Last night, I finally was able to accomplish a goal of mine - to take a picture of the moon where you could actually see the moon, as opposed to just a white circle of light in the sky.
The first picture I took wasn't so great, but things got better!
Having fun with it now!
Some fun edits on the moon picture:
I used the following settings on my camera (which is a Canon T5i), using my telephoto lens.
Shutter speed 1/125
Note: Using a tripod is absolutely necessary to capture a shot of the moon, because you can't hold the camera still enough to focus with the heavy telephoto lens.
Photography is a large world, and my camera never ceases to amaze me with all it can do. I still have so much to learn, but I am enjoying the journey!
