There are few tips from IBTimes Singapore for the photographers, who will be looking for a perfect picture.

If you are using your phone, then you must turn off the flash which will help to grab the ambience of the moment.
- If you are planning to click photos with your iPhone, then carry a tripod too. If you don't have a tripod then place yourself on a wall or a solid object such as a street lamp or tree to make your body more stable.
- Usually, people who want to capture the big moon and want to make it the main attraction of the image, you can use the digital cameras with focal lengths of 400mm, 500mm and beyond.
