Moon Love

May we never stop looking to the moon in marvel and appreciation. I find myself catching my breath when I see her at the moment, a little spark of joy, bright in the sky.

Always there, always here.

The supermoon, Pink Moon, April 7th 2020.

Throughout this month I – along with many others – am taking part in NanoPoblano, the Internet’s least-official November blog challenge. Click here to see the full list of Cheer Peppers.

    Great moon photos! I’m always super amazed at people who can manage photos of this quality of the moon. Mine always come out looking like a flashlight in the distance.

      Thank you, it was fun trying to capture the moon that night. It did take quite a lot of fiddling around the the camera settings to get it right, but was worth it in the end. Most of mine are the same, don’t worry, especially when I attempt with my phone camera, they’re always the disappointing ones – but when I remember/have the energy to get the big camera out, that’s when the magic happens. ✨

        I’m curious what settings you use. Maybe I can get proper moon pics with my not-a-phone-camera with some guidance. And a tripod.

        Always happy to talk photography! I used my DSLR for these, with my zoom lens and rested the camera steadily on the window to stop the shake. I also googled to refresh on the right settings to use, it normally involves fiddling a lot with the F-stop, ISO and shutter speed. What type of camera do you use? A tripod is a huge bonus too!

        I ditched the swappable-lens dslr a few years ago, because I found that I was not ever taking it anywhere. I replaced it with the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II- it will do all the settings of a dslr, including shooting in raw, just without the ability to change lenses. I’ve managed a few decent shots with it during one of the recent eclipses, by lying on my back in a dark parking lot, but I think I would be able to do much better if I learned how to use it better. And getting a tripod. 😀
