Setting Moon

January 06, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Some of you may not believe this, but I have been failing at moon photography for some time. Not as easy as it sounds. Automatic settings on your camera will not get it done. I shot this photo early yesterday morning after Lori said she wanted to see the moon picture. The ones from Monday morning were not good. So I woke up early and went out on the deck. Camera was on the tripod with 150-600 mm lens, with camera on manual. Manual focus and exposure at 1/200 second, f/10, and iso 200. I did try some photos with the moon caught in the tree but again there is an enormous difference in how far away the moon is and how close the tree is. I'm thinking I could put two photos together to show what I experienced the other morning. Ah, for another time. I'm just pleased I finally got the exposure right, or nearly so. One thing at a time...
