When our Utah Photo Workshop group arrived at Horseshoe Bend for a sunset photo shoot, I wasn’t feeling it because the lighting was too harsh. So I started flipping my camera at other sights in the area, one of which was the moon rising in the east. But rather than sticking to the lone moon in the sky, I moved around to try and get something else in the frame.
It was the following day as we wrapped up the workshop that we discussed focus stacking, which would have been a great technique to help improve this photo to assure that the moon and the foreground are BOTH in focus. It would have also allowed me to select a foreground object that wasn’t so far away. I guess it’s yet another thing I learned from the workshop and will have to put into practice in the future.
