Moon, How to Shoot?

This is an article that every time I think of writing, remember my older brother Vladimir, who is geographer and so studied astronomy in College (not to be confused with astrology!) and I think that influenced the fact he’s a fanatic about photographing the moon.

In my photography workshops, whenever I talk about the cameras bridges, here I comment that he lives apart from my professional machine wave makes no photo of the moon as the superzoom him!

In fact I don’t use lenses I my professional work with this zoom range, so I’m going to pass technical tips on how to make photos of sensational Moon, taking into account the professional techniques added to essential techniques that he also uses to make his pictures!

In fact, almost all the pictures in this article were made by him.

Here we go:

Nowadays, with the advanced technology available in cell phones, it is possible to know with some advance the occurrence of celestial events, usually of rare beauty and to draw attention of professionals and amateurs. Solar and lunar eclipses, comets, planetary alignment or a supermoon are some of the events which attract the lovers of heaven. Imagine if schedule to watch live the passage of Venus behind the Moon and register in this rare moment photos?

Even being in love with the Moon, sometimes we want to record the moment, but the picture goes out completely different than expected. Appears only a white speck in the vastness of the sky black. I believe that you have identified with the lines above. It is quite common that happens and therefore will give tips for your photos they’re cooked, without spending money on expensive equipment. Check out!

Prefer DSLR cameras, which are more advanced than the common digital

The big difference is that they feature the direct reflection of what is seen by the lens. That doesn’t happen with common cameras (SLR), where the only light passes through the lens, without thinking. With the DSLR cameras, the image quality is higher, especially in low-light environments. As we wish to photograph the Moon, if you have a camera like that, ever comes out ahead as the goal, since you will be able to make adjusting until you get the result you want, like the example below:

You want to make a picture with your digital camera?

Common digital cameras from A2zcamerablog, also calls for compact, or SLR, as mentioned above, are the most popular, second only to the cameras embedded in cell phones. Can – do a good picture with cameras of this type, but you will have to make some adjustments to the zoom. Come on? The adjustment should be made in both the digital and optical zoom. It is necessary to make this process in both zooms to facilitate focus and photometry for your camera, reminding us that the more you zoom, the more you need to be stabilized camera.

Photometry is the measurement of light into the camera, to know what amount of light that enters it for image capture, if you want to better understand photometry, you can read here on the site an article explaining these concepts in detail, the “Photometry and photography” .

Whenever possible, use a tripod.

The tripods make it easy to capture images and not tire so the photographer. If you do not have one, Improv: fix your camera into a tree branch, window, any object that is firm and flat. When you’re with the camera on the tripod, adjust the focus and activate the timer of your camera to shoot ten seconds. It is very recommended that you make the shot clocked instead of automatic. So, run-less risk of vibrations and motion blur in your photo, when you press the shutter button, as in the example below:

You prefer to do the photos without a tripod and adjustable timer.

To obtain a firm image, you can support your arms in a window and holding your breath during the seconds of capture of the image. With that, his movements are more restricted and the image quality is similar, but not exactly equal, the tripod will always be more secure.The timer can be between 2 and ten seconds!

If you can make manual adjustments in your camera, follow the recommendations below:

Configure the diaphragm opening initially to f/8. In this way, you set the amount of light that enters the camera. The more light available, less needs to be open, that is, the more it will have to be that number (f11, f22, etc.). The lower this number, the smaller the depth of field and fewer elements will be in focus.

Adjust the shutter speed to high, between 1/100 and 1/1000, so you control the time of light exposure. If you use lower speeds, you run the risk of photo out blurry, especially if you are not using a tripod.High speed also favors the motion capture of the Moon, because she will not stop during the making of the picture.

ISO control for sensitivity. The smaller, the better the image. If possible, keep the ISO 400 and tops start at 100. With this, you will have good sharpness of the image. The higher the ISO, the more the image sensor has light sensitivity and, consequently, can – if you take pictures in low light. But, in this case, your photos will have less sharpness and more noise.

Turn off the flash of your camera

What do you mean? To photograph the Moon must – if you turn off the flash? Yes, although the lighting be low, no flash in the world is capable of capturing the distance from where we are to the moon.The flashes usually capture maximum distances to 200 meters. So, in this case, the flash will only diminish the quality of the image, generating unnecessary flashes next to the lens. And the Moon, mainly in your full phase, reflects a lot of light, light natural environments. This whole would flash lighting.

White balance adjustment

Control the white balance to daylight, even if your photo is. So, the color of the light will be as natural as possible. To make your brightest Moon, adjust the picture to black and white. Will be beautiful!

Is there a best time to photography?

Yes, time will make a difference in your photo. Give preference to pictures as soon as the Moon rises, because when she’s on the horizon, it’s created an optical illusion and the moon will seem bigger.

I need to insert the Moon in some context.

I personally always find more interesting photos of the moon when inserted in a landscape context, after all, as I often tell my brother, Moon NASA has a lot, but it’s pure pet peeve of sister, because I love his pictures. But in this case is to seek elements to compose the table who can pass the idea of the place where the photo was made, which can make it unique. I used these two examples because they have different difficulties, the first made in a desert at dusk, i.e. the lighting has almost no interference and the second with the city in the background, the more lights to be fotometradas.

Vladimir, for example, do you get greater detail allowed by the equipment. So I usually buy cameras with advanced optical zoom to achieve this result down there:

But once when he surrenders the landscape:

I can shoot the moon with cell phone?

Virtually all of us have a built-in camera on my cell phone. Not to miss that special moment, you can whip out your cell phone and make some images. In this case, a resource is to take advantage of the landscape around. Make sure not to appear on your posts or buildings.

I used to do daily bike path aterro do flamengo to the Urca, round trip, and several times I saw amazing moons, but who knew at the time that my phone wouldn’t be able to do great things. Until the day that the phenomenon known as “Supermoon”, the phone was still the same, but I did what I could to make a record, in 3 photos with different frameworks in an attempt to get something reasonable …Not even at the foot of what could be done with a good camera and well configured, but my main tip is don’t stop trying! Till today I keep the sense of Rapture that the actual image caused me when I look at my photos.

And last but not least, Killer Tips of Web sites and applications that Vladimir suggested for those who really don’t want to miss any celestial event and have the best opportunities to do anyway that picture of the moon.

Well, having said all that, now it’s practice to have that unforgettable picture of the Moon!

Until next time!
