One of my objectives with a different camera was the ability to take good photos at night. I’ve been playing around with it and here are some of the results.
Setting the shutter to a slow speed to capture the moon nearing the horizon while a car passed by leaving light trails.
I was amazed at how many stars there were near a big city. More surprising is that they actually appear on the photo.
There was a bright half moon towards the end of the day. I was amazed how much detail shows up.
Later that night the moon shows even brighter. You can see the rough terrain of the moon by the jagged line where the light is reflecting off the moon.
After taking a lot of pictures trying to find the best settings I got a picture full of stars that are in focus. Keep in mind this is with a lot of light pollution near a big city.
Playing around with some of the manual settings on the camera provided an interesting moon burst. I think this was changing the aperture as high as it would go.
There is much more for me to experiment with while taking night photos but this was a fun start. I hope you enjoy these as I’m having fun figuring out how to take them.
