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

Our last opportunity is on Sunday evening. The moon rises on at 8:54pm and the sun sets at 8:35pm. So we have no balanced light, supposing clear skies.

So for this shoot I have chosen a location that put the Golden Gate Bridge in view. This will give us a bright foreground to make up for the dark sky and still get a fairly balanced image. We will still meet at 7:30pm so we can shoot sunset at this location. 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 talk about some of the ins and outs of 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 is a definite. A remote trigger and if you have it a tele-extender (to make your long lens even longer.) will be helpful.

If you are one of those who sign up at the last minute, you can call me on the day of the event at 415-374-9210 to obtain meeting details. Cut off is 3pm.
