Moon shots

Talk about anything related to photography...

Postby Emcam » Apr Tue 06, 2004 6:47 pm

Well last night was the full moon, I had to shoot around lots of trees (I live in a pretty wooded area) so I used a 70 - 300mm w/2X telex on my D100 for a big image. That all probably gave me f/11 and I tried shutter speeds from 1/500th to 1/90th. The 1/90th was a bit bright, but the rest were pretty usable. Thanks again for the advice.

I selected ISO 200. The longer exposures were a bit warm in color. could have been a forest fire anyway I cooled it down in photoshop.

Hi Emcam,
I know this post is kind of old but I haven't seen anything posted from you indicating you had success.

Here is a photo of the moon I shot not to long ago using the Canon 75-300mm F.5.6 with IS.

I used a tripod of course and these are the settings I used.

Shutter : 1/180

Aperture : F 9.5

ISO : 200

Focal length : 300mm

The one thing I messed up on that I didn't catch until I read the Exif Info was the White Balance was set to Daylight but I still caught a nice image.


Hope this helps.

Randy

I meant to add that the image is not inhanced in anyway with Photoshop what you see is what the camera captured. I also forgot to mention the Camera I used was a Canon 10D.
