Window frames add rustic touch to Doskoch photos

Darlene Doskoch goes beyond capturing the perfect image in a still; she places them in a window.

Darlene Doskoch goes beyond capturing the perfect image in a still; she places them in a window.

Doskoch, whose work was also featured in last year’s Art Walk, has been “playing around” with photography for a couple of years.

“But last year I really got involved in it with encouragement from my husband, and he was getting a lot of compliments on the work I had in his office,” she says.

“He told me, ‘you should really think about opening your own businesses or trying to sell some of your stuff.’ I just told him, ‘yeah, I don’t want to frame it like everybody else frames it, you know.’ I wanted it to be something different.”

He then suggested she frame her pictures in windows, which garnered agreement from Doskoch.

But finding the perfect windows to fit the right picture created another issue.

“I wanted old ones,” she says, adding that she keeps all of the elements of a window, including its hinges, rope, handles and fasteners. “I love that part. Sometimes it can be difficult because it’s not just about taking the pictures.”

She says she can take all kinds of photos but not have one that will look good in a specific window.

“It’s kind of fun, too,” she adds. “When you are taking pictures you have a specific window in mind that it’s going to look good in. I think it’s neat. I really like it.”

Doskoch, who is self-taught in photography, says she shoots whatever suits her: anything from landscapes and flowers to horses and trains.

She says she received a lot of positive feedback in last year’s Art Walk, which encouraged her to create her own business.

Her work can be viewed on facebook under rusticwindowphotography, and, of course, at Lake City Glass during the Art Walk that wraps up Sept. 8.
