00-OurMoon-7-23-2015-SAM-3630-HDR-WP-Master by darkmoonphoto
First light. First time star light or moon light hits the optics of a telescope. New first time used.

First image made with this new optical tube or telescope. And it looks like this is going to be a great, great telescope for astronomical photography. 8inch f/5. The camera has not really be used ether although I have had the camera for over a year. I became ill and the camera has been lying in its box while I was in recovery. Finally mounted on a telescope. The reason I bought the camera. The mount which atop the telescope and camera ride is also new for me. Used but not use much at all by the former owner. This setup is looking like it will be my best astronomical photography setup. Strong but portable.

Our moon. First quarter. Nice clean image. It is made up from 6 exposures. A true HDR image. Take 7/23/2015

Abstract Art Photography. I think.

Or I do like it for unknown reasons.

It stared out with infrared. 3 layered differing exposures. HDR. Then playing in Lightroom them Photoshop I came out colorized as you see it.

I was introduced to Photography because of the astronomy I was learning to do as a teenager. Early teenager. 13/14 years old. One of the first images I took with a camera was of our moon.

Looking for models for this coming year - 2015 -

Hi all.

A little over a year ago my health went down hill. I have always had a breathing problem. COPD. My breathing problem worsened and finally cause me to come down with a bad heart problem. I spent a week last year in a hospital with this heart problem.

With a great heart doctor I have been on the recovery. After many test and medications and restructuring of my life style the heart doctor last we said I was stable enough  to start back doing some photography projects. Art Photography, my first love. Passion for Art.

Over a year not doing any Model Photo Shoots I would like to get my feet wet again do Modeling Shoots. Get started back with a camera.

So yes I need models.  Any models I have worked with in the past I for sure welcome you to get a hold of me.

Any model interested in Art Modeling or Art Photography please let me know. Let talk.

I have been a photographer for 55 years. For the large part when working with models I prefer alternatives models but am open to great glamour and full art modeling.

I retired some 12 years or more back and only shoot TFP. Art and money do not mix. I am trying to be about Art Interruptions and want to keep money out of my work. I do not sell any images I produce. I do images for the sake of Art only, not money.

Goth, Punk, Cosplay, Body painting, Candle interpretations, Black light, Retro, Horror, Ghost, Graveyard, Train track, D/s, Fairy and Fairy tails and on and on.

And have as much fun doing Art Photography as possible.   

I own two studios.  A small fully equipped photography and painting studio where I live in J-Town, Kentucky and a very old 4 story house in Middletown, Kentucky. Old house great for Goth, Punk, Ghost, Dark Themes. Also woods to shoot in.  Big old estate.

I love doing Street Shoots. Back Ally, Train Track, Church doorways, Graveyard you name it we can try it. Tunnels and on and on etc.

I have just short of 5000 images for anyone to look on deviantArt. “ “….. Or Google darkmoonphoto no spaces.. One word.

I am looking for models who are truly interested in Art Photography.  Not just glamour. Now if glamour is a part of an art image then yes we need to talk.

The above when I gets warmer. The cold is to heard on me with the health problems I have but we can start dialog about setting shoots up when the weather changes for the good.

Hope this is readable. Just ask if not.
