Print of the Month: Stars My Destination

Our February, 2011 offering was Stars My Destination. This dramatic and colorful image is presented on 22" X 17" paper. The actual image size is somewhat smaller, allowing for my hand signature and overmatting when you frame the piece.

Stars My Destination is made by hand and giclee printed with tender, loving care in my studio on 325 gsm Epson archival Exhibition Fiber paper. This popular image will appear in Creative Lighting (Wiley).

The price for this archival print is $450.00. This includes careful, custom packing and insured Fedex ground shipping within the United States. (For orders outside of the United States, please contact me for shipping costs.)

Purchase Stars My Destination by Harold Davis
Stars My Destination is a stacked composite of 27 exposures, each capture shot at 4 minutes, f/2.8, and ISO 400. I used my 10.5mm digital fisheye, pointed the camera north up Owens Valley from a location in the Alabama Hills below Mt Whitney in eastern California. Total exposure time was about 108 minutes, or one hour and 48 minutes. The formation to the right of the image is called "The Three Nuns." You can learn more about the image in my Stars My Destination blog story.

We make our prints with a great deal of care with the best archival standards. Even the ink I use to sign our prints is acid free.

I'm not comparing myself with the great masters of photography, but consider that during the many years that Edward Weston and Ansel Adams were active, you could have bought one of their prints for a few hundred dollars (at most). These prints sell for tens of thousands of dollars at auction today.

If you have any questions about this print—or anything photographic for that matter—please email me (harold [at] or give me a call at 510.528.9977.
