Don't be lazy by using zoom lenses when you can use your legs. Photos with prime (single focal length) lenses are typically sharper than a zoom lens and more so when you zoom in to get that photo. So, use your legs when it is safe and permitted.
We all like to get accolades for our work. No matter if it is for your day-to-day work or the latest photo you posted on FaceBook or some other social media. Feedback can make you feel good. Or, it could make you feel bad.
So, let's talk about how to give feedback in a constructive way so you help the recipient and help them.
Nice and short this week, but it is something that I wanted to share. Most feedback I see is genuine and kind, but occasionally you get a troll, and as I said above, ignore them.
Now go take pictures.
It is getting cold outside where I live. While I carry several lens cleaning cloths with me in all my camera bags, it is a good idea to clean your lenses before you leave so you have a clean lens to start with. So, clean your lenses in the warmth of your home before you leave.
It really isn't hard. Moon photography. Nope, it isn't hard unless you make it hard.
This short blog is intended to get you started and not to be used as "the perfect setting" for your next moon shot. If you want to see a video version of this post check it out here.
So here are the basics:
Depending on the moon and how bright it is those settings are just a starting point. My photo below had these settings:
The moon was full and very bright so I needed to move my aperture to F22.
Tip: The moon is so far away, there is not an issue with depth of field. F1.8 is just as good as F22 at that distance. So, adjust the aperture as much or little as you please.
Don't forget to leave comments for me on my YouTube version of this post.
This is more than a photography tip, it is a life tip. Write it down. If you want to remember something, write it down on what ever system you use. If it is a task list, a Franklin Planner, a sticky note, a three-ring binder, one note, etc. Organize things you want to learn/try on your favorite "to do" system and get it done.
