Desert Moon

April 3rd, 2007

D20 6072 Desert Moon

I noticed that a full moon was about to occur and checked the charts to see when would be best to shoot it. Found the right day, but couldn’t find just the right place. Where we are the moon came up behind some mountains, which meant it was higher in the sky than I would have liked before it appeared. But we set up and were able to get some photos. I think this one works fairly well.
The trick with moonrise photos is to shoot on the one day each month when the moon rises before the sun sets. The exposure for the moon is the exposure for anything in direct sunlight…the moon is lit by direct sunlight. In order to have a good exposure for any foreground subjects that you want to include in the photo, those subjects should also be lit by direct sunlight…or indirect sunlight, but still fairly bright, as in this case.
