Photographing the New Orleans Supermoon in 2017

Zack Smith Photography Workshops invites you to a special one-night-only Super Moon Photography Workshop in a unique and exciting partnership with the French Market Corporation and Crescent Park. You will learn how to expose for the bright Super Moon using the necessary gear as well as use smartphone apps to be in the best position! 

I will teach you what lenses to use as well as the exact Aperture and Shutter Speed to capture the most rich detail in the full moon!

At 5:28pm on Sunday, December 3rd the Full Moon will rise on the horizon downriver, and we'll be ready for it. We will enjoy the many viewing areas of the Piety Wharf on the Mississippi River to photograph the ONLY Super Moon of 2017. Your view will be just one mile downriver from the French Quarter, with plenty of safe parking and shooting areas! DO NOT MISS this opportunity to get your BEST Supermoon photographs ever!


We will meet at Piety St. pedestrian bridge on Chartres/Piety in the Bywater. We will walk over the bridge with our gear and head over the wharf.

Shoot Location: Piety St. Wharf at Crescent Park, right in the heart of New Orleans' Bywater neighborhood. SEE MAP
