The tricks of catching the best shot in 'Blue Full Moon' ... The sky will be the scene of the splendor of the "Blue Full Moon" on Saturday, October 31st.
What should one pay attention to in order to capture the best frames on the Blue Full Moon, which offers an unmissable opportunity for photography lovers with the feature of being the first "Blue Full Moon" that can be seen from all over the world since 1944? Here are the Blue Moon tips from Canon brand ambassador and nature photographer Andrew Fusek Peters ...
One of the rare natural phenomena will take place on Saturday night, October 31st. Normally, the full moon, which occurs once a month, will occur 13 times in 2020 and will appear for the second time in October, and everyone will witness the "Blue Full Moon".
"Blue Full Moon", which means seeing two full moons in the same month, will give a visual feast to all photographers, regardless of whether they are amateur or professional. Another exciting feature of this full moon is that it can be observed from all over the world for the first time since 1944.
Canon brand ambassador and world-renowned nature photographer Andrew Fusek Peters shares the following tips for all photographers who want to create glamorous photos on the rare Blue Moon night:
Press the shutter in the right place at the right time
First, you must know where and when the moon will rise. It used to be very difficult and troublesome to make these calculations, but today you can use certain software for this job. The Photographer's Ephemeris 3D program, a light visualization tool for outdoor and landscape photographers, can help you with this. Thanks to this program, you can plan within a 50-meter area, learn the rising time of the moon and shoot without leaving your home.
Imagine your story
You may choose to photograph the "Blue Full Moon" as part of a larger story. In this way, more creative content can be created than the close-up moon shots we see a lot. The most important clue in this matter is the use of RAW format while shooting to show both the "Blue Full Moon" and the foreground in all its glory.
Follow your creative instinct
Speed and making the right decision are very important in nature shots. For this reason, you should think and act realistically in such shots.
Determine your focus
Photo artist Andrew Fusek Peters explains this with an example: “I almost couldn't take my“ Super Moon ”photo, which was used on the front page of The Times in 2016. I stopped filming and was going home. On my way home, I suddenly saw the clouds clear on my way to Stretton Church in Shropshire. The moon was just behind what I knew was a volcanic structure called Three Finger Rock. 'That's it!' I thought. I used a fence as a tripod and shot 3 images in a row. "My first shot was my main visual because I set my focus in advance," he said.
Everything is in your "hands"
Avoid using a tripod, especially for these types of shots. Ç�
