After seeing an amazing sunset, the moon came out and it was exceedingly bright and full. There was a big bank of clouds moving across the moon and I wanted to capture the details of the moon and the clouds. To get the details of the moon I had to underexpose and to get the clouds I had to overexpose. Therefore, I relied on Lightroom to achieve what I was going for. I used a photo where you could see the clouds and then the adjustment brush on the moon to underexpose it. I like the result as it showcases the contrast of the texture of the moon with the texture of the clouds. For the second photo I wanted to capture the brightness of the moon. With the slow shutter speed I was also able to get a bit of cloud movement as well. I did a clean edit in the goal of playing up with drama of the lighting. What do you think? Thank you for stopping by!
