It is 1:45 AM and here I am, sitting at my computer, feeling irritated that my blood moon shots didn’t turn out the way I wanted. I’ve taken moon shots before and they weren’t as difficult since the moons were brightly lit. Silly lunar eclipse took all the good, usable light away. You’d think that a $500 tripod set-up would solve my problem, but nooo, I still had camera shake since my lens was heavy, coupled with an awkward upward angle. Bleagh. Anyway, I decided that the solution to this problem would be this awesome lens:
Notice how much it costs!! Oh my gravy! I sent this to my father as a joke and asked if he would get it for me as a present. He responded with “lol”…which must be his nice way of saying NO! 😉
Anyway, here is the shot I decided was decent enough to post. I asked the BF, aka Mr. Alfredo, for some constructive criticism. His response:
“It looks like a picture.”
He must be tired, too. That must be it.
After some playful chiding (on my end), he suggested I try a panoramic crop. So here it is! Now I am off to bed. Luckily I am on spring break and don’t have to worry about teaching tomorrow (or today, rather)!
