Photography by moonlight

Well last Monday was a full moon and it was time to put into practice a technique I’d learned in Spain. There is a beautiful, eerie quality to photographs taken under the light of a full moon.

Amber, Nadjib & myself met up outside The Stag at Burnham Beeches at about 11.00pm to begin our walk into the woods and to the ponds within, the quiet of the night broken only by the sound of birdsong.

We set up our tripods and cameras and fired off a few test shots whilst waiting for the moon to reach a decent height and then to begin in earnest.

In summary it was a great evening out and it was good to develop a technique that is new(ish) to me. We finished about 1.30 am and wandered back to our cars.
