The sound of one hand clapping: First, I seriously had no idea that the moon rose that quick, and I say that as someone who has spent time photographing/recording the moon, albeit on a much more amateur level than this guy. I was quite amazed by how quickly it rose.Secondly, anyone have any idea how this guy would have exposed for the shot before the moon appeared?/Vid was awesome
maxx2112: The guy who did the video was answering questions in the comments section on that site . . . if you ask him, he'll probably tell you.
Dafodude: He does say in the description that it took a lot of trial and error, so I guess he'd narrowed down his exposure settings from previous attempts.Also, I think the apparent speed of the moon rise is a parallax effect, because the people being silhouetted are 2.1km away from the camera.
