Sorry about the title, but that’s what I kept saying the whole time I was trying to get pickies tonight. So it sticks.

Not usually terribly successful with my moon shots, but I’ve been experimenting with setting this to there and that down to this (not much for technical speak, can you tell?) However, must say the following:
Specs: Fl 78mm, F4.5, Exp 1/25th, Sp ISO160
What strange specifications; I’d have thought they would be much more extreme. Hmmm.


moon, full moon

    just cant get good moon shots,can any body please tell me,im using a canon 450d with a tamron 18-270mm lens thank you,fazza,oh good shot anne!!!!

  • I’m finding less worry about the focal length and more on exposure, speed and aperture. If that makes sense. I used high contrast, high colour, and the timer while resting it against the passenger door of the car (no tripod sadly). But took half dozen acceptable shots tonight (until I heard growling in a nearby boxthorn and decided maybe it was time to get in the car and drive back to civilisation). This was taken at the top of Swans Rd. I tried some in Albert St with Grantleigh Dve lights, but just couldn’t get it quite right. Fun trying though.

  • PS I’ve just noticed how funny it is seeing people respond to strange photo titles. :)
