Night Sky

Filed under: Fine Art,Fine Art Portfolio,Landscape Photography — John Siskin @ 2:10 pm

Since I’ve been out here in New Mexico I’ve done a lot of sky images. It’s big sky country! I will be posting other groups, but I wanted to start with some night sky images. I’ll leave the astrophotography details to those more interested in them. I’ve used a couple of lenses, each has it’s interesting features for this work: an old Nikkor 35mm f2.8 Perspective Control lens, a Rokinon 14mm f2.8 and a Soviet era 16mm Fisheye Lens.  Regardless most of the images were made with my Nikon digital cameras: the D800 and the D850. Anyway, I really enjoy this work, and I hope you do also. Thanks so much for your continued attention!

As you might imagine I’d prefer that these pages don’t get filled with a great deal of text. If you’d like information about a specific image, please e-mail me at and I’ll let you know what I know. Of course, if you have specific requests about an image you’d like to purchase please use the same address. If you’d like to go ahead and purchase an image, please use the Paypal link below and give me the browser link to the image and your shipping address.

I am also trying a couple of things that will give people an opportunity to support this work. While I am fortunate to have enough money to continue to do this work, some things are pretty expensive. For instance 11×14 film is hard to get and costs about $300 for just 25 shots and a 120 roll of Ilford Delta 400 is close to $9.

I did a large show when I was still in Indianapolis called Courting Chaos. The link will take you to the pages which describe the work and its evolution. These images are, well, chaotic and many of them are nudes. I hope you’ll find it interesting.
