Andromeda Galaxy -…

Taken Sept 23, 2014 at Cave Run Lake State Park near Morehead, Kentucky.

A color image this time of this Galaxy. I posted a BnW a number of months back. Finally did a color image using the same sub frames taken the night of the camera work at Cave Run Lake.

80mm f7.5, 3 element refactor. 4 of 4 minute exposures. 3 of 3 minute exposures. Making a 25 minute total exposure. 80mm, f/7.5 Russian Telescope. 600mm focal length. Sony DSL camera. a5000.  None guided.  The mount I used does not have a guiding port.  I was lucky and got great 4 minute and 3 minute exposures without guiding. This mount rocks. Older SP Vixen.

I wanted to shoot 16 to 20 exposures but the night closed in. Very cold and moisture started forming on the scope faster then I could remove it. So I think the color is not all that bad for the small number of sub exposures.

Darkroom work with Lightroom post stacking.

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.
