Now, this really strikes a chord with me, personally. Jim DeLillo is a photographer. Sure, nothing special about that – except he doesn’t shoot stuff we see here on Earth. He shoots for the stars! And his creations are not only brilliantly magnificent, but also highly detailed and time-consuming works of art! Yes, art. While the Hubble Telescope does this on a regular basis from outer space, Jim is doing it from right here, on Earth. But he needs our help – so he’s created a place on Rally.org – a crowdfunding website – where you can donate to help him achieve his dream of shooting the stars and keep on creating his wonderful work.
How can You Help?
Simply go to this link and donate! There’s really nothing more to it than that! The money he’s raising will be used to ‘buy’ telescope time. You need to remember that this is not a job where he goes and uses a telescope, snaps a picture of whatever he sees and then posts the picture online, calling it art. No, his job is far more complicated and more complex than that. And it shows in the final products which are absolutely amazing!
Each final photograph he publishes is actually a great number of shots, taken over the course of long periods of time with professional equipment that can handle the long exposure rates. Then, each photograph is taken and edited with powerful software so that it’ll end up looking great. So visit the above-mentioned Rally.org page and see exactly what this brilliant man can do. If you’re as much into astronomy as I am, you’ll surely find it in your heart to donate a few bucks to help this man achieve his dream and offer us more of his amazing, brilliant work!
