The moon is totally different each single night time. You possibly can check with a lunar calendar to seek out out what part the moon is in, in addition to when moonrise will be anticipated. The climate, after all, is a distinct matter.
As you may think, a transparent night time sky is fascinating. “You should take photos of the moon on a clear night, with no clouds in the sky. Even thin cloud layers can make it difficult to get good photos,” says Flickr photographer colorpix.
And folks in densely populated areas produce other points to fret about — air pollution.
“In and around cities there can be pollution in the air and this makes a difference. So ideally take the photos ‘out of town’ on a location with no light or air pollution,” advises Colorpix.
In addition to moon part, your location and the climate, time of night time can have an effect on outcomes. Even capturing in the morning darkness (versus the night darkness) could make a distinction, as the photographer of this shot, Gary Lamprecht, explains:
“I went for the morning shot for a couple of reasons. I wanted to see if any light changed as the moon reflects the sun towards pre-dawn versus post-dusk. I think the bigger factor is the light noise was less as it was so early in the morning. During an earlier evening shot, there was more light noise from vehicles, houses, and other building lights.”
“The other reason was the air was brisk and the sky looked so clear that I felt the image would have to be clearer. Sometimes you get that ‘haze’ in the air that just seems to be a carry over from the daytime hours that the night seems to clear up.”
“Basically, I just wanted to see if the different hour changed the final result. I took 11 pictures the evening before and just two the following morning. From my camera preview in the morning, I felt they were indeed clearer.”
