According to his CV from his website, Laurent Laveder is a computer guy, literate in all those computer languages that make meeker souls weep and mumble in corners. But when the moon comes out, Laveder becomes a different creature altogether.
A long-time astronomy enthusiast, Laveder is an astrophotographer who has figured out a way to lasso the moon. His photography project, entitled Moon Games, is a series of shots that are focused around the moon, a whimsical rethinking of our nearest celestial body—as a lightbulb, a clock, a balloon.
The moon can be harvested, snipped, or tossed between playmates. Using relatively slow shutter speeds (the moon is actually very bright so don’t overexpose!) and a 70-300 mm lens, Laveder is able to capture the moon in all her shining glory, in an array of phases, including lunar eclipses.
