The full supermoon won’t technically hit the US until Monday morning (12:45 a.m. PT, 3:45 a.m. ET), but most of the best moon photo ops happen around moon rise and moon set — that’ll be around 5 p.m. ET on Saturday and 7:50 a.m. ET on Sunday.
You will need a tripod, proper exposure settings (ISO, aperture, and shutter speed) and other techniques to capture a good photo. Moreover, a successful capture will require some planning as to location, shooting spot, time of day/night, and lens selection. I’ve found that a smartphone app named PhotoPills (about $10) is a great help in planning your shot. Click this link to a PhotoPills tutorial to help get you started. Happy shooting!
