Shooting the Lunar Eclipse
So, I went out to Deception Pass tonight in hopes of getting some interesting shots of the Lunar Eclipse. I found a nice spot overlooking the water, where the moon was suppose to rise,
Got my camera all set up…
Realized I was missing a pretty nice Sunset behind me…
Then finally, the moon showed up! Sadly, it was too faint to see near the horizon that I had set up for… so just took some solo shots of it. I learned that the moon is pretty dim during an eclipse.
And that as the shadow starts to leave, the contrast makes it almost impossible to shoot with my current gear, barring a large amount of stacking and blending in photoshop.
Was an interesting experience and fun to shoot.
