For those of you who might want to take a photo of the “super moon” at Perigee tonight

Stop Shooting Auto!

If you’re in a hurry you can ignore the discussion and skip straight to the summary

moonSince a couple of people have requested this, here’s the Stop Shooting Auto! lesson in shooting the moon.

Back in the olden days, when cameras were carved out of stone and didn’t have whizbang light meters and dozens of confusing exposure dials, photographers had to choose their settings manually. In fact, my first 35mm camera, a Kodak Pony IV, had printed inserts that went into a slot in the back of the camera to help you pick your settings. For bright sunlight you used this, for cloudy bright you used that, etc. And horror of horrors, there was no Photoshop– if you screwed up the exposure, you had to try to fix it in a (gasp) darkroom. And that was if you were lucky– most people just lived with whatever bad photos they took.
