Tonight we will witness the last Supermoon of the year, so what is it and how to photograph the Supermoon?

This was the topic of a conversation on Clubhouse last Monday as part of our Astrophotography Club.
I was asked to talk about my experience and give some tips on getting these photos right as, coincidentally, I am running a moon series on my Instagram @fabienb. Plenty of moon shots there, and not just Supermoon.

Together with the other three London-based photographers, we talked about how to photograph the supermoon for over an hour and answered a few questions from the audience.

Myself, I’m fresh from being featured at both the Travel and Nature Photographer Of The Year exhibitions.
Mara is an Astrobiologist with a passion for Photography (and the UK Landscape Photographer Of The Year 2021).
George is also an award-winning photographer and a fabulous guitarist.
And Priya is a Travel Content Creator who went on an amazing journey through all the 7 continents!
It was a really amazing panel.

At the time of publishing the video, not everyone in the audience had given me publishing rights. So I left a few bits out and published a second video afterwards.
However, if you want to hear all the next conversations in full and don’t want to miss any other appointments, head over to the Astrophotography Club and give it a follow.
And of course follow me there as well!

Here, we covered gear, settings, planning and also mentioned timelapse photography of moonset and moonrise. Which I have published on my channel and this blog a few times.
