My Latest Photo Fun: Interesting Sky

My latest photo fun happened last February 6 when I was awakened from my day dreaming by the kids outside telling me about an interesting sky. True enough I saw clouds and the sun about to set painting an interesting composition. I scrambled back inside the house and grabbed the camera. I would have wanted to set up my tripod too, but I had a feeling that this interesting work of art is not going to last long. And newbie as I am, I even had a bit of confusion as I tried to adjust my settings after every hurried shot I made.

Here are the photos I took. A professional photographer who has really mastered the equipment surely would have captured and produced a much better picture of the western sky. Alas, I am far from that stage. I hope the next time this grand handiwork happens, I’ll be better equiped skill-wise in capturing it.

The spectacle changed quite rapidly I had to hurry with my shooting.

Photo Fun: Night Sky shots

And on the 8th of February, I took this moon-shot. I had taken a couple of moonshots before with the kit lens, but this is the first moonshot I took using the 18-200mm IS lens.

The moon was still going for full moon status (is that how you say it?). So, on the 11th, I took another moon shot. The result was more or less like the one above except that it showed more moon surface this time. However, on DPP I tried adjusting the White Balance and got this result.

  1. Whoa! To be honest, that looks like one of those clouds in Super Mario on the Nintendo 64. Didn’t believe such things existed in real life 🙂

    Wonder what peach’s up to.


    1. As I got a feeling that the cloud photo opportunity would not last very long, I opted to just shoot handheld.

      As for all moonshots, I always use a tripod. There’s no way my camera could efficiently cope up with my hand shake and produce clear moonshots. 🙂

    1. Hi Meg, thanks. I’m learning the ropes of photography gradually. I hope I could make really crisp photos soon. 🙂

    1. Tripod could possibly be set up in less than a minute, but I have no idea how long such cloud and light formations would last. So I didn’t take chances. Things like these may last only a few seconds. The one above actually lasted around 4 minutes, constantly fading away every second.
