Calgary Skyline Supermoon

A Vicious Cycle (or Circle): A situation in which the apparent solution of one problem in a chain of circumstances creates a new problem and increases the difficulty of solving the original problem (thanks a million thefreedictionary.com). That’s what we got here. In this case we’re talking about after dark photography. Simply, we don’t shoot many night photographs because the results are not up snuff, so as a result we don’t shoot many night photographs. Lather, rinse, repeat.

The photos seen here…they were captured not all that far from BIGDoer.com HQ. Presenting a lame attempt at shooting the Calgary skyline after dark, which just begs to be photographed by the way, our results not doing it a smidgen of justice. Nothing spectacular here, certainly not up to publication standards (yet here I am publishing them). Questionable focus and colour balance, too many low lights, a blown out “Super Moon”, which was spectacular but looks like a 100w bulb with no definition. And these were the best ones. Sigh…

This post is in no way related to what we’ve been speaking of…

Short Subjects: reports that for any number of reasons are brief in nature. They might be updates to older articles, previews of posts planned or not yet published, brief snippets of things that don’t fit in anywhere else or subjects that are so obscure that information on them can’t be found. Or sometimes we just ramble on about Lord knows what.

If you need any more information on what we talked about here, by all means contact us!

Date of adventure: February, 2017.
Location: Calgary, AB.

Supermoon Calgary

The Supermoon was just that, super…but we didn’t do it justice.

Calgary Skyline Supermoon

Ditto the the skyline which begs to be shot…so/so results at best.

It’s hard to photograph the moon and a skyline. You don’t realize how bright a full moon is until you point a camera at it! That’s why the majority of smartphone photos of the moon are white discs with no detail.

Your best bet is to take two shots, one of the moon properly exposed and one of the skyline, and blend them together in your favourite image editing program.

I really like your skyline! Calgary has a very photogenic skyline.

Doesn’t look so bad to me, but I am a bit biased.
