The moon puts on an elegant show, different every time in shape, colour and nuance.”
This week we enjoyed an incredible “super moon” here on Kiawah. Coincidentally, Jake’s Sunday Post “Perspective” and Suellewellyn’s Word-A-Week challenge “Angles” gave me an opportunity to post about how important both elements are in photography.
“The moon is a friend for the lonesome to talk to.”
I find night photography quite difficult, but the call of the super moon was too strong to ignore. Moonrise was not until after 10:00 pm here on Kiawah, presenting me with a further challenge still. My husband was willing to act as my helper and companion, so off we went to look for some interesting approaches.
“The day, water, sun, moon, night – I do not have to purchase these things with money.”
Simply by changing my position and the angle of my shot, I was able to create several different perspectives of the same moon. Each has its own personality and gives us a new appreciation for the beauty of the scene.
“The moon is a loyal companion.”
Remember to change your perspective to find new ways of seeing each time you shoot. Overcome the obstacle of managing equipment in the dark, and rise (pun intended) to the challenge of “shooting the moon”.
How about you? Did the super moon come your way, and if so, did you go out to capture it’s splendor?
