I forgot to mention this in photo class tonight and thought I’d include the rest of you guys who read my blog and took my classes this year!
Nightfall Sunday June 23rd this year will be the Super Moon where the moon will appear largest as it is closest to the Earth in its orbit (no big deal I’m told, happens once a year…)!

I’d suggest using the “Moonie f11 Rule” http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/18797622 a strong tripod, and your longest focal length lens for best results. Moonrises for this and other locations can be found with this app I use regularly: http://photoephemeris.com/
Oddly enough, it’s free for the desktop, yet $8.99 for the mobile app, but in the long run, definitely worth it if you are travelling!
I’ll be in New Mexico then and hoping for a clear evening!
It was really fun having you in class and I hope you received real value from attending my class(es)!
Have a great summer, keep shooting, and remember as the song says: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mih8yuYyIA
