CNET Australia shares tips on photographing the Supermoon
This Sunday, June 23rd, the moon will be closer to earth than at any point during the year. It just so happens that on Sunday the moon will be full, too, creating what is commonly known as a 'Supermoon' which if there are no clouds in the way, will appear larger and brighter than normal. A great opportunity for some backyward astrophotography, in other words. CNET Australia has published a short article containing tips for capturing this Sunday's Supermoon in all its glory.

Among the tips shared by CNET.com are obvious things like using a tripod and cable release to prevent camerashake (although we would not recommend long exposures, since this will probably result in blur as the moon moves across the sky), and also compositional advice.
Remember that even though the moon will look larger and brighter to the naked eye, you can't tell the increased size in a photograph unless you include a point of reference somewhere on or near the horizon. In the photo above, photographer Robin Ohia has included human-scale objects on the horizon to give the supermoon scale.
If you're out shooting on Sunday night and you feel like showing off the results, remember that you can share images and advice with other community members in our forums. Good luck!
