This past weekend was the Summer Supermoon for 2013. I’ve never really tried taking pictures of the moon or any night photos for that matter on any setting other than full auto. But, I am trying to expand my skill set, so I did some research and found this post with what they feel are best settings to shoot the moon.
Because of the rather cloudy weather we had that night I had very short time windows for shooting in between rather long gaps of waiting here in Myrtle Beach, SC.
I turned the camera on full manual and set everything to their suggested settings and got the photo that is the lower one above. Then, just for fun I put the camera on no flash mode and just shot one on manual focus to see what would happen. It gave some pretty cool effects which you can see in the top photo.
Hopefully down the road I’ll get some more chances at these types of shots and be able to improve.
