Just A Phase by aquapell Just A Phase by aquapell
One of my best friends drop-shipped a Sigma 50-500mm with a 2X converter to me for testing.

Here's a test shot I emailed him.

I love this lens.

okay.gotta did you do that?
I mean that I don't know about cameras at all, but I've been trying to take a pic of the moon, but with no results.
What kind of camera has the incredible zoom?
Sorry to ask such an "amateur" question.

I'm new to photography, but I found this a while ago, and it has really been a motivating factor for me. This is definitely a favorite for me.

I would really like to use this picture for our first demo of our black metal band Exuro Sanctus. I already have our logo photoshoped into the left of the moon and would like to purchase the rights to use it that way. If you would like to see the picture, I can send you it. Just email me at I don't need any concrete prints, only the rights to the digital image to add our logo to it. Please let me know as soon as you can if this can be arranged. Thanks alot!

I love this photo, I love it, I love it!!! :D

crypticFallon Featured By Owner May 27, 2005
Wow, beautiful! Hey, if you ever get time do you think you could give me some pointers on taking moon shots? I've tried, and the moon shows up as a really bright circle...that's it. I know my camera is capable of it, plus I have a telephoto lens...I just lack talent! :X
aquapell Featured By Owner May 28, 2005
:lol: don't feel bad, I did the same thing by over exposing the shot and not keeping the camera solidly still during the shutter release. the trick is to underexpose the shot a bit and use the 'shutter up' mode on your camera if you have it. this causes the camera to move less while the shutter is opening and closing.

hopefully this has been helpful to you.

Dax48 Featured By Owner May 19, 2005
Very nice ! Did you shoot this one at 500mm ?

Maybe a bit of unsharp masking would yield a slightly crisper image.
aquapell Featured By Owner May 19, 2005
no, my buddy came and picked that lens up right after i took the moon shot. this was shot with a sigma 24-70mm F2.8 macro.
i took your advice and sharpened it a bit. thanks!!
