That's really missing the big picture if you will.
So this Friday instead of writing another long and boring article about exposure I went with my tripod and a couple of lenses to make some nightshots around my house.
I didn't take any of the pictures I thought I would, but I did get a handful of interesting images I didn't expect.
Only when I came back I realized it was a blue moon, and I had actually photographed it. What is so special about a blue moon? well, see below...
I went out at around 18:30 to scout some areas I thought would be interesting, and got this right around sunset:
|Rehovot mall. 1/1600sec @ f/8. massively underexposed, obviously...|
Also around sunset time I saw these tables at the park
This from the same angle as the panorama before, with a different lens and cropped down about a half. This kind of cropping makes me glad I have 12MP to throw around.
People on the street didn't quite get why I was pointing a rather large camera+lens+tripod setup at a closed shawarma place. I just liked the red lights going on inside.
And finally the blue moon which I promised. I almost didn't notice it was up but then decided I already had the tripod and long lens on, why not take a couple of shots?
If you are too lazy to look up blue moon on Google, here it is.
