Photo Mission: Moonrise in London

I decided I’d try a different format for my YouTube vlog and embark in a Photo Mission to shoot the moonrise in London. To be completely honest, the idea came up while I was editing my footage. But all I filmed made perfect sense in such format, so I decide to put it together this way.

I had not really decided to go out to take the resulting shot, mainly because it was not exactly full moon. In fact, I was home editing some other photos. But my friend Martyn texted me about a possible moonrise alignment with Tower Bridge so I decided to give it a shot (pun intended).
Packed my gear, took the big tripod to counter the wind, and the phone gimbal to film myself on the way to my location.

I think this came out good in terms of rhythm. It’s fast paced while on my way to London Bridge. Then slows down while waiting for the moonrise to happen. Then the exciting timelapse and the photo come out. There’s even a twist at the end, lol!

It’s a fairly different format because I used to show multiple photos in one video when doing street photography POV while here it’s the whole journey to achieve one photo. It’s something that I will do again, with a bit more planning ahead. But let me know in the comments if you enjoyed it!

The Video

Aside of the spectacular photo, I think the whole journey is worth watching. Well, that’s why I made this video in the first place! Anyway, here it is:

In a few weeks it will start getting dark earlier so I may do something at night too… We’ll see! In the meantime, if you want to see more of my moon photography, you can read my posts here, here and here.

‘Till next time! Cheers!
