Moon photography is a subset of astrophotography — photography of space and celestial objects. As you’ll discover, there’s much more to taking a photo of the moon and night sky than pointing your camera at it.
There are many varieties of lunar photography — full lunar disc capture, crescent moon capture, the moon as part of a landscape, and more. How, when, and where you want to shoot the moon are all important considerations for getting a high-quality shot.
Equipment can vary too. Rami Ammoun, astrophotographer and enthusiast, uses telescope and camera rigs to capture the moon, while photographer Adam Ruggieri uses a camera alone. Moon photography offers an incredible breadth of artistic exploration.
