Today is the day of the eclipse! I’m still uncertain how I want to photograph the event. Indeed, even though I purchased my eclipse glasses from B&H Photo 1 I’m not even certain I want to trust them. Profiteers have done a huge disservice to those who wanted to enjoy this marvelous event by filling people’s minds with FUD. I am probably going to take some stills of the event using the solar film sheet I acquired, but given tracking issues I won’t be able to take a time lapse.
I do, however, still want to explore time-lapse photography, and have continued my experiments. Yesterday, I headed down to the river and and captured the sunset. I messed up my settings, so there’s a good deal of flicker. I also need to begin making more time to explore this technique. It takes hours to create a time-lapse of any decent length. Still, even these few second videos are compelling enough to keep my experiments going.
