Moonlight Photography Can Produce Some Fine Results

5 Flares 5 Flares ×

While the sun is definitely the best course of natural light for many types of photography, don’t forget that the moonlight can also be quite effective. In fact, a good camera will actually be able to see more at night than your eyes can, especially when you open the aperture wide, expose the shot for about 30 seconds and turn up the ISO reasonably high.

When the moon shines high in the sky, much like the sun does during the middle of the day, you’ll notice that the colors are more subdued and the light is generally harsher. When the moon shines lower in the sky the light is generally quite a bit softer and the images can be quite nicely saturated.
