Chris Smith’s Tips for Photographing Monday’s Supermoon #celebratephotography

NewImage

Great tips from Chris Smith on photofocus:

A supermoon occurs when the full moon coincides with the time that the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit. This makes the moon appear larger and brighter. It’s only about 7% larger and brighter than an average full moon. But, hey, it’s a reason to get out and shoot it. And a reason to hashtag all of your images with #supermoon while the world is excited about it!

A beginner’s mistake when photographing the moon is to stand in your backyard and get a closeup of the moon up in the sky. There is nothing wrong with that, but your image will look the same as everyone else that has done that. To make your image different, you’ll want to combine it with an iconic object in the foreground. Remember that Scott Bourne recommends that you make photos rather than just take photos! This is great chance to do that.

We #celebratephotography here at Adafruit every Saturday. From photographers of all levels to projects you have made or those that inspire you to make, we’re on it! Got a tip? Well, send it in!

If you’re interested in making your own project and need some gear, we’ve got you covered. Be sure to check out our Raspberry Pi accessories and our DIY cameras.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
