Moon Photography

I have today a somewhat dramatic ‘before’ ‘after’ thing for y’all to see. I went out tonight and took some photos of the moon. First, I tried using my own (faint) knowledge of manual mode, and this is what came out:

And this photo looked a LOT worse before I edited it…and it’s still overexposed!

Then I decided it was too much for me to attempt what I had no clue about. So…I did some research and found this handy little canon discussion form on moon photography.

And after applying what I read…

…this is the result!

I was SO pleased with this photo. I couldn’t believe with just a little tweaking of the settings I had such a different result. And the best part? I was able to use ISO 100! Yay!

What do you think of all this?

  1. That second moon picture is gorgeous! 😀 I need to learn how to do that. 😉


    1. Thanks, Natasha! I have a 300mm zoom lens which I used and I used the suggested settings (on the website I linked): F/11, ISO 100, Shutter Speed 1/100. I was so happy that it ended up so clear! It was actually really easy when I finally got the correct settings 😉 .


Comments make my day, but please refrain from swearing, profanity, and be respectful! <3
