The following images are taken by Canon EOS 7D with a 75-300mm Ultrasonic lens. Shot in Aperture Priority (first two almost full moon images) and complete Manual mode (the crescent moon images) with a tripod. The Exif (Exchangeable Image File Format) data is given under each shot.
These are not perfect images as one would expect, but a good start. I would like to improve upon these shots using correct exposures and get into a darker place while shooting it. To avoid the shake, while shooting the crescent moon I used the self timer of 10 secs. I have the remote but was a bit lazy to hook on..!!. Due to the delay, the moon shifted to the lower left corner when viewed on the camera screen. Next time I will be sure to use a remote or a 2 sec timer.
I will be glad if critics can suggest a better approach to take moon shots and opine on above. Truly appreciate readers feedback.
These images are straight from my backyard. You get only few seconds to capture the ever changing sky.
All images are unfiltered, which means they are not digitally manipulated other than for sizing. I used the GIMP application to add the watermark and resize (file size avg. 3MB to file size avg. 600KB) every picture.
Do let me know how you find them.
Next I will post the MOON…!!
