Super Blue Moon – San Francisco Eclipse
I had the opportunity to shoot the rare Super Blue Moon Lunar Eclipse this morning in San Francisco. It was quite a beautiful sight and I snapped two photos that I hope you enjoy!
Here is the first image from the night. This is a single exposure taken with the Sony A7RII and Canon 70-200 lens. Settings for this shot were 2.0 seconds F4 ISO1000. For this photo I did some light color correction, noise reduction and sharpening. I love the way you can see the stars shine over the city as the moon goes into shadow. I was also surprised by the clarity of the stars, given how much light pollution exists in the San Francisco Bay Area. The second image is just a cropped view of the same photograph, so that you can see the detail in totality. To buy a print of this photograph, click here.
This photo is an even closer view of the moon during totality. Taken with my friend Raphy’s 600 millimeter lens. Which he generously allowed me to use for a shot. To buy a print of this photograph, click here.
Overall this was a really wonderful event. I tried not to worry so much about getting a great shot and instead experienced the moment with some good people! Did you get a chance to see the eclipse? Let me know what your experience was like!
