Total Eclipse of the Moon (2011)

Total Eclipse of the Moon. 15.06.2011. Belgrade. A small practice project of mine, I thought it would be interesting enough for the Projects section. Well, I never tried my Canon Rebel XS on an eclipse before the 2011 attempt. Preiously I tried to shoot a moon eclipse with my compact camera Canon A700 and failed big time. Well, I was not satisfied with this attempt also, since there was lot of humidity in the air, leftovers from that morning’s clouds and rain. Anyway, to shoot an eclipse of the Moon is a totally different thing than to shoot it on some other occasion.

I was very happy about my previous shot of the Moon (check it out below, it was taken in May 2011) and thought that I would be able to repeat the quality but I… Just observe this one  as an amateur photo story of the event. Every one of these individual shots of Moon above required entirely different ISO and aperture parameters, so I was rather busy at the time.

The next photo “Touch the Moon” is the other shot of the Moon I am fond of. It was not an eclipse, but the conditions were right. If only I had a 700mm lens…

Fog over Danube

One of my old photos, from January 2008, shot on the banks of the Danube river. The photo came out rather dark (the whole series), so it needed some light correction later on. If only I knew then what I know now… There are a couple more photos of these boats, I might add some later on if I get around to editing them.

Hair

Photographing hair can be done differently. Not everything is for fashion magazines. It’s all about composition.

ps. At the time this website was located on a different domain ( it was moody-cat.com), it’s design was showcased in a Pepin Press reference web design book “Web Design Index 9″ for the year 2010, showing “the good stuff” in the world of web design at the time. This photo was accidentally the one that was the first one at the site when the screenshot was made. Nice!
