Super Blood Wolf Moon.
You may not know, but many photographers dislike the cliche of a full moon photography, as it usually lacks composition and/ or intention. This is because of the fact that the moon is usually super bright and reflective, so to capture the moon's details you need to let a very little amount of light into your camera, killing the dimmer star lights on its path. You would need to make a double exposure and even with that, most stars would be just blown away. But! During a lunar eclipse, the reflection of the moon is so dim, that it resembles the light of stars, allowing for a much cleaner and richer sky, ALL IN A SINGLE SHOT! Of course some postproduction is needed to bring up the brights and to darken the shadows, but the result is a one of a kind sky (won't repeat until 2022)
As of me, I cannot recall a moment in my life in which I did not wander through the mightiness of the infinite space among us. One of the things that first got me into photography, was the ability to see more than meets the eye. The combination of love for space, plus the tool to enhance vision led to a pretty straightforward passion for it.
By the way, this was shot on a Sony A6000 using a Nikon 55-200 3.5-5.6 with an adapter (shoutout to #Nikon
for making such high quality lenses across the entire range of prices) @70mm
(105mm on FE equiv.) using the 500 rule, allowing for a 5 sec exposure, with an aperture of 6.3 and a 320 iso, along with a very sturdy Manfrotto tripod. I will be uploading the rest as soon as I get the time to do it.
This is a 9:16 picture, perfectly suitable for smartphones (hence the double picture, as Instagram wouldn't let me upload a single 9:16, but a more squared 18:16) so if you would like to have the original file sent to you, just let me know and I will send a free copy.
