Photo Q&A

1: Full Moon

Shooting a full moon, I'm getting all white and no details, what is the best way to photograph the full moon?
- Larry Smith

ANSWER 1:
Common question. Start at f/11, ISO 100, shutter speed 100th (or 125t,h if you don't have 100th), and raise shutter or ISO as needed while matching the correct aperture.
Search "moon" in the Q&A and you'll get a bunch of stuff for it.

- Gregory LaGrange
