Yesterday, I hosted another photography workshop at the Iwo Jima Memorial to witness the Super Full Moon over Washington DC. The Iwo Jima Memorial and Netherlands Carillon are very popular spots to witness moonrises as they both offer eastern exposures and a view over Washington D.C., including the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial.
When shooting the full moon, the optimal conditions are not necessarily a cloudless sky, but more so some sparsely placed high clouds at sunset. This would allow the light to catch color in the clouds as the moon rises in it’s orange color. Luckily, last night we got just that! Not a super vibrant sunset/moonrise, but a calming cyan and magenta combination.
Comments and shares appreciated! Thanks!
