Bad moon rising

Bad moon rising
Last Tuesday the moon looked really cool, so I grabbed my camera and tripod and spent quite a while trying to get a decent exposure of the moon. I knew there wasn\’t much in the foreground to make the shot very interesting, but I thought it would be good practice just to get out and experiment. Well, after about an hour I came back in and started going through the photos and not a single one came out properly exposed. Every shot was bad, and I ended up telling my wife that I couldn\’t get a decent shot of the moon to save my life. This failure prompted me to do a little research on techniques for photographing the moon, so I would be ready the next time an opportunity came along. As it turns out, \”next time\” ended up being the following night. I managed to get several decent shots with the moon properly exposed.
