Still practicing for the upcoming Annular Solar Eclipse.
I’m working on getting the exposure right using Live View, and reading lots and lots of articles written by other photographers about how to go about photographing it.
This is a bit blurry you’ll notice. I think this is due to all the atmosphere between me and the sun;wind, dust, clouds, etc. This morning we have clouds in the sky.
Here’s an article I liked that has handy settings charts for a good starting base. Here’s my friend Steven’s advice on Solar Filters. Don’t try to watch or photograph this event without proper protection for your eyes and camera! I use this Solar Filter.
I’ll be driving with friends 4-5hours away from home to view this event. Will you be traveling to view the Annular Solar Eclipse?
