Although the shot I will be taking will involve a portrait, I expect the landscape folks are experts on this question. I will be shooting a lit subject standing on a hill top and the rising moon behind her. I want to make the moon as large as possible, larger than my subject if possible. I believe there is an illusion that makes the moon look bigger when it is close to the horizon and that is perfect for the shot. Anyone have any thought on how well a 600 or 1000 mm equivalent lens will make the moon? I expect I want to use a 1.7 teleconverter on the 400 mm lens on a nikon crop camera to get the maximum possible distance from my subject. My light triggers should work up to 300 feet. I am guessing the further I am from my subject, the larger the moon will appear and using as long a glass as possible would help. I can control my strobe power from camera to dial it in for the first shot then adjust in the changing light. Will initially do a silhouette or 2 then turn on the lights. The sun will be setting behind me as the moon rises. Tonight the moon was about in the perfect position at 6 to 6:30 pm. Any thought if it will rise earlier or later tomorrow night. I don't think my sun seeker program gives that info. Any suggestions are appreciated.
