    Re: My art

    Thank you for your compliments. I always wish I had become a photographer.

    mrd: Those were good! You can't imagine how many moon shots I've tried. Keep trying!

    Try a shot at 1/500, 1/125, and 1/1000 also.
    Also, you won't see more than an itty bitty dot of light anywayif you don't have a pretty good zoom on your camera. Post to let us see what you have!
    The full moon is basically a daylight shot, odd as that may sound. It is illuminated by the same light source (the sun) as the earth, and has a similar albedo (reflectivity.) I find that the proper exposure for the full moon is f/16 at 1/ASA (or ISO, which I think is about the same thing). queenb is right about the tiny size of the moon. It looks HUGE on the horizon, but that is an optical illusion. The subtended angle is approximately 1/4 that of your index finger held at arm's length.

    Re: My art

    Newfherder, I just noticed in that quote I stated 1/2500 second
    I meant 1/250.
    Anyway, thanks for clarifying--that's what I was getting at. I suggested bracketing to avoid one more step for someone to mess with. It sounds counterintuitive but a long exposure is the opposite of what's needed.
    Actually, most pictures you do see with this great big moon are (if they are 35mm) double exposures, or if it's digital usually the moon is on one layer, and the landscape is another, so you can make the moon big, and in sharp detail, but overexpose the foreround shot so there is some detail there.

    Got a headache yet?

    Here's a moon picture I made-- I was trying to take a picture of the moon and clouds withthis really crappy (not even a whole megapixel) digital camera that came in my old Stone Age camcorder. I edited the photo and while it doesn't have a lot of detail on the moon, I think it's kind of interesting. I was trying for a kind of painterly effect so as to use the graininess and blur of that junk camera.

    fredlun, I like the first one best too--it's photo contest worthy.
    Misskitty, I want to visit there! Nice shot of the deer, too!
