Astro Boy    -  Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

Had so much fun making this!!! Tried the opposite of some of my usual tricks.

The Vignette is lighter rather than darker, it’s almost a b&W but not quite.

Just love the look and feel of the whole thing!

Star light, star bright,

First star I see tonight,

I wish I may, I wish I might,

Have the wish I wish tonight.

I wished this more than once when I was a wee lad. I recently had my 7 year anniversary with my husband!

Wishes do come true!

Hope your wishes do too : )

Heaven – gay art male art by Michael Taggart Photography

Contemplative Handsome Man

Heaven   -  Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

I grew up Pentecostal – and I’m gay – so I’m totally kicked out of heaven. Bar the door – throw away the key – get the hell out!It was a rough time coming to terms with the way I grew up and the man I was becoming. I’d always had a close relationship with god and fortunately I realized one day that I still had that. The higher power in my life was still there and still loved me.

Over time I’ve ceased to think of heaven as some mystical place we get to when we die – but rather it is all around me all the time. I’m most aware of it in the quiet moments.
When my cat wakes me up with his snoring.
When Harold falls asleep on the couch and I cover him up with the blanket and put away his glasses
When I watch a great movie or read a great book that makes me think about life a new way.
And always always always when I’m grateful.

So that is what I wanted to capture with this picture. A heavenly guy having a quiet heavenly moment.

I hope you have a bit of heaven in your life today.

: ) Michael

Powerful Male Body

Power/Velocity   -  Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

I was working with Matt on focusing the shot on just one part of the body.What I discovered is most of the body doesn’t have enough perspective to make a tight crop work. We did come up with this shot, though.

I really like the look of power and velocity that comes across in his chest and back.

This is ‘the picture’ of the shoot. If I had only gotten this one and nothing else, I would have been happy.
