Staring at the supermoon

The supermoon rises over Lake Winnebago full of mystery and beauty! 

Lighting, composition, compression, exposure – all part of the tool kit for any photographer.  The moon is one of the hardest things to photograph properly.  Never had a camera that could expose the moon properly – the contrast between the bright moon and the dark sky always causes an over exposure.  The moon is really bright and you have to adjust the exposure downward much more than you would expect!

Super Moon Rise

Supermoon on The RiseThe Super moon was on July 13th but clouds blocked. I shot this on July 14th so still pretty nice. Just working with my new camera slider rail. The hardest part is getting the exposure set so the video is not too light in the beginning and not too dark at the end.
