Solar Eclipse

Today for the first time in 38 years the United States got to view an amazing event, “A Solar Eclipse.” Now to most people, they might just ignore the event because no one really cares about staring at the Sun. But this is a must view and it only comes by every so often.

Meaning the next Solar Eclipse will be April 8, 2024 8 years away


Info: To start taking photos or even video of the sun is tricky and very important. Starting with knowing what types of filters to use plus getting the focal length correct so that your image will be viewable. The photo taken above was shot with a none expensive camera so don’t get discouraged by outrages prices of equipment. 

Filters used above:

  • B+W IR Filter 830
  • B+W IR Filter 695 20x-40x
  • B+W 040 4x E (orange tint filter)
  • Vivitar UV Filter

Now this is a simple set up. Most rigs for this type of photography requires 400mm-1200mm+ focal length scopes/lens and special H-alpha, Mylar, or ND filter to block out the harsh rays of the sun. Find what works for you but be sure you know what you’re doing when it comes to the setup. 

Note: Some filters block out visible light but not harmful Ultra violet light, which can burn an image on your cornea with no pain or feeling at all. Please be careful and enjoy the science of space.

Work In Progress


In it’s early stages there is a project starting to form…

Animals | Nature | Different angles | Point of View

Its about that time of year where teachers start giving out final projects to sum up the end of the semester. So this year looks like its going to be a gallery for photography. The idea is to come up with a theme that you can bring together with 10 different photos.

So what’s the idea?

My idea is to take in an angle in which people don’t really view often. Like an animals point of view for instance, take your average spider crawling along the web. To the viewer when we look at the spider we see a solid figure outlining a spider shape and a faint gleam of the web in front of you. Yet what does a faint gleam of web really look like from the spiders point of view? Can a humans eyes really see that?

For this project, I want to capture that  point of view. I want to grab that moment in time where we as the viewer can see what it means to be an animal in that moment.
