Oh there’s so much I want to share about this incredible experience! It was a lot of fun to travel down with the Parfitts and photograph and experience the entire event with friends down there in North Carolina.
For starters, you can see some of the best photos from the eclipse at http://www.lenspiration.photos/eclipse
There’s so much I would do differently next time! The collage showing the different phases of the eclipse was only possible due to the Parfitts forethought in buying the solar filter film ahead of time (and generosity in letting us other photographers use some of their leftovers!), and the “super advanced” Photoshop merging technique worked really well for the HDR merge allowing you to see in a single photo the incredible dynamic range of light that was still surrounding totality.
I’m dying to see the photos from all of you guys! Did you capture anything you liked? Can you share them here?
