Full Moon on EOS R

I started using this little app on my MacBook Pro that lets me know the current status of the moon. I knew it was going to be full moon today, June 6, but I didn’t need the app to tell me. One step outside my room and I see the full moon reigning over the darkness of midnight.

I took a picture with the iPhone 11’s Night Mode, which came out great, actually.

But then I thought, what if I tried this with the 100mm macro lens?

Don’t get me wrong, 100mm is nothing for photographing the moon. But it did capture a little bit of the moon. I imported it into Photoshop, did the usual adjustments, and cropped into the moon. As you can guess, it was blurry and the image dimension was small.

So, I opened Pixelmator Pro and took advantage of the Machine Learning Super Resolution that lets me blow up the image to a larger size. While it’s not flawless, I’m happy with how the end result turned out to be. A little tweak here and there back into Photoshop (because I haven’t mastered Pixelmator Pro yet) and I’m left with this beautiful picture of the moon.

As someone who is fascinated by all things space, the moon is always intriguing to me. I can’t help but become a little bit poetic when looking at the moon.

How lonely must it feel if I somehow ended up on the moon?

  1. Great photo bud
    You should try and photograph the moon when it’s at a crescent (waxing or waning).
    The angle of the light really adds contrast to surface features such as craters.
    But, like I said, it’s a good photo.
    Just so’s you know, if you have any questions on how to use your Canon camera, you should ask the guys and gals at Canon’s new Live Chat.
    They really know their onions and have helped me when I’ve found myself in a pickle.

    • Hi Richard!

      Thanks for your comment. I haven’t taken photos of the moon before so I’m certainly new to this. Thanks for your advice. 🙂 I’ll try taking another one when the moon is waxing or waning.
