Who doesn't want to capture the beauty of the evening moon, whether it's moody and full or just an enigmatic crescent? But getting your exposure right can prove challenging. Here are three ways to include the moon in your scene without losing any of its mystery.
1) When the moon is full, follow the Sunny 16 rule.** Because a full moon on a clear night reflects sunlight just like the earth on a clear day, avoid getting an overexposed ball or an underexposed foreground by setting your aperture to f/16. Determine your shutter speed using the formula 1/ISO. For example, if you're shooting at ISO 200, the shutter speed should be 1/200 sec.
