How do you photograph skylines at night?

In most nighttime cityscape situations, a low ISO, Aperture Priority Mode, and using a tripod and remote shutter release will get you the best results. If photographing a skyline, use a moderate aperture in the f/8-f/11 range to ensure you’ve got a good depth of field that will keep all the buildings in sharp focus.

What size lens do I need for moon photography?

You need to find one with a focal length of, at least, 300mm. Thankfully, the moon is so bright that you do not need fast, expensive, telephoto lenses. Anything with an aperture of f/5.6 or f/8 will do. For a DSLR, we recommend the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 or Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM.

What is the best aperture for moon photography?

f/11

What is the best ISO setting?

How to Determine the Best ISO Settings

  • ISO 200-400: Slightly less ambient light, such as indoors during the daytime or outdoors in the shade.
  • ISO 400-800: Indoors, with a flash.
  • ISO 800-1600: Low light indoors or at night when you can’t use a flash.

Can you shoot 400 ISO at night?

Why are my moon pictures blurry?

@user53923 Any photo of the moon exposed for 10-30 seconds using a 300mm lens will be blurry due to the rotation of the earth beneath the moon, and the apparent motion of the moon caused by such long exposures. Even if the lens is perfectly focused.
