About the Image(s)

I had just recently gotten a new, to me, camera and was experimenting by shooting at the moon. I had some problems and reset the camera to the defaults. I started just flipping through the settings and was surprised by how well this turned out. Lately I have seen a lot of instructions on how to shoot the moon. I broke a lot of the rules and this is the one that really impressed me.

Canon 5D Mark III, 100-400mm @400mm, ISO 3,200, f/6.3, 1/8000 sec. Shot handheld, in RAW and cropped, handheld.

I took exactly the same image and it was put into the local paper. I think yours is slightly sharper focus. I took your image and put it into levels in PS and darkened the "seas" of the moon.   Posted: 05/03/2021 18:14:45

I think this is one of the best moon shots I've ever seen! Fantastic!   Posted: 05/08/2021 08:16:17
