Oct 8, 2014 Lunar Eclipse

Oct 8, 2014 Lunar Eclipse

A co-worker happened to mention that this Lunar Eclipse was going to happen the next morning. I decided to get up early and see if I could capture some decent pictures. I used my Canon T3i and EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM with 2X extender mounteed to a tripod. I found a place on top of a parking deck that happened to have one bank of lights turned off. The settings for this picture (click to enlarge) are: ISO 1250, F/5.6 and roughly 8/10″ exposure.

Right as the eclipse was reaching the peak clouds rolled in and I was unable to get the ending.

I am happy, but not thrilled with the pictures I took. I end up with a lot of noise and not as clear as I would like. There is software to help with this but I haven’t figured out how to use it yet, and this time I didn’t take the reference frames that would have helped. You might not be able to tell here but having the camera take as many pictures as I did resulted in a hot pixel that turned magenta. Next time…

I enjoy photography beyond these wonderful shots of Hot Wheels cars that you see each week. My main focus has been on macro-photography, extreme close-up photography. Some of the pictures that I have taken are posted on this website. You can find them with the photography tag.

In addition to the personal pictures, I have begun to do sports photography. Most of my work is posted at Pick Axe Digest. Since I want to expand on this work I have created a website targeted at my photography endeavors. At http://photo.harbn.com you will find a portfolio of my favorite work.

My intention is to expand my focus beyond Charlotte 49ers sports to anything I can get my hands into. If you have any leads, please share.
