As you may recall, I was unable to acquire a solar lens for my camera so I was only able to shoot totality. If you were a first time shooter of an eclipse like myself then it was possible that a few “mistakes” were made in shooting. I had my 200mm lens set up on a sturdy tripod, the shutter release was in place, settings were dialed in (I did 7 shot bracketing) and the lens cap was off. So did it all go well? Not quite. When the diamond ring appeared and everyone starting cheering I had a serious excitement attack resulting in my brain “forgetting” how to adjust the head of my tripod; just too excited.
Once that was rectified it was fire away with the occasional pause to change the shutter speed. I want to do a photo merge of my images but as I’ve never done that before I have a new skill to learn. This is my first effort using a 3 shot merge of shutter speeds 1/125, 1/500 and 1/250.
Nice! I got to see it but in NH, it was not in totality. You did well. We get anotehr try in 2024.
Thanks. I did bracketing from 1 second up to 1/2000 so the images vary wonderfully. In 2024 it passes right over our house.
It was far out man!
Beautiful shot! I’m not familiar with your 3-shot shutter image. I’d like to learn more. Thank you for sharing!
Thanks, Mickey! I’d be happy to help you if I can. Drop me an email if you want.
Will do! Thank you!
Nice pic! Congrats!
Thank you 🙂
I say, you’re a quick learner. 😉 Fabulous work!
Thank you. I didn’t want to mess this opportunity up.
