Full Moon

Mike wanted to see how well he could capture a full moon from our backyard using his new Nikon 70-300mm zoom lens. He used the following settings:


No Tripod (Handheld)

Mode: Manual

Shutter Speed: 125

Aperture: f8

Focus: Auto

ISO: 100

Format: RAW


He then increased the sharpness and contrast with his RAW software, NX2, before converting the RAW image to JPEG. Then, I heavily cropped in my Photoshop Elements 8 before uploading to Flickr.


He was very pleased with the results!
