Paintings or photographs are appropriate media for Chicago, Moonday art. Paintings will take longer to create. Creating Moonday photographs is a quicker process.
Choosing the photographic method, artists will need cameras, film or digital. Telephoto lenses that are 135 mm or longer are the best lenses for getting close-up, Moon photos. However, telescopes that have adapters to which you can attach your cameras are the best.
In Chicago, on some days, the Moon appears in the sky during daylight hours. Like during night hours, our Moon goes through phases: crescent, half, gibbous and full. To make the Moon dramatic, you can photograph it with unusual filters.
Since our Moon is visible from any place on Earth, Chicago’s Moon is usually unremarkable. To make Chicago’s Moons special, and qualify as art, you need to place it with Chicago scenes or Chicago celebrities. The Moon’s reflection in glass windows is one, good option.
