Photographing the Hunter's Supermoon in Denver

October 27, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

As a Colorado-based photographer, it is important to me to capture nature's 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.

I last photographed the moon 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 thankful for their patience! Anyway, I found the mysticism and adventure of the lunar eclipse shoot because I used film!

Not knowing what the results would look like without experience or guidance was exciting. I just went out there and clicked away! Let the drums roll. 

I took my film to get developed, and most of my prints looked like a bright flashlight in the dark. Fast forward twenty years later, I must have done something right this round!

I used a variety of camera settings to capture the six moons shown in the photo. I'm thankful for the digital age. Having a live view, seeing your results, and adjusting as needed made me do the happy dance.
