Hello! I'm a long-time fan of astrophotography. I took my first photo of the Moon in 1975 as a twelve-year-old. For over 25 years, I photographed the landscape with 4x5 and 8x10 large format cameras. I've been shooting nightscapes since 2014. Also, I love to create time lapses. You can see my photos at www.keyesphoto.com
