The Moon

Have you ever tried to snap moon's picture? Here I give a simple tip to you all how to snap a moon picture properly.

If you are using compact digital camera or DSLR, try not to use 'Night Scene' or 'Night Mode'. If your camera does have manual setting on speed and aperture, try use the same setting as you snap a scene during noon time by using manual mode.

Below here is an example I took on moon by using ISO 100, 1/125 speed and F 8.0 with my camera setting. It will be an advantage if your camera has power zoom, my camera maximum zoom up to 504mm (18x) so I can get a bigger image of the moon.

Too bad my camera doesn't support the aperture up to F 11, if has, it will be more detail. The reason why we have to use high speed and low aperture to snap the moon, it is because moon light is reflected by sunlight, so it will be the same setting from our camera during daylight time.

So, are you going to try it out tonight? No worry or you can forget about the tripod as you're using the high speed shutter. Good Luck yah!
