How I Shot a Time-Lapse of the Total Solar Eclipse in Argentina

One of the best things time-lapse photography has given me is my interest in astronomy. When I started shooting the night sky, I needed to learn basic astronomy in order to understand what I was photographing. Thanks to that, I was able to capture a time-lapse of the total solar eclipse this past July 2nd in Córdoba, Argentina.

What I Learned from Capturing My First Total Solar Eclipse

Last week I made the long trip from the UK to Chile in the hopes of capturing my first total solar eclipse. I had experienced a cloudy total solar eclipse from the UK in 1999 but back then I was just 9 years old and certainly no photographer. Now that I’m apparently a professional landscape astrophotographer, a total solar eclipse was a gaping hole in my portfolio.

Riveting Time-Lapse of a Total Lunar Eclipse

In June of 2011, astrophotographer Jean-Luc Dauvergne travelled all the way to Tajikistan to capture the total lunar eclipse on June 15th in the best conditions possible. Lasting almost two hours, he captured the eclipse from start to finish in a captivating minute-long time-lapse with one heck of a crescendo.

Photographer Chases the Perfect Eclipse Shot at 44,000ft and 500mph

Forget storm chasing, that's a cinch when you compare it to what former NASA photographer Ben Cooper and some colleagues of his did last weekend: eclipse chasing. Cooper captured the shot above from a chartered jet going 500mph at 44,000ft in the air, but it was a near miss.

You see, they had to try and cross the Moon's shadow as it moved across the Earth... and that puppy was shuffling right along at 8,000mph!
