Good evening! Just joined the forum. Amateur/newbie and even less experienced than that. Have an EOS80D. Rented Tamron SP 150-600 f/5-6.3 lens to photograph upcoming supermooon lunar eclipse. Took it for a spin today. No clouds in Houston. Great early evening to photograph the moon. Using automatic mode (P), I was able to get a great photo of the moon. In an effort to get a bit more artistic, I tried to frame the moon by shooting through tree branches. I kept the lens at infinity and played with some of the settings (iso, f stop, speed, etc). I've attached 3 images. My question relates to the following: in order for me to get the moon in focus, the sky is much darker than it truly was. So, what can I do differently to lighten up the sky? Next is, why do the branches look more in focus and dominate the photo moreso than the moon even though I am at infinity? Is it just that the branches are at infinity too (I was 50 feet or so from the tree shooting up at about a 60 degree angle)? Many thanks! Looking for tips to help with Wed.
