Full Moon Over Cupid's Arrow San Francisco

San Francisco August Super Full Moon

Learn moon photography at the on San Francisco's Embarcadero during the “Golden Hours” of light. Shoot the moon over San Francisco with San Francisco Chronicle retired staff photographer Frederic Larson. Discover the tricks of the trade photographing the full moon as it rises during the magic moments of twilight. See how to plot landmarks, read a compass, and choose an angle as the moon rises; measure exposures then scan images; and finally lay out your art for publication. Explore principles of light mastered by professional photographers of National Geographic magazine.

What you will be covering is moon photography. The range of focal length recommended is long to medium telephoto lenses. A tripod is suggested as the class will be doing long explorers in low light situations. The class will incorporate expose times, f/stop settings and certain photographic techniques that are beneficial in nighttime photography. Main areas of emphasis will be capturing peak moment.

    Great, moon and atmosphere didn't cooperate, but got lots of nice photos anyway. Can't go wrong in SF.

    Great fun last night despite lack of cooperation from the atmospheric haze and clouds. There's always plenty to shoot in SF even if your main target is not optimal.

    Hi Fred....I'm not familiar with this area of San Fran and
    was wondering if you could tell me a good spot to park my car? Thanks for any help.

    Fred, I'm adding 2 friends as guests for watching our full moon shooters with me. They have not witnessed the moon rising up before. I hope it will be acceptable to you. Thanks
