Going Against the Grain

Going against the grain
 
When we were at the VLA(Very Large Array) the other day, the moon was very bright and it worked as if we would have attempted to “light paint” the antenna. There were 40 folks on the field trip and all shooting with the moon at their backs. I went against the grain and conventional wisdom, and shot towards the moon, even including it in my frame. I thought it worked out very well personally!
