Lunal eclipse photography
« on: March 12, 2014, 10:06:17 AM »
This was taken by a guy during a lunar eclipse.  Anybody know how one would get a photo like this?  I hear there is a lunar eclipse coming April 12, at least on the west coast.

I don't know how but I sure hope someone DOES.  I freaking love that!
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Take a shot of a full super moon, apply coloring with Photoshop and place it on a background with stars?   I'd personally add a "flood" to it  also  :)

I am not sure but may just have to expose for the sky itself and then then moon will be like that. Since normally if you expose for the sky the moon will be blown out but because the moon is eclipsed it may be properly exposed if that makes since to anybody else. I have not had the chance to try it so I am not sure that is just my guess.

Here is a different technique than my previous one.

I knew I had something bookmarked but had to find it.

Thanks all!  I think Armychris nailed it.  Because the moon is darker during an eclipse your exposure will pick up the stars.  If it's not cloudy in April I'll give it a shot.
