Life in a Northern Town

Harvest Moon

Photographing the moon has been a super irritating adventure for me. See the above photo? I have 34 other ones exactly like it, a blindingly bright orb and not much else. Since the harvest moon is the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox, I desperately wanted to capture a decent picture of it. The main problem was Will (my in-house photographic expert) was at the homecoming football game and I had to rely on my google search of 'how to shoot the moon' to point me in the right direction. This guy (link here) had the magic formula— f/11 and 1/250. The picture of the bloody vampire initially turned me off but I'm glad I kept reading. It's amazing what following the directions will do for a girl.
