Moonrise on Titan

November 20, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Although most of this year I’ve been shooting more still photography and video (most of which I haven’t posted), I decided to try and shoot a time lapse of the Supermoon that happened last week. Because I mainly shoot with a full-framed camera, I thought a 2x extender and nice zoom lens would help to capture the supermoon in all its glory. However to my disappointment, really my own fault, I put in the order to rent the gear a bit too late, which would have the extender and the zoom lens arrive a day after the Supermoon.

 

At that point, shooting the moon with my 28-135mm on a full-frame camera was not going to happen.  The only other option I had to capture the supermoon with was using my Full Spectrum crop sensor camera, which I primarily use for infrared photography. This combined with my 28-135mm, started to sound a bit more appealing, essentially turning my 28-135mm lens to a 45mm- 216mm lens. Since this was something I had never tried before, I was pretty curious as to how shooting the moon would turn out with my Full Spectrum Camera (Canon 7D) with a red filter (Hoya 25A) attached to it. Shooting in direct sunlight can be a real nightmare when shooting in infrared, which can produce some serious lens flare. So I had my reservations about shooting the full moon, which directly reflects sunlight.

You can see for yourself how this came out.

P.S. Turn up your speakers or headphones for this one.
