Steve Profile Shot

Welcome to Photography By Steve daPonte

The world around us is full of images that are dynamic and ever changing with time. Photography captures these little slices of time, moments that pass mostly unoticed and taken for granted in our daily lives. Every photograph a visual story of life and being alive in a glorious world of line, space, color and motion. 

Steve teaches digital photography capture and post processing techniques using  OnOne Software and Beta tests other post-processing software. He is currently an active board member and webmaster for the Lighthouse Camera Club. His images have been featured in several publications and have won awards in multiple photo contests. 

Prints can be purchased from my Fine Art America Site.

      • Sure doesn’t look like very much fun!! When I first drove by both of them were completely prone on the cold sidewalk. At least they still have a sense of humor. I may have already mentioned it with this photo, but when they saw me taking photos they asked me if I wanted to help them. I showed one of them the photos, but the LED screen on my point and shoot is small and I don’t think he really understood why I was taking pictures in the first place, lol!
        I’m glad you’re not in their shoes anymore. 🙂

  4. Thank you for liking my Chinese Sun Dial! You might as well color me envious on every single one of your photos! They are breathtaking. You have an incredible eye! All the pictures on my blog are mine, even the graphic or digital art ones. I am still just a student but I am having a blast learning and playing around with different techniques! I absolutely love your photos! There is a beautiful simplicity about them that just draws me in and then shows me so much more! Simply Stunning!


  5. Love this: “Capturing images of the world around me natural, manmade or purely accidental that many of us tend to forget or may even deny exists.” Great to be conscious of everything around us.
    Enjoying the photos, keep it up!
    From japan ^-^

    • Hi Robert,
      Thanks for stopping by 🙂
      I am enjoying your urbex photos. The area i live in does not have very much of this type of material the old buildings get torn down real quick around here.


      • Thanks – glad you are enjoying my “recreational trespassing” 🙂
        I have to do a bit of traveling for some of these shots – of course I started out local and have moved outwards – still these are shot mostly in the Northeastern US.

  9. Steve, I hadn’t seen any posts by you for a couple of weeks now. So I thought I would check to see if you had dropped out of site or what. After a little checking I found out, for some unknown reason, I wasn’t following you anymore. I never changed the setting so it had to be a glitch of WordPress or the internet in general. Glad to see your still around here and taking those great shots.


    • Hi Bob,
      That happened to me awhile back also. Some of the sites I followed dropped out and I had to refollow. Probably a wordpress glitch. Happy to see your still around as well. Thanks for your stopping by and your likes and comments.
