Shooting photographs of the moon can be difficult. The secret is to pretend your shooting on a cloudy day. Use an ISO of 400, an aperture of f4 and a shutter speed of 1/125 to get started. Shoot in manual mode and bracket your exposures from this starting point. You may get the best pictures of the moon, you’ve ever captured.
I’ve scheduled my first Urban Photography class of the year, Thursday,June 4th, 2015. We will meet at Wingfield park in Reno at 6:15pm. Last year these “walk about” events were a big success. Look for more workshops throughout the summer. I hope you can sign up for one of the these classes for a truly hands on experience.
Time to shake off the winter rust and get out there and shoot. The grandeur of Spring is awaiting. Longer days and great light will add to your fun.
Circular polarizers, ND filters, tripods, and macro lenses are all available at Gordon’s. We, also, have classes to teach you how to get that great photograph for your home decor, local contest or facebook page.
We had another great photo walk in Reno Tuesday night.
There is one in Carson City Monday 9/22. We will meet at
2nd and Curry streets for an educational photo walk through
the legislative plaza and old town Carson City. As the weather
is changing, this may be your last chance this season.
Sign up on our website or in our stores.
We have a great selection of Canon cameras and lenses in our stores!
For those of you interested in watching the eclipse, due to an overwhelming demand from customers as far away as Kentucky and Idaho, we have completely sold out of filters and viewing glasses. We have also heard that the planetarium is also sold out of observation glasses and many welding supply shops are sold out of the #14 welding glass. As an alternative, the Nevada astronomical society will the entire event streaming live on their website here.
For those of you lucky enough to get some viewing supplies, check out this great video with solar observation tips from “Fabulous Lake Tahoe.”
