Eric Gaston Photography | The Not So Super Super-Moon

The Not So Super Super-Moon

May 06, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I went out to Canoe Creek State Park to shoot the "super moon."  I couldn't find a composition that I liked, so I broke out the long zoom lens...and got the same close up shots of the moon that every other photographer in every other spot in the country got (yawn).  As the clouds rolled in, I decided to play around. This is only my 1st or 2nd attempt at night photography, and it's a pain in the rear to compose a shot in the dark, but I'm fairly happy with the way this one turned out.  I tried to contrast the fast-moving clouds with the canoes sitting beside the lake.  This is a 70 second exposure and I used a small flashlight for about 15 seconds to add a touch or light to the canoes in the foreground.
