Well, this is a bit different, normally, I would have got my shot, done the necessary post in Lightroom (All my shots have at least some editing due to shooting solely in RAW format) and then sat for an hour or two staring at the keyboard wondering what the hell to write. Well, tonight’s a little different.
I’ve actually ventured into Photoshop without the aid of a Youtube video and made a picture! (Cue the balloons and trumpets please…) I’ve stacked 102 quarter of a second exposures (that took up the normal keyboard staring 2 hours) which eventually equated to a 25 and a half second exposure of the clouds and moon above Mere Down this evening into one image, the moon was blurred so I imported the blurred image and one of the 102 back into Photoshop as layers, created a layer mask on one of the originals and painted the sharp moon through. Not one of my best shots but believe me, it’s a milestone!
One of the 102And you’d be surprised how far the Moon moves in less than half a minute!
