Photos from Last Night's Full Moon Shoot
They have plenty of Ben E. King videos with over a million views.
But, this one has the best sound, I think.
When I'm out there shooting the moon, that's really the only light I see.
So, that Stand By Me tune has been going around in my head, all day today.
On the camera, I play around with exposure settings.
Shooting with an aperture of f/11, f/16 or f/22, I adjust shutter speed to underxpose.
Every once in awhile a big truck would drive by and rattle the sidewalk.
Or, a flock of mosquitoes would come by and start munching on me.
I just yell stuff like, "Dogdammit" cuz I'm tryin' to cut down on my cussin'.
Then, get back to the business of shooting.
Back in the office, I develop the photos and put the moon wherever I want it in the frame.
If you really concentrate, some of the photos are going to come out alright.
Usually, I take 20 or, so but, last night I only shot eleven.
Now, I can't get that tune out of my head.
"When the night has come....."
Here's hoping you enjoyed it as much as I do !
