Photography - HOW TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THE MOON

TONIGHT is the largest full moon of 2013!!! SUPERMOON!



Here is what I used-

 Tripod is a must. I found it really difficult to get a good photo 
without it but I've included some setting to try if you do not own one.

Zoom lens - I used a 75mm-300mm

Camera settings on this photo:
 ISO 400, f11 and shutter 1/125



I like to stay around these settings but you can play with combinations.
ISO 200-400, Aperture f11, Shutter speed 1/125 -1/200

If you do not have a tripod  I would try to prop the camera somewhere...on the ground with books or on the porch before trying "handheld." If this is your only option try these settings. You will need to make the ISO much higher along with the shutter speed.

ISO 800-1000 , Aperture f8, Shutter speed 1/1000-1/1500

Again, you will need to play around with the combinations.  

HAVE FUN! :)


Thank you for stopping by!
