During the incredible eclipse which took place in December, photographers everywhere were attempting to record the event. Some unfortunately had atmospheric conditions, particularly in the Los Angeles area, which rendered the event unseeable. Photographers in other areas set their gear up and shot images of the eclipse even if the weather wasn’t completely optimal. In other parts of California, the mysterious eclipse was recorded under mysterious circumstances by a mysterious photographer or two.
A blog entitled Light Photographic Workshops which supports a Web site featuring a nice group of instructors who don’t always include an author name on their blog. The writer was able to capture their eerie, beautiful series of images of the eclipse in progress with their Induro CT313 tripod, which kept things steady, which is always necessary with lunar photography, but particularly so with overcast conditions – even allowing their daughter to help make exposures with a cable release!
We’re happy to have discovered this group of shooters, their educational efforts, and their great blog posts. Definitely keep an eye on their work. Lots of good information seems to be regularly posted. If you’re planning on being in or near Los Osos, California, check out some of their extensive courses offered. We bet they’ll take the mystery out of your photographic questions!
