Eclipse Monday

Here’s my best photos, taken with the iPhone.

I used the eclipse glasses to take the dark photo, at the beginning of the eclipse here in NYC.

The next ones came out blurry, then I tried to take one without the glasses. I forgot to zoom in, but you can see a little sliver if the eclipse.

It didn’t turn as dark as I thought it would be. I thought it might sort of be twilight-dark at the peak here, but there wasn’t much difference in the lighting.

As we left, I took another one. Can’t remember if this was directly with the lens, or the selfie mode.

But I see a little blue dot, with an eclipse. Is that the moon? And the bight ball in front is the sun? Still trying to figure it out … What do you think?

How was your Eclipse Monday? Got any good shots of it?

Moon Shots

Late posting, I know.  This is now history.

But this is the first time that I’ve been able to photograph the moon and get a decent picture of it.  yaaayyy!!

One of tips that I read this time around was to shoot in black and white.  Shooting in colour and then changing it to black and white during edits would not bring out the full details, the tip said.  So this time, I switched to black and white, manual settings, and voila!  Well, it also helped that I used a super-zoom lens and a monopod.

Unfortunately, there were clouds rolling across the sky …

Well, maybe it was the beginning of the lunar eclipse and I didn’t know it?

Anyway, the clouds completely covered the moon after about two minutes, and that was it for the rest of the night.

But I got my picture of the super moon this time.
