Supermoon Chicago

date November 14, 2016 location Chicago, IL comments 2 Comments

Here is the supermoon taken from the Chicago Riverwalk. I've never really tried capturing one of these "special" moon nights before but I figured it would be worth a try. A quick google of "how to shoot the moon" suggested my longest lens (obviously), shooting with a cable release, sturdy tripod, high aperture, and quick shutter speed. Even with my 200mm lens I had to crop the shot down even further. I didn't apply a ton of post processing here, just added some contrast, clarity and turned down the blacks to make them pure black.
