The following are a collection of notes taken when I first began to work with moon-light photography. When the moon is out one can take long exposures (based on the phase of the moon) and capture the landscape as it would appear during the day, but with stars in the skies:) I hope the following will be helpful to you...I continue to learn/fine tune my moonlit landscape photography.
A trip to East Texas on September 20, 2002 provided me with an opportunity to play with exposures for my Leonid 2002 trip, where myself along with some friends were hoping to photograph Big Bend at night.
This particular mission dealt with gathering exposures when taking photos of a landscape lit by the full or nearly full moon. In addition notes were taken on the sky itself.
At 9pm my mission began. Dew was already forming on the ground The moons light danced upon the dew creating a starry sky of its own. I took a deep breath enjoying the view to the fullest. The starry skies above me and the dew like a thousand glittering diamonds at my feet:)
