Partial Lunar Eclipse Photos
Well, it cleared up nicely here and I managed to get up about 4am to grab a few photos. Of course, being at 4am, I wasn’t at my most coherent and looking back at what I got, I could have played with some settings more and probably gotten better results. Still, they aren’t a disaster so here goes.
My first shot was overexposed. Being 4am, I instantly started reducing exposure times and got no more good shots like this. In hindsight, I like this shot since you can see the reddened eclipsed side of the Moon even though the lit side is overexposed. I should have experimented more with this type of shot. It was 4am…that’s my story and I sticking to it.
And I wrapped up the night trying to get an interesting tree in the foreground. I need to invest in a flash with a little more kick to really make this work better (could have done longer exposure or bumped up the ISO but wasn’t thinking clearly because, well, you know).
A good dry run for the big total lunar eclipse later this year!
