Full moon is a lunar phase that occurs when the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. More precisely, a full moon occurs when the geocentric apparent (ecliptic) longitudes of the Sun and Moon differ by 180 degrees; the Moon is then in opposition with the Sun. As seen from Earth, the hemisphere of the Moon that is facing the earth (the near side) is almost fully illuminated by the Sun and appears round. Only during a full moon is the opposite hemisphere of the Moon, which is not visible from Earth (the far side), completely unilluminated. The time interval between similar lunar phases—the synodic month—is on average about 29.53 days. Therefore, in those lunar calendars in which each month begins on the new moon, the full moon falls on either the 14th or 15th of the lunar month. Because lunar month nths have a whole number of days, lunar months may be either 29 or 30 days long.

Made by nicholas.zeidler
Not a while lot to say here this evening. I need to do some research about the moon. When it is biggest in the sky, what time of year is best, etc. It looked pretty neat tonight so I took the tripod out and took a few shots. Tried some HDR but the moon kept moving and photoshop didn't seem to line them up correctly or I'm doing something majorly wrong because it looked like crap in every combo. So, after giving up on HDR, I got it while it was still light out so the ski was lit and the camera would meter correctly instead of just blowing it out. Although zoomed in it looks ok it doesn't have the detail that I really want from a nice crisp moon picture. I had to crop it so tight. I just need it closer, 300mm DX lens is about as I'm ever going to get. PLEASE PLEASE anyone that knows anything about moon pictures, send some tips over!

Seeing is Believing

Active Assignment Weekly - Album Cover God, I'm just having too much fun messing about with my limited 'free' photo processing packages that I said I'd never use. But for an assignment like this, I feel there is no option. Anyway, please lend an ear to the first (and probably ONLY) ever album Seeing is Believing by camp combo The Pink Grapefruits - a kind of cross between the Scissor Sisters and the Buzzcocks (for those of us who remember them). Available in limited edition pink or green vinyl (for those of us who remember vinyl). Soon touring sleazy pubs and bars in YOUR town. WIT: One orange, one apple, one bag of Maltesers, a sharp knife, a spoon, a camera on a tripod, a white foam board. Some colour swapping and cropping. All performed without the aid of Adobe Photoshop. What fun :0)

He's done it again! What a fantastic bird!!!! (had I the time and patience I would also have liked to make the sign more woody looking with a texture overlay (oouuu) and made him more blended in, his helmet is cat altogether!!!!), I'm looking at him now thinking he looks like he just been plonked there and floating (not very realistic) but then I thought sure sod it, if he's on the moon he'd be floating anyway!!! Plus he's very 3D looking.... P.S. everyone else's moon recently is way sharper, not fair, I used the tripod, I changed the settings, WHAAAAA!!!!!!

My first moon shot

Not the most detailed shot of the moon but it'll suffice. I'm pretty sure I could get better resolution with a mirrored telescope or a 500mm but I don't have access to any of those things. 300mm (Nikkor 28-300 f/3.5-5.6), f/22, 1/30 sec, ISO Lo1 This image is cropped Thanks to my friend Didem for her tips.

I was driving down the road, came to a red light & just happened to look up & out my window. I had to grab the camera & had time to snap just one shot before the light turned green. :)
