I’ve always found the moon an interesting subject to photograph. It can show up any time of the day or night, low on the horizon or high up in the sky. It’s a challenge to photograph with my point-and-shoot camera. I like its 12xoptical zoom but it can have a hard time focusing on the subject. And if I want to capture something else in front of it, I rarely get both subjects, near and far, with the right lighting or focus. So I use Photoshop to create the photo I really want by combining the two photos together: the one with the moon lighted and focused on just right, and the other with the foreground under the right light and sharp content.
Here are a few photos that were created this way. Remember you can click on each photo to see it in a larger format.
Unfortunately my camera is a little grainy in very low light but I still like how these two photos came out.
Somewhere the moon can be quite visible in the middle of the day if the light is just right. Here are a few photos capturing this phenomenon.
Really lovely images. Its not easy capturing such a large moon.
Thank you! My camera has a 12x optical zoom so unless the moon looks pretty big already, it doesn’t take a lot of room on the frame.
