Trying out my Canon SX110IS digital camera, I captured the moon tonight at its closest approach in years.
I decided to give myself a quality camera for Christmas. I took a photography course in college and enjoyed doing B&W film photos, but I now enjoy taking color photos with digital cameras and applying what I learned in school. You have to gain a knowledge of light values as restricted by shutter speeds and f-stops in order to arrive at a workable combination to take night photos. A tripod to steady the camera is absolutely necessary at shutter speeds of 1/30 sec or slower.
