As I mentioned in my quick, one photo post on October 2nd, I was able to get outside on October 1st for the first time since June to spend some time with La Luna. I shared ten of the almost 150 shots on October 5th, (and to be fair, a number of those 150 look like I haven’t taken pictures in a while…lol), then last week I posted twelve others. Today I have seven more photos of the Full Harvest Moon, and I still have some to share next week, before I (hopefully) get to take some of the second full Moon of October when it appears on Halloween/Samhain!
This time again, since all of these were taken (using my my Nikon and tripod), in my Durham New Hampshire yard, I’m going to just mostly skip the captions and let the photos speak for themselves. Also, the differences between shots comes from adjusting the zoom & exposure for each, not from filtering. It’s always amazing to me what a huge difference a little zoom in/out, or exposure step up/down makes in what appears in my lens.
Now for twelve more photos of the Full Harvest Moon October 1st 2020
To start things off, I thought it would be interesting to show the difference the exposure makes. Pretty much every time I take a closeup of the moon, I do multiple shots, dropping the bias each time then deciding when I see them on my computer which one looks best. Funny thing though – I almost always choose the middle one (-1 step) as the one I like the most. I also resisted the urge to crop/edit these so the moon was more centered, because it shows that even the slightest touch of my camera (in this case, to adjust the exposure between shots) can alter the framing, which is something that happens to everyone but has become more of an issue for me since my Essential Tremor diagnosis a couple years back – and this was on a mostly tremor-free night!
Happy Moon Monday!
