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
An experiment in HDR (high dynamic range) photography. HDR can let you capture some details that would be difficult to get with a single shot. This is a combination of 3 shots of the moon with an 18-200 zoom lens, f/9, exposures of 1/250 second, 1/500 second, and 1/1250 second. Shots were merged with Photomatix Pro 4.0.

Some shots from around the ranch that amused me.
I don’t think he was in the mood to be photographed…
“What’s going on out there???”
Playing “hide and go seek” with the horses can be fun, but it isn’t very challenging…
They looked very guilty when I walked by. I think they’re plotting something.
“I’m ready for my close-up….”
“It’s cold and cloudy and I’m bored….”
“On my back – still bored…”
May not look like much, but I’m very happy to get this much detail without a telescope. Used my Nikon D60, a tripod, and an 18-200mm zoom lens. A 0.5 second exposure at f/5.6.
