A few days ago inspiration struck me due to a post on WordPress that featured a picture of the almost Supermoon. I decided I would try to take a picture of the Supermoon using the specification used in the post. Despite having a digital camera for almost a year I am still working on the ins and outs of a Digital SLR. So with gloves on, tripod in hand, and camera around my neck I ventured to my favorite spot in Bellingham, Zuanich Point Park. The results of my first serious attempt at night photography was pleasantly surprising. Here are the two best pictures:
Both pictures were shot with my Nikon EOS Rebel T2i and a 55-250mm telescopic lens mounted on a tripod. The first picture’s settings were at ISO: 100, f/5.6, and 1/250 second exposure. The second picture’s settings were at ISO: 100, f/5.6, and 1/4000 second exposure.
