October 8th 2014 Total Luna eclipse. Like everyone else, I decided to take some pictures of the moon whilst it was in the shadow, causing it to appear red.
The image looked fine, and when I went downstairs to download the files, the poster that I had been printing was still on my desktop. Our new book Launceston a sense of Place has the iconic Launceston Post office clock tower on the cover and I decided to have a bit of a play on photoshop to see if I could make the picture of the moon a bit more interesting. The resulting image seemed to gather a lot of attention and praise, so we have released a web special print for anyone who would like to own their own copy of the image.
The print is available for a limited time as a 400X580 mm colour print with a 90mm white border, ready for framing. It has been signed, stamped and titled "Blood Moon, Launceston 8th October 2014"

Life has become so busy that very few photographs are being made at home any more, especially if you discount the images being made for Facebook and other such web communities. This is the moment when they are perched ready to fly off into their own lives. University or work is just around the corner, and it won’t be long before they are moving out. Whether it is just around the corner or to the other side of the country, now is the time to capture a family portrait and to stop time still, if only for just a moment.
