Categories Archives BloggingMoon PhotographyTwo photos of the moon at various phases. Post author By Kristi Hines Post date October 16, 2008 25 Comments on Moon Photography I love looking at the moon in its various phases. Here are two shots from this month. On a side note, I recorded this video last year of the full moon rising, with some creepy Halloween music.

Both pictures are beautiful !How much was your exposure time ?Jaffers last blog post..Poverty’s vicious face – As mirrored in India@Jaffer: Thanks! To be honest, I don’t remember. I was experimenting with different exposure times with a series of photos. The full moon didn’t turn out as well as the half one because I was in a different location with a lot more city lighting.The picture of the dark moon is freaky. If it wasn’t illuminated, how did you know it was there?Mitchs last blog post..Blog Action Day Tomorrow@Mitch: Makes you wonder about what could be easily hiding in our night skies overlooking all of us. It appears darker than the half moon because of my location having more city lights though.Hi Kristi – these shots of the moon are amazing (the video is neat too). You must have an amazing lens or camera to take the moon like that. I tried this past weekend and even though our camera is pretty good, it just turned out like a big white dot.Evitas last blog post..Autumn’s GiftsWhat serendipity. I was out in my backyard last night photographing the moon. See my flickr page http://flickr.com/photos/jaycee/I tried to photograph a lunar eclipse a few months back, and got blobby yellow shapes. Not even close to the beautiful craters and shadow you see in the photos above (esp. the first!). Nice job!Jess Sanderss last blog post..Series: Giants of Social Media: FacebookWow, both pics are spectacular. I love space.Texas Wanderers last blog post..Giant Pigs?Your photos are incredible. Tonight, when I went to pick up a child at a horse farm, along a dark and winding rural road, we saw a heavy cream Harvest Moon hanging just above bare trees. I kept expecting to see a Headless Horseman gallop on by.Unfortunately, I’ve had years of absolutely no success taking pictures of beautiful moonscapes. How I wish I had your skill and talent!Sandra Foyts last blog post..When Your Child Enters the Scary Halloween YearsI love watching the moon too. You’ve got an amazing gift for capturing the presence of grandmama moon with your camera. And this was a special full moon month for me, as its my birthday coming up, and I think that your CommentLuv module may just pick up my blog post on the full moon energies 🙂NiceHaroun Kolas last blog post..Aries Full Moon in Libra – 14, 15 October 2008Wow, I was just talking with my children about the moon and space. They love it. We think it is really beautiful.I like to take pictures of the sky, moon, and stars as well. I don’t have a decent camera, which explains why my pictures keep turning out so crappy. LOL!Thanks for sharing and I will be checking you out a little more. Got you on my Reader now!Freddies last blog post..Blog Action Day 08: Poverty@Evita: Thanks! I use a Fuji S5100 with a 3x telephoto lens. It only takes 4MP photos, but is still my best SLR camera. The telephoto lens is what makes the difference, that and the manual settings option vs. auto.@Jen: I like night lights. Sometimes I wish I could capture the aura of the sky with the moon, but I haven’t gotten to do that yet. 🙂@Sandra: Thanks. I love the harvest moon. I wish I had captured it a few years ago when it was bright orange and huge on the horizon.@Haroun: Happy upcoming birthday! 🙂@Freddy: Thanks for subscribing. It has taken me a few years of practicing moon shots before I got them to this point, and I still have a ways to go before knowing all the tricks of capturing it perfectly. My half moon shot was the closest so far.Wonderful!Vs last blog post..Congratulations to Paul Krugmangreat images of moon and nice wonderful blogWell Kristi, Moon always has its influence upon Human Being either physically or emotionally so nice shoots indeed for sure.Hichams last blog post..Back to the Future!Praise Allah!
