That's a nice moon shot, focus issues aside!
Hey Phil, Nice shot. Are you gonna be out shooting the "supermoon" tonight? I have a D7000 with a 300mm lens, I had a few shots I wanted to share, is there anyway I can do that here?Thanks,Doug
Thanks, Guys!Doug - Frame your shot as needed. Maybe you want to do a close-up of the Moon, or maybe you want it near an object for size reference like a tree, water tower, building etc. You want to focus as near to infinity as possible, but what I do is this:a. Turn on LIVE VIEWb. Center Moon in focus squarec. Zoom in as much as possible using the + button at bottom left of rear of camerad. MANUALLY focus until the moon looks as sharp as possibee. Frame your shot and shootUse a remote and tripod, obviously. If you don't have a remote, use the countdown timer option instead.You can email me your shots at the email link at upper right of this blog!Cheers,Phil
