Crescent

DSC_4410I think the best time to photograph the moon is just before or just after sunset, when the light is in transition from light to dark. It provides a much more dynamic and beautiful background for the subject. The trees also add context and framing.

To take this photo I used my Dolica Proline tripod and set an eight-second exposure @ f/16.

The moon makes a great marker

Tonight I decided to take the train only half way home and walk the rest. I love experimenting with light, movement and exposure. The colors are amazing and you never quite know how it’s going to turn out.
