Day 266
Picture Style
Fast Shutter


Ring of Fire.  I captured the moon glowing orange through forest fire smoke.

The moon is a fast moving target!  It moves quickly so you need to use a fast shutter speed to capture it.  The best settings for a great moon shot are ISO 100, an aperture between f5.6 and f11, and a shutter speed between 1/125 and 1/250. You will need to use a tripod to avoid vibrations.

If the moon isn't your thing, or simply is not a possibility, perhaps try photographing a scarf twirling in a circle, a ball in motion, or a tire spinning!  Have fun with fast shutter speed.
