Color Night Photography: Tree With Moon

  2018 January 12    Galleries   Film

Photographing the moon at night, especially with film, is a particular challenge.  The film speed is only 100 to 400, usually.  That means the shutter speed will be slow.  And the moon is so much brighter than everything else in the scene.  So generally, you get this luminous, diffuse orb, together with some tree branches that may or may not have blurred. 

The result is more impressionist than photo-realistic.  And I think it works well with the subject matter.

These were shot on Fujifilm color negative film, I think it was Superia 400

One or two of these were shot without a tripod;  shutter speed probably 1 second or possibly two.  And by the way, the different colors from picture to picture were on purpose. 


They were driven forth from among men, (they cried after them as after a thief;)
To dwell in the clifts of the valleys, in caves of the earth, and in the rocks.
Among the bushes they brayed; under the nettles they were gathered together.


Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall spoilers come unto her, saith the Lord.
A sound of a cry cometh from Babylon, and great destruction from the land of the Chaldeans


In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump:
for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed


Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.
Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens

I hope you've enjoyed the photo gallery.  Thanks again for reading.
