Moon shot

DSC08788 (2)

Easy as 1 2 3. One, do your research, moon rise time, weather conditions, etc. Two, preset your camera manual settings before you leave the house. Beats fumbling in the dark. Three, find a perfect spot. If you can’t get an interesting photo from your backyard, locate a safe place with off the road parking.


Bigger is not always better. On our visit to the Renaissance Festival, I opted to carry my lighter and very versatile Sony DSC-HX400V. Weighing a mere 23 ounces, it was a no-brainer with all the walking on a hot summer day. Its 50X voom allowed for great shots from a distance, so crowds were not a problem. After all, it’s all about having fun.
