My Photojournalism: The Crescent Moon and Venus on 26th March 2012

My photojurnalism at night sky

The crescent moon and the little tiny Venus in the distance


My photojurnalism of night sky

Click this picture and try to spot Jupiter near on the bottom right. It's not as bright as Venus but visible still though.

Another shoot of the crescent moon and Venus


I took those pictures yesterday (26th March 2012) at around 8 pm after read this article: Moon and Venus closest in west after sunset March 26. I tried to shoot them again in one hour later but unfortunately I couldn’t get nice pictures due to my lack of the equipments. I only used my Kodak Easy Share C713.

This post is to continuing my previous one here.

Hope you enjoy it! πŸ™‚

  1. Mbak ijin simpen ya, mau dijadiin wallpaper.
    Ternyata kamera kita sama, tapi gambar yang kuambil slalu biasa saja hasilnya.

    • Silakan, mbak Naniknara πŸ™‚

      Soal hasil jepret yg terlihat biasa saja, maka ada kutipan sbb:

      β€œIt is an illusion that photos are made with the camera, they are made with the eye, heart & head.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson

      Plus ada dapat dari teman kutipan dari Robert Cappa bhw:

      If your pictures are not good enough, perhaps it’s because you are not close enough.

      Semoga kutipan2x tsb bisa membantu utk menghasilkan gambar2x yg bagus kelak, mbak πŸ™‚

      Tetap semangat! πŸ™‚

    • Don’t give up! Keep trying! πŸ˜€

      A friend of mine who loves photography as well once told me that it’s easier to take a picture of the sun than a moon. Perhaps it’s because the low light conditions at night. That’s why we need a tripod though I just used the rocks barrier at the car park. =)) Still shaking sometimes though.

        • Good for you! Actually I had bought a very cheap tripod for a time being, only one pound. But when a friend of mine tried to my camera, he broke it! So I just bought it to be broken hahahahahahahahahahahaa…

          Well, that would very good if you could have a telescope as well. You won’t regret it! πŸ˜‰
          Wish you get the best deal!

Kejoraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa .. *gubrak, pengsan* :))

    • WOW! Thank you very much for your comment and support, Mark! πŸ™‚ Credit to a friend of mine who taught me how to create a composition when taking pictures of the moon. He said it’s good to include another object surround it. πŸ™‚

      Thank you very much, Mark! πŸ™‚
