Full moon photography – tips please


Nikon D7000, Nikkor 85mm 1.4G (ISO400, f4, 1/400) – used tripod.

Photog skills are rusty. Another skill to sharpen during this corona-tine.

Any tips for capturing moon shots?  And, in the foreground I had trees.  If I adjusted settings to see the evergreen trees the moon was too bright and washed out.  To get the craters in the moon I couldn’t figure out how to also include the trees.

Appreciate any of your photog tips!  Thanks!

    Moon shots with an 85mm just isn’t going to give you the results you want. I had a 300mm on a D7200 (effective 450mm) and the image was still small. With a P900 Nikon at 1000mm I could get a nicer image. Try shooting earlier … not when the sky it pitch black.
