New Moon Setting

Posted by Avital Pinnick on April 15, 2010

It’s not as good a shot as I’d hoped to get but I did learn a lot about how to approach this kind of shot in the future. This photo required a lot of post-processing, so I’m very glad I shot it in RAW. You can see the shadow of the earth on the moon. This was taken during a brief window when the new moon was visible just after it cleared the clouds above the horizon. 7:44 p.m., ISO 400, f/5.6, 2″, 250mm.

  1. You certainly can’t beat shooting in raw, and hopefully this is just the starting point in your moon shots, which improve further with each shot…

  2. Very nice shot though. A pity you didn’t get it totally sharp – but hey, isn’t that the way we all learn?
