera. HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography has invigorated his goal of capturing in an image, the beauty and feeling in a scene for those who view his work.
"Form and beauty come together with detail, color, lighting, and contrast in a dramatic way with HDR photography."
A Radiologist by profession, James spends each day examining hundreds of medical images of patients. He feels that this work develops a critical eye for patterns and detail and helps as he views his surroundings in an artistic search for the perfect picture.
