    Look back through the group - this was discussed at some length a couple
    of months ago. Basically you treat the moon as a well lit daylight scene -
    because that's what it is. What you're seeing is a very will lit daytime
    from a few hundred thousand miles.

    Hey everyone,

    I've been doing the Photo thing for about a year. My dad gave me his
    Nikon FG and I just started shooting, learned the basics pretty fast
    and now I've been putting out some - not to be all ME ME ME ish -
    stellar work.

    I've slowly gotten more and more into Surrealism inspired by an
    accidental 'tripped out' photo I printed (I love accidents) once and
    have had some ideas using a full moon, either way I would like a
    straight photo of the full moon for my wall...

    I wasn't able to get a hold of some film for the eclipse (DAMN), but
    did take two rolls of film on the full moon the next night, I tried
    once a couple months back with 3 extra exposures and just snapped some
    random ones on a tripod but they were overexposed.

    The two rolls I took last week I just sat outside in my drive way with
    a 500 mm lens and shot a shit load of random exposures all with
    different shutter speeds, f stops and all and am fairly confident that
    at least 2 or 3 will come out good.

    All I'm wondering is if anyone knows the FG well (if it even matters)
    and has some advice for some 'for sure' shots of the moon next time

    You can check my Digital stuff out (none of my surreal stuff, that's
    all with film) at:
