shooting the moon
forever i've taken photos of the great big lovely moons that have floated over my life.
generally they've come out like a small white dot blazing away in a pitch black sky.
until this week.
in my blog feeds, i found instructions for shooting the moon.
AND IT WORKED!!
would have worked better if i'd had a different lens, but LOOK AT MY PHOTO.
you can see things on the surface of the moon.
details. maybe even the sea of tranquility.
i followed the link inside a post on what it means to be an everyday photographer.
and i took my trusty old 40D, not the new camera, set the settings and made tracks to the street in front of my house and walked until i had a good angle on that full moon.
yay! i'm glad it's still exciting to learn something new.
