How To Photograph The Moon - From Capture To Lightroom

Watch photographer Serge Ramelli as he takes you through his workflow for capturing and editing full moon sequences.

| Landscape and Travel


If you're an astrophotography fan, you may recognise Serge Ramelli's name as we've previously featured a rather cool astrophotography photography tutorial he published on ePHOTOzine. This time, Serge's focus is the moon, the supermoon to be precise, and he's put another top tutorial together to help you learn the art of moon photography. 

Even though the tutorial focuses on the recent supermoon we witnessed, the technique can be used when there's just a normal full moon in the night's sky so it's still well worth a watch. 

Serge captured the supermoon over downtown Los Angeles with a Sony A7r II and a Sony FE 70-300mm lens. He bracketed all of his shots (O, +2, -2) and his base exposure was 1.6 sec, f/5.6 with an ISO of 100. Serge completed the final image in Lightroom / Photoshop and you can watch how he layers the exposures and what edits he applies in the video tutorial above. Below is the finished image and you can download the RAW files from Serge's website should you wish to follow the tutorial.
