Quick Tip: Use the Moon to Find the Sun

The other morning I was in the mountains waiting for the sun to rise and looking for the right composition. The moon was helping me because it was indicating exactly where the sun would be rising, which was great because

Photographing a Full Moon

Many of you are probably wondering how I photographed this image. My friends have all asked me, several of them photographers. The simple answer–this isn’t one image. It is two images. In one image I exposed and focused for the

Moonrise Over Adler Planetarium
Last week I went back to the place where we had the failed supermoon attempt at the third Out of Chicago photo walk.  I checked out The Photographer's Ephemeris on my iPad and had a pretty good idea that the moon would rise directly behind Adler Planetarium from my location. The sky looked a bit hazy again and I was concerned that clouds had rolled in over the lake.  But just a few minutes after the apps prediction, I noticed a glow forming just to the right of the planetarium. It took me a few moments to realize that this was not an artificial light from the planetarium.  It was the moon!
I ran up and down the sidewalk, looking for the best angle.  It was surprising how moving 30-40 feet changed the entire shot. I saw the statue of Copernicus silhouetted by the moon and went for it.  10 seconds later and the moon was too high for the silhouette.

Things have been extremely busy lately, but look forward to another photo walk coming soon and a few surprises in the next month or so.
