Photographing the Supermoon

This past week there was a triple threat moon so we got three of our staff members to shoot the moon in three different ways. On January 30th and January 31st, 2018 the moon was a super moon, a blood moon, and a blue moon all at the same time. Brandon, Bruce, and Nick all put their spins on photographing one of the most photographed night skies of the month.


Brandon Used a Sony A200 with an 18-70mm stock lens. These images were taken near the highest altitudes in Bristol County at 390ft. They were taken at 6:30pm on January 30th, 2018.

Bruce's camera of choice for this was his Canon 5D Mark IV. All of these photographs were taken at f/2.8 with a 200mm lens. He made three images varying in time and location.

This image was taken at Chickatabut in the Blue Hills at 6:05am on January 30th, 2018.
