Mr. Moon

I made a pathetic attempt last week, when it was cold and snowing, to capture the moon behind some trees.  Then I showed Walt my picture options and he told me I could do better than that.

So... here I am, again, trying to capture Mr. Moon behind some trees, coincidently right in front of Walt's house, and I THINK I got a pretty good shot. After reading Barb Phillips post about capturing the moon, I wanted to see what I was capable of.  Although it didn't turn out nearly as cool as hers, I still liked it a lot.

No worries though... I start my photography class next Tuesday and my Nanna and PaPa are sending me their old SLR to learn with along with my Canon G11 so hopefully I will begin to surprise you all a little bit more :)

Goodnight lovers.  Goodnight Moon.

  1. Nicely done, moon shots are toughies. Here are a few moon tip. Remember that the moon is very bright just like the sun so try not to meter off that. Second tip use a tripod as the shutter speed will likely be too slow to hand hold. Third shoot in complete manual mode (Aperture, shutter speed and focus).
    Forth watch you ISO keep them under 800 if at possible.


Thank you for letting me know what you think!
