As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, everyone has moon fever. There has never been a better time to grab your camera and head outside to take a shot of our moon, and this excellent video will show you everything you need to know to do just that.
Coming to you from Karl Taylor, this awesome video will show you everything you need to know about how to take a great photo of the moon. Although astrophotography is a notoriously difficult genre, the moon is a bit of an exception, and given both that and its beauty, it is a wonderful subject for beginner and advanced photographers alike. Also, unlike other astrophotography, it doesn't take specialized equipment and tremendous amounts of time and post-processing work to take high quality images. All you need is your camera, a telephoto lens, and a decent tripod. Although Taylor is using a remote shutter release for this shot, if you don't have one, that's no problem at all. Instead, just use your camera's shutter timer and mirror lockup (if you're shooting with a DSLR) so you can minimize vibrations. Check out the video above for the full rundown!
