How to Photograph a Moonrise | Landscape Photography

In this video I look at how to photograph a Moonrise…something I have never tried! I enjoyed last weeks Moonlight Landscape Photography shoot so much that I simply had to get out again as soon as possible and shoot some more Moon focused images. I head to Maughold Head on the north east coast of the Isle of Man for this night time shoot. The moonrise from this location was absolutely stunning! Thankfully I manage to capture an image I was exceptionally pleased with but it was massively difficult to achieve. The shooting conditions were difficult plus the editing challenges were significant. I hope you enjoy joining me on this little moonrise adventure and pick up some inspiration and ideas along the day.

As always thanks very much for watching and if you have any experience or thoughts on Moonrise photography I’d be very interested to hear from you below. Thanks 🙂

Shot – f2.8, 30 seconds to 5 seconds, ISO2000, 24mm, 12 focus stacked image (long exposures used for majority of image, short exposure used for the area around the moon). All exposured compiled together using Photoshop.
