IF YOU have a digital camera and wish to do the moon photography, the options for the moon filling the frame is out of question. However, with a basic digital camera, one can try the option of making the moon as element in the background of a landscape composition.
The best time for the moon photography is the twilight on the days moon is visible in the sky, which allows you the setting of the camera on the landscape mode. In such a situation, the moon in the frame as an element of the landscape or other elements in the frame should be included.
Here are some tips for taking reasonable shots of the twilight moon.
Set the camera at the longest focal length that you can, like 150 or more
Set off the flash or cover it with a butter paper
Use a tripod or a firm rest for the camera.
Set the exposure using the landscape without the moon in the frame.
In order to avoid even the slightest shake of the camera, either trip the shutter with a remote release or use the self-timer feature of the camera.
