Event: Full Moon Shooting
Location: Kg. Bkt Sg. Putih, Ampang
This is an experimentation on shooting full moon. I've tried a direct shoot of full moon before and this time around, I'm experimenting shooting with slow shutter and adding some elements in it. As a start, I being shooting the directly to the moon to get the texture of the moon's surface.

Then, I added a tree branches as a foreground to it and focus straight to it instead of to the moon, thus eliminating the moon's surface.
Then, by maintaing the focusing point and aperture (f20), and with a moving cloud around the moon, I set the shutter speed to 20 sec. I got 'blurry' background as follow:

Finally, I reduce the shutter speed to get different effects. Luckily enough, I managed to get a more dramatic image with different shutter speed.
