Shooting the Moon
Yep, it's the moon.
I've got probably hundreds of moon photos stored somewhere on laptops and memory cards. They all look pretty much alike. Ha! And yet, I still keep shooting the moon.
It isn't that I expect it to change much over the years. Who knows? What if it did??? Now there's a thought! (^.-)
Still, it's like home. It's comforting to see it hanging there in the sky.
I need a better lens to take moon pics. Something that will get a bit closer.
This particular pic was taken with my Nikon D80. The lens, 85mm prime. The f-stop I set to f/8, in hopes of getting the image a tiny bit sharper. Since I didn't use a tripod, I didn't want to get the aperture too small. I set the exposure time to 1/60 sec, again because I didn't bring a tripod. Next time, maybe. And finally, the ISO at 200.
It's not the best pic o' the moon, but it looks like... the moon. (O.o)
