Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken from a park overlooking the Hudson River in Weehawken, New Jersey.

Time

It was just after sundown. The PhotoPills app was used to anticipate where the moon would be rising.

Lighting

No special lighting was used.

Equipment

I used a Canon R7 with the 55-150mm kit lens on a tripod with a Platypod Platyball head.

Inspiration

I was attending a workshop and we knew the moon would be rising in just the right spot and time from that location. It was raining when we arrived but, luckily, the clouds cleared out to the east and the moon came into view.

Editing

No special post processing was done for this photo.

In my camera bag

My bag contains my Canon R7, the 18-150mm kit lens and a 100-400mm lens. I also carry a Platypod for instances where a tripod is not allowed.

Feedback

An app like PhotoPills is a great tool to help determine where the sun or moon will be at any time of the day or night. It can tell you where you should stand for the best view if you are time constrained or when to be in a certain spot if you’re looking for the best shot from that location.
