What’s your fancy? Full Moon

In this edition of What’s your fancy?, help me pick our your favorite full moon shot.


I took this shot with my Nikon D5200 and used a 55mm-300mm Nikkor lens.  The shutter was set at 1/320 and the aperture was 5.6. When shooting the moon, I find it best to use a fast shutter.  Too slow of a shutter and the moon turns into a bright white ball.  I play around with the shutter speed until I get the moon just the way I want it.

Post shot editing

I used FX Photo studio to enhance and add themes to the photo.

So what’s your fancy?

      • I like hazy and the bowling ball moon the best. I also like the Charlie Brown moon. I want to share a photo with you of a shadow of Mt. Rainier, but I don’t want to screw anything up with your wonderful blog. I know you would love it. My friend took it. We aren’t photographer’s. It was on the news, but this photo is better than there’s was! How should I share that with you?

  1. I love the original! Hazy is my second fav. And the blue bowling ball one is my third. I love moon shots! Being in NY we dont get a good view of the moon often. Or stars. I want to see some stars :(

  2. It’s so difficult to choose. I like the original and hazy but Charlie Brown is so different and unique. I’m gonna say Charlie Brown. Thanks for your work at giving us fun. =)

  3. I love the Charlie Brown one, but they are all brilliant. I did this sort of thing in college, many, many moons ago (ahem), experimenting with effects, and I used them all as a series exploring what I could do rather than picking one. So that’s what I would’ve done. Picked them all. But, if I had to chose, the first one.
