I have been experimenting taking pictures of the moon rising rather than the sun setting, although I actually took this one as the sun was setting. I’ll post the matching sunset next…
This morning I woke up to see the moon still in the sky. I have tried a few times to capture the moon, but it usually comes out as a blurred spotlight in the sky. The best time to take the moon is when the sky is a little lighter. Taking the moon against a black night sky confuses my poor camera, and it just can’t balance the whites.
You will also need a camera that you can adjust the shutter speed to get the most detail from the moon. Other than that, a tripod and an enormous zoom lens would be good ideas too.
For those who missed the big event of the weekend, or who need a little cheering up this Monday, check out the Whose Blog is it Anyway? from the guest bloggers at Don Charisma’s blog. There are some great comic writings on there and all of them are fantastic pieces of improv.
If you want to read my second attempt at improvised writing, the read my post titled Why isn’t 11 pronounced onety-one?
Enjoy, and have a great week everyone.
