Photography: 2014 super-moon
I took some shots of the super-moon at the weekend. I managed to get some detail, even though it was very bright. I used my Nikon D3200 with a 55 – 300mm lens and tried to hold it as still as possible, shooting out of the window.
It was very bright and most people got shots that looked something like this. You can get a better shot by choosing shutter speed priority or a fast speed like sports so the light is reduced. Go for the largest size and best quality too, then you can crop the picture in editing to bring the moon closer. I like the way the moon lights up the clouds in this shot though.
You can make the shots more interesting in editing. Some cloud makes for a better shot.
A little cloud makes this picture better. I made the shutter speed slower. That makes the moon brighter and shows the cloud. Try to keep the camera still while taking the shot or the moon will appear oval rather than round.
