Shayne McGuire captured the Snow Moon in Antarctica this weekend. The name ‘Snow Moon’ has its origin from Native American tribes. Yesterday evening she experienced that everything lined perfectly up. In addition, the moon took on a beautiful red color tone as it hovered above the horizon.

The photo and video capabilities of phones getting better and better with each new device that seems to be released, so more and more people are taking photography and filmmaking on their phones a little more seriously. Even if they are using “real cameras” for much of their work, they still want to get the most out of their phones that they can.
With this in mind, Moondog Labs, creator of those anamorphic smartphone lenses, has release the Multi-Camera Filter Mount. It’s designed for the iPhone 11 and other phones that have bayonet mount cases available and gives you a standard 52mm filter thread to screw on regular neutral density and polarizing filters.
Photographers with an affection for the moon are in for a huge treat in 2020. According to astronomy experts, the year will offer thirteen full moons. That includes two supermoons and even a blue moon.
October, in particular, will be exciting. The month promises two full moons, with the second one being a blue moon. If you have already started planning for Halloween, you may consider changing plans – the blue moon will appear right on Halloween. In any event, a blue moon will assuredly add an eerie quality to Halloween. For moon enthusiasts, depending on the weather, it will undoubtedly be a trick or treat evening.
There are some people whose work you follow that just makes you sit up and pay attention whenever they post something new. One such photographer is Andrew McCarthy who creates incredible images of the moon, often made from stacking tens of thousands (or more) individual photographs together.
In his latest creation, Andrew took 100,000 photos of the moon to cut through our hazy and turbulent Earth atmosphere to see such colour and beauty, with an extremely impressive level of detail.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission when astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong set their feet on the Moon’s surface. If you’d like to own your own piece of the historic moment, now you can. Original NASA red number prints are available for auction at Sotheby’s, some of them starting at as low as $50.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. On 20 July 1969 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong set their feet on the surface of the moon. And in 2019, many people have paid tribute to them in all sorts of ways. Hungarian photographer Lampert Benedek was one of these, and he did it in his recognizable fashion: with LEGO.
Lampert used the popular toy bricks to recreate the iconic photos of the Apollo 11 mission. He kindly shared his work with us, as well as some backstory. And since he used mainly practical effects, the BTS images are as fun as the finished ones.
When Blackmagic announced the new Pocket Cinema Camera 6K, they did something very different from the launch of the Pocket 4K. They actually started shipping them only a couple of days afterwards. That means they’re already starting to get into peoples hands, and nobody’s complaining about being on backorder.
One filmmaker who’s managed to get his hands on one already is my friend Jesse Watson. You might remember Jesse from his stunning Space X launch timelapse last year, which was picked up by Google for their Year in Search 2018 video, garnering over 113,000,000 views. This time, he’s pointing his camera right towards the full moon.
Former NASA intern Gary George recently sold the original footage of the Apollo 11 moon landing at auction house Sotheby’s. He scored $1.82 million from this sale, which is more than 8,000 times more than he originally paid for the footage.
I’ve been fascinated with the idea of incorporating the moon into photos whenever possible. And so, with the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s moon landing on July 20th, I was excited by the possibility to shoot something special for the occasion: Putting a man on the moon. The man here is Ty Johnson, a paramotor pilot, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. As NASA will tell you, getting a man to the moon is harder than it looks. This is how we did it.
You didn’t think that just re-releasing an old press release was all Hasselblad had in store to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landings, did you? Hasselblad has today announced that they will make a new Special Edition matte black version of their upcoming 907X camera body and CFV II 50c digital back.
