Hi all 😃
This morning sees the last full moon of 2020, so I thought I’d have yet another go at capturing it. Up until today, all my shots of the moon were over-exposed & subject to the dreaded camera shake (even when using a tripod). My awesome wife found a video on YouTube by Paul Farris at Photo Genius.
I knew what was going wrong with previous shots, and had mostly got the issues sorted, but no matter how hard I tried, couldn’t get rid of camera shake (every time I pressed the shutter release, there was shake 😩). Apparently the trick is as simple as using the timer on the camera 🤔 Having watched the video, I set up & headed into the back garden at about 5am, pitch black & a chilly -3℃. I say pitch black, apart from the moon obviously 😂
Some of the shots were over exposed & lacked definition.
Some were under exposed but with good definition.
…and finally, I think I manged to hit the sweet spot 🎉 with good definition & exposure level 😃 with a shutter speed of 1/60 s 🤘
