|Well I just got back from a Bryan Adams concert (really good by the way) - and saw the big full "Supermoon" in a clear sky at around 12:30AM midnight May 6'th. I knew that while I was at the concert, I missed the nice opportunity of the moon being low to the horizon where I could include some interesting content and show its size - and so wasn't going to bother taking a shot - - - after all it is just another full moon shot when aiming up in the sky.
But I did end up grabbing my E-3 and 75-300mm lens and popped out into the backyard to take a shot. Couldn't pass it up. Sure enough - it was like all the other times. Exposure was dead accurate at the SUNNY 16 rule and I set my camera at f6.3 @ 1/1000'th at 200ISO (BTW - Sunny16 for midday sun using 200ISO is f16@1/200'th). From experience I also set my White Balance to a custom 4200K. With the lens fully extended to an equivalent of 600mm, the moon was still small in the frame - but got me this 100% crop of 750px by 750px. Might look the same as the others - - - but at least I label the image "Supermoon 2012".
One of the disadvantages of shooting a full moon over one where the sun is hitting it from an angle (and so is only partially lit) - - - is that the craters and surfaces of the moon aren't defined by shadows, and so don't pop out. It is afterall FLAT LIGHTING - much like we'd use on a model to hide imperfections on the face. But we always want to shoot a full moon - right?
Be sure to post your shots as replies if you like.
