Follow up to my earlier post “Supermoon (almost)”. My attempt to capture the full 2011 “supermoon”. Taken with a Nikon D7000, 18-200mm lens, and a tripod. Settings were ISO 100, f/8.0, 1/320 second exposure.
Saturday is the night of the “supermoon” – a full moon when it is closest to earth. Has not happened for 18 years. (Thanks to Sean for the clarification!) I don’t know if we will have clear skies on Saturday so I decided to get a shot of the almost-supermoon tonight. This was done with my Nikon D7000 camera, a tripod, and an 18-200mm zoom lens. Settings were ISO 100, f/5.6, 1/125 second exposure.
An experiment in HDR (high dynamic range) photography. It was a drab, cloudy day today so I decided to shoot a set with a high ISO setting (3200) and play with the HDR software settings. This isn’t a standard HDR shot but it has a dreamy, painting-like quality that I liked.
This was a set of three shots merged with Photomatix Pro 4.0:
- ISO 3200, f/22, 1/800 second exposure
- ISO 3200, f/22, 1/200 second exposure
- ISO 3200, f/22, 1/50 second exposure
