Eclipse December 10, 2011

We had an eclipse this morning in Vancouver, but clouds moved in before it was full. Was anyone able to capture the full eclipse?

Nice shot Brian. It was too cloudy down here in North Texas.

Last night's didn't make it here in the East. Living on the lee of a Great Lake, we don't have all that many cloudless nights anyway. The last eclipse I managed to shoot was in 2004. A bunch of individual frames assembled in Photoshop.

Too foggy here too Brian.....most the pictures I've seen from this part of the world look a lot like yours, which is a great shot!

I broke my knee cap the day before (Friday) so though i'd planned to set up my camera, given the fog, just laid in bed and watched it get darker out!

Lunar Eclipse Dec 10, 2011

There are some wonderful pictures of the eclipse here:

I especially like this shot:

Jon: Perhaps you can give us some help in getting ready for the next eclipse in 2014! Your photos of the 2004 eclipse are wonderful!

I can tell you what not to do - I didn't plan on the moon moving quite as much as it did over the period of the eclipse. It went behind a tree just after the full shadowing (when it turned red). I had to move the camera location & managed to turn the camera. If you look at the craters you will find they "jumped" in the remaining photos. I should fix it but never got around to it.

As to suggestions - I used a 200mm lens, used the "Sunny 16" rule (a basic rule for setting a camera exposure in bright sunlight - f: 16 @ a shutter speed equal to the ISO.) Since the moon is reflected sunlight, that is a good starting point. I also bracketed a couple of stops above & below. I shot a group of images every 20 minutes or so over the entire eclipse. I did have to open up quite a bit for the full eclipse - the dull red color is quite a bit dimmer than the rest of the lighting.

As to assembling, it was basically cut & paste of individual shots into one frame.

It is becoming rather rare to see film based pictures; did you take this great one recently? Zone system was a little harder than digital HDR but there is no digital system capable of matching the resolution from 4x5 yet. I switched totally to digital and my Hasselblad and Nikon film systems are collecting dust for the last few years. I am dreaming to get a digital back but it will take a while for prices to become reasonable, if ever, at least for no pro. Great picture.

George.

Yes, film is becoming quite a rarity these days. This was shot over Thanksgiving weekend, using "old school" HDR ... proper metering.

George, you might as well give up on a digital back for your Hassy, they're just too pricey and the full frame DSLR cameras can do just as well a job.

I'm glad you liked the image. Thanks.

My dear son bought me a new Nikon D5100 kit for Christmas. I was floored! Had to go out and snap some pictures with it right away, and the kids wanted to go play on the playground behind our house anyhow. So here is my granddaughter, Sophia, in mid-swing. Not high quality, but I liked her smile.

I have spent several hours looking at the photos in the thread and I have to say there are some breathtakingly beautiful photographs here. For those who missed my introduction thread, I have been a pro photographer off and on for the last 25 years. I returned to college to finish the degree I neglected in my youth and am now a 56-year-old junior majoring in photo communications. Here are a few samples of what I have done over the years.
