Shoot the Blue Moon with Frederic Larson

The full moon occurs once every 29.5 days. This essentially means that there is one full moon every month. However, as we know, every month but February has at least 30 days in it, which presents the potential for two full moons in a month. August 2012 - is one of these unique months, which will have two full moons. There will be a full moon on August 2nd, and then another full moon on August 31st.

So those of us whom are superstitious in regards to full moons will have two special days in August of 2012.

The term Blue Moon can refer to the second full moon in a given month. When people say "once in a blue moon" they are speaking to the rarity of the occurrence of a second moon happening in the same given month.

Fred has earned the admiration of many readers for his fabulous images of the Bay Area. He is especially proud of his iconic full moon and sunrise/sunset images. Fred will work personally will share with us some of his secrets for creating the mystical photographic images for which he has been honored. Exact location TBA to those who sign-up.

Hope to see you soon on Blue Moon night!

    My husband and I had a great time at the Shoot the Blue Moon event. We enjoyed meeting the fellow photographers and of course waiting for the moon to rise, which was indeed a touch and go situation, but thankfully the guest of honor rose to the occasion. I have some beautiful memories and photos from a fabulous evening. Rosemary and Troy

    Nice crowd last night. And of course it had to be Fred's "mystical" powers that coaxed the moon out of an otherwise hopelessly foggy situation.

    Fredric was very helpful and friendly. We got lucky with the clouds, right timing.
