As a Denver, Colorado Photographer, it's important that I capture natures beauty. The Hunter's Supermoon of October 2016 was a beautiful capture! It was also a great way to test my new ProMaster XC525 tripod.
The last time I photographed the moon was during a lunar eclipse in the early 1990s on top of Red Rocks Amphitheater. My parents came along with me for the little adventure. I'm absolutely thankful for their patience! Anyway, I found mystic and adventure of the lunar eclipse shoot due to the fact I used film! I had no idea what the results were going to look like. No experience or guidance. Just went out there and click clicked away! Let the drums roll. I took my film to get developed and most of my prints looked like a darn flashlight in the dark. Fast forward to today...well I did something right this round!
I used a variety of camera settings to capture the six moons shown in the photo. I'm quite thankful for the age of digital. Having live view and being able to see your results and adjust accordingly makes me do the happy dance.
Camera Gear: Nikon D7000 Crop Sensor and a NIkkor 18-200mm lens. Nicely nestled on my new tripod!
