Eclipse Shooter

Unlike total solar eclipse, partial solar eclipse are harder to shoot. Since it is, well... Partial, there is still too much light radiating from that ball of fire, even at the peak of the eclipse.

 

Too much filters stacked or low quality filters means low image quality. Less or no filter at all, then it is a whiteout overexposured photos. The sky is still too bright for easy snap.

 

I got one ND filter mounted on my Big Beercan, and as you can see, I still need to set both F and Shutter Speed at max end. F40 with 1/4000 at iso 100.

 

And bummer, that small aperture makes every tiny bit details of dirt from the glass of the lens and filter appeared on the photo.

 

Ah well, but it was fun indeed...! :D
