How to catch a super moon


It's Superman! No, no, it's supermoon! Break out your long lenses.

Our first opportunity is on Saturday, June 22nd. The moon rises at 7:56pm and the sun sets at 8:35pm. So we have about 30-40 minutes of balanced light, supposing clear skies.

For this shoot I have chosen a location that will put the Bay Bridge in the foreground. We will meet about 7:00pm and I'll talk about the particulars of how to get great moon shoots as well as considerations for composition and balanced light. I will also stick around after sunset and talk about considerations for night photography.

If you are new to photography, not to worry. If you don't know how to work all the buttons and dials, no problemo - just load a pdf of your camera manual on your phone and I can help you find everything, even if it's not a Nikon. :-)

Bring both a long lens (zoom) as well as a medium length lens for capturing the foreground. A tripod will also be helpful, as well as a remote trigger and if you have it a tele-extender (to make your long lens even longer.)

If you are one of those who sign up at the last minute, you can call me on the day of the event at[masked] to obtain meeting details. Cut off is 3pm.
