I went out and tried to capture some shots of this moon. I don’t own a tripod and knew a slow shutter speed would be impossible for me. I did try at a 2 second speed but I was getting ghosting from not being 100% still AND the moon is also moving, even though we can’t tell. I sat outside for about an hour playing with different settings. This was my favorite as I captured stars as well!
ISO 1600, f/9, 1/8000 (CRAZY!)
This one is taken by Britt Anderson with her D300 and a 70-300mm.
ISO 200, f 5.6, 1/2 second
This one is taken by Kim Hill with a Canon 1Ds Mark II using her 70-200L at 200 MM on a tripod
ISO 50, f/7.1, 1/100
And this photo was taken by Sharon Gartrell with her 100MM
ISO 6400, f/11, 1/125
I love seeing the variety in settings. It goes to show there isn’t always just one way to accomplish a shot.
