Light Hunter: Journal Entry #2
Date: January 23rd 2016
Location: Point Dume
Time: 5:17 pm

      Description: Artist dialog directly after the full moon rise on January 23rd 2016. Miscellaneous topics include: Shooting the wolf moon. Moon photography. "Letting dark be dark." This particular dialog relates to the first Episode of "12 Moons Over Paradise", which focuses on capturing an image of the Full Wolf Moon in Malibu Ca. It was recorded the moment I arrived back at the parking lot on cliffside drive on the night of January 23rd 2016.

12 Moons Over Paradise: Episode 1 "The Wolf Moon"

“I’ve been recording these personal dialog notes for years following most of my photographic adventures. These journal entries are unedited and unplanned and were never planned to be released. Please excuse the language at times. These are my own personal observations and ramblings regarding light and photography at particular moments in time, they are not considered fact and should not be treated as such. Quite frankly, some things I say are hit and miss and rather absurd, but I do seem to strike the nail head occasionally. I consider these notes simple stepping stones on my own personal journey as a photographer in the quest for the ultimate photograph. Thanks for listening; perhaps there is a hidden lesson to be learned from all these rambles. At the very least, it’s nice to share some of my trials and tribulations with other similar artists who may walk a common path. “ - mizzy pacheco
