I couldn’t think of anything to photograph so I took some macro shots of one of Eva’s toys. Then I remembered that there was a lunar eclipse and it looked fantastic. Allison and I went outside around 9:50 and there was still a sliver of white moon. The rest had turned to orange. I grabbed my camera and put on the telephoto lens.
I had read a post from Thomas Hawk pointing to tips on shooting the lunar eclipse. I tried quite a few things to get a good shot of the moon. I used a tripod. I have a really cheap sucky one that won’t stay where I tell it to stay. Great. I also used manual mode and I hit the release button and stepped away. Later I used the timer so that there would be no movement from me. I also used the autofocus. I’m reviewing them now to choose today’s best.
I picked one out of a bunch. I think it was the best. I played with all sorts of settings but it was very cold and my hands were starting to freeze up. Here are the ones that didn’t make the cut for PAD.
You might be aware of my favorite smack-happy folks. That woudl be the online Big G. Well it is time to fight back. And if you have been a victim of RankSpank you should see this video.
That is Ashley, Veronique and Ted from IZEA in the video. How fun does that look? I love it. Great job guys! Now everyone go and get your IZEARanks.
Allison is rocking the Guitar hero thing right now. She is slamming through a ton of songs and will soon fly past me in her Guitar Hero 3 career.
