So, tonight there’s going to be a amazing and rare event in the sky – the Super moon. To be completely honest with you, I’ve noticed that there are these “biggest/closest ever moon” news been popping up lately. In fact, every other month, there’s one.
Anyways, today (November 13th 2016) there’s a big one. NASA says that this time moon is so close to the earth that, it only happens in hundreds of years (biggest since 1948). So, if you are planning to shoot it on your phone, here are a few tips on how to do it the right way.
Shooting the Supermoon with your mobile phone
1. Use only optical zoom, not digital zoom as it will blur the photo.
2. Use a tripod if possible, so you don’t get a shaky photo.
3. If you don’t have a tripod, keep the phone somewhere stable.
4. Tap on the moon and lock your focus on it before clicking.
5. Adjust your brightness by sliding your finger after locking in on the moon.
6. If possible, do a bit of underexposure so you can see all the details.
7. Fix a location early on without any obstruction.
8. Having a building or landmark in your frame will definitely make the picture a lot better.
I’ve got an iPhone 7 plus. Will it make it any better? Well, let me find out. All the best to you.
