I concentrated more and more on the compositions and not on trying something to do with the manual setting of the camera. I would have to take about 20 pictures before I kind of got it right, changing the AV and Shutter speed setting multiple times.

And finally the bulb mode setting for the moon

Highly recommending the food blog. They are the nicest people I have come across in terms of sharing information and their knowledge around. It was an eye opening read about the income they earn and the various contributing factors.

The example page that is listed in this website was enough for me to get started more solid than what I was before.
