Pink Moon 2022: 10 tips to take photos with your smartphone
Find the right spot
Find a dark, clear and high spot without any obstruction. Make sure that there’s no obstruction in the view such as wires or polls, etc.
Use tripod to get a stable and blur-free shot
Avoid using flash, it can ruin your shot
Make sure to turn off the flash as the moon is 384,400 kilometers from the earth and the flash will not make any difference. Instead it will ruin your shot by illuminating the dust particles and surrounding.
Use HDR to capture slightly better and image details
Make sure that the HDR mode is enabled. HDR usually boosts the image quality and this can help you get better moon shots.
Use built-in timer or remote shutter
Always use the built-in timer or a remote shutter to trigger the shutter in such situations. This will help you get clear, sharp and shake-free shots.
Use optical zoom
Digital zoom reduces the image quality. So make sure to only use optical zoom. Most modern smartphones offer at least 2x or 3x optical zoom sensors in their smartphones.
Use full resolution that the smartphone offers
Most modern smartphones come with up to high resolution sensors like 64MP or 50MP or 108MP sensors. If available, switch to full resolution mode and then capture the shot.
Moon is the subject, focus on that
While shooting, tap on the moon and lock the focus by long pressing on it. This will ensure that the moon is in focus.
Reduce the exposure
Tap on the moon to bring up the exposure control and then reduce it to minimum.
Create timelapse video
You can also record a timelapse video to get a cinematic feel.
