Day 30/365 Fly Me To the Moon
When I take "moon" pictures- at least the ones I like, I turn the metering to spot meter, use an f-stop of about 8, ISO 100, and usually 1/60 second. I had the fancy new lens to try out and tried it at 400mm, doing all of that, but I forgot to turn off the Image Stabilizer and I had it on a tripod. Sometimes that can cause some vibration, thus not letting such a clear picture happen. I also think that our hot tub was on, and maybe causing the deck to vibrate a little bit. Anyway, I've taken better moon pictures with my little crappy 70-300 Canon non-IS lens before. Oh well, after yesterday's outing I'm so exhausted I can't even focus.
