Photographing moonrise is a difficult challenge for the landscape photographer. In this video, outdoor photographer, Adam Barker, shows you how he photographs the moon over a Utah mountain.

The full moon sits above a ridge line of trees. Adam meters for the trees, but he has to make sure he doesn’t blow out the moon. His camera anchored vertically to the tripod, he first exposes for the moon, then does a different exposure for the trees. Using the horizontal format, he repeats the procedure. He will put the two images together in post production editing, creating a gorgeous photo.

Venture out with pro shooter, Adam Barker, for ways of photographing moonrise.
