An over-moon is definitely a magical sight! Tonight in the evening, after 70 years, the full moon will be larger and brighter than ever before! So it's the perfect opportunity to capture it!
Here are some useful tips to get the best picture with your smartphone:
- Find an advantageous point
Taking it will be more impressive if it has a sense of scale. Try to photograph the moon when it is near the horizon, so the image will include a first shot. Another good idea is, as it rises above a city or monument, or over a cape, if you are near the coast.
According to NASA's top photographer, Bill Ingalls being in an urban area where there is more light can do λήψη more panoramic, including some new features.
- Take your equipment
According to smartphone specialist Leigh Stark, a smartphone with better quality camera can help. "IPhone 7 owners are able to take advantage of the magnification provided by their camera. The iPhone 7 Plus will let you zoom in with the optical zoom, while the iPhone 7 works with digital zoom."
It is also worth using a tripod to eliminate the swing. If you do not, use something to support your phone. Also, do not forget that you could use a telescope to connect your smartphone.
- Download the right applications
Stark also encourages budding photographers to download the free iOS and Android Adobe Lightroom app. The most important feature? RAW support.
If you are unfamiliar with RAW, think of it as a digital negative that gets more information and details than a JPEG standard and lets you export it later. In the application, click on the camera where you should be offered two options - "DNG" or "JPG".
Select DNG. "DNG is its RAW format Adobe, also known as Digital Negative, and when you take the picture in this format, you will be able to get more details from it later, "explained Stark. Using RAW, you can combine the images later to get the best shot possible.
- Practice your technical focus
If you're using a smartphone, make sure you touch the moon on your screen to focus and adjust the brightness.
A good technique if you are high enough to shoot the moon over your city is to focus on the less bright buildings, taking a much brighter moon photo.
