It is just a shot of the moon, nothing terribly interesting, but I'm pleased with it. Like any photographer, I photograph the moon from time to time, and find trouble getting a good exposure, especially if there is anything else in the frame (like a city or landscape, or passing clouds. I don't have to tell anyone here that photographing the moon can be tricky, especially if you live in a city with a lot of amient light during the evening hours and especially if you dont have a terribly long lens. A short lens means you have to crop the photo, and you loose resolution. Try to make a print from an image youve cropped back to 3 megapixels and it falls apart like paper mache. My friend Joi has a 1300mm lens that she let me borrow, and frankly I didnt know what the hell I was going to photograph with it. It isnt exactly a top of the line lens, the glass is pretty cheap, and youre stuck with one aperature at 1300mm (f/16). But it isnt like youre going to be shooting sports with a 1300mm lens unless you freeze time and you want to see if the pitcher has put any snot on the ball. I dont live in a high rise apartment building surrounded by other high rise apartment buildings so I cant use it to photograph my neighbors snorting coke off of a hookers backside. So, whats left. Well, the moon. The moon will do. I shot this just before sunset. At f/16 in the failing light with an ISO of 100, the shutter came in at one second. The lens is heavy, and while my tripod is quite stable, it still pushed down a bit, so it had to be stabilized as best I could. It seems to have worked as I dont see any motion blur or lens shake in the photo. I was hoping for some clouds, and I waited about for around 30 minutes, but mother nature wasnt having any of that, and while I waited, the moon was wandering off. Perhaps Ill try again when the weather is a little more cooperative.
