Supermoon – A Photography Recipe Card

The moon is a source of light. Therefore, the shutter can be fast, the iso can be low, and aperture doesn’t have to be opened as wide because you are already getting plenty of light from the moon itself, despite being dark outside. This is why it is a good idea to shoot the moon in manual because otherwise your camera may get confused as the rest of the background is very dark.

  • 300mm f/5.6 Lens
