Full moon photography – tips please

may2020-supermoon

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!

My 855mm/1.4g  lens I hadn’t unpacked in over a year since we moved to California!  Yikes!
