Blood Moon 2015 – View From Switzerland by YuriFineart

HOW I TOOK THE PHOTO:

Taken with the canon 600d and a Tamron 70-300mm at 300mm (480mm Full Frame equivalent). I put the camera on a tripod, set the lens to 300mm and aimed at the Moon. I played around with a bunch of ISO and shutter speed combinations but ended up liking following settings: 2.0s F5.6 ISO 3200 the best. I also made sure I was in mirror lockup mode, had a 10s timer and i stood back a few feet every time i pressed the shutter. I would have gone wider than 5.6 but unfortunately that’s the widest this lens will go, in addition I’ve cropped the photo a bit after taking it. P.S you really have to set the focus manually and get it right by trial and error but luckily i managed to get a perfectly sharp shot of the supermoon!
