HOW TO CAPTURE UNIQUE SHOTS OF THE BLOOD MOON

A rare blood moon (a red-tinged lunar eclipse) will be visible over much of Europe on 21 January. Read landscape photographer David Noton’s 5 tips to capture standout shots of the phenomenon. “The most evocative and genuine use of the moon in landscapes results from situations when the light on the moon balances with the twilight in the surrounding sky,” says David. “Mastering the shutter speed of your camera is integral to capturing the moon without blur. How fast will depend on your focal length, but if you’re filling the frame with the moon using a long lens you’ll need a shutter speed of about 1/250 sec.”
