Went to an airport this evening and was fortunate to catch this jet with the "super moon".

From one photographer to another, may I ask what your camera settings were for that shot?  I've tried taking pictures of the full moon, but it is usually too bright and I can't get the texture.  What is your secret?
Sooper-Deviant Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2014
When I do moon shots at night, my cameras are usually set at ISO 50 or 100; f-stop between 5.6 and 9; shutter speed of 1/100 sec. or slower; and +/- exposure compensation adjustment (when necessary).  It's not a secret but rather personal preference based on actual visibility/cloud condition at the time of each shot.  Hope this helps.  :)

I always have trouble shooting in the dark.  Does the lower ISO really help that much?

That depends on what you're shooting in the dark and how your camera is held...  Generally lower ISO settings provide less noise but shooting in low-light conditions may require higher ISO to achieve optimum shutter speed.  If you're going for longer exposure shots with your camera on a tripod, then go with lower ISO for a sharper image.

Thanks for the advice!  I guess that I'll just experiment.

I have a good camera and no skills. Did it take a special lens for this? I have just a standard 35-55 and all my moon shots look like a dime in the sky. I am saving up for a zoom lens and reading books but would appreciate any friendly tips.

Unfortunately a 55mm max zoom won't get you much detail of the moon... Once you have better zoom power, with your new telephoto zoom lens, you should have no problem capturing similar shots.
