How To Photograph The Supermoon

A rare supermoon phenomenon will happen tomorrow night, November 14, 2016 as our satellite will orbit closer to earth than it has ever before since January 1948. Tomorrow is expected to be the biggest and brightest full moon in our generation.

“The full moon of Nov. 14 is not only the closest full moon of 2016 but also the closest full moon to date in the 21st century,” Nasa said in a statement, adding the full moon will not come this close to Earth again until 25 November 2034.

I find peace and serenity just by looking at the moon. That is why photographers and hobbyist like me is waiting for this kind of opportunity to be able to take a good clear photograph of the moon. But how to photograph the supermoon?

Well, for you to be able to take a good shot of the moon, you need to be somewhere dark where there is less light. Good option is at a high altitude or at the mountain. Bring along your friends or someone special to celebrate this special night for moon lovers. Then of course you need to set your camera in its best settings. In the video below, Tony said to set your camera into Manual mode with seetings like ISO 100, f/8 and 1/60th sec. To know more, watch his video tutorial below.

If the sky is cloudy and you did not get the chance to take a clear photo, don’t worry, look out for the next supermoon on Wednesday December 14, 2016 or wait until 2034 for the next best supermoon lol. Happy shooting. Happy Supermoon.
