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…
