From NASA – Astronaut’s Photography Manual

Although somewhat simple and dated this manual is a relic of the space age that’s coming to an end.

I’m sure photography in the vacuum weightlessness of space has it challenges, especially when orbiting around the earth at 15,000+ MPH.  With that kind of speed your lighting is going to constantly change and you really need to understand your camera.

A lot of the images we associate with space travel were taken with Hasselblad equipment it remains the main tool for ultra serious photographers.

If you’re interested in learning more about exposure settings and composition this 40-page manual is worth checking out.
