Every so often the Moon falls into the shadows of the Earth, resulting in a lunar eclipse. Although lunar eclipses take place more often than solar eclipses, you’ll still want to experience watching and potentially photographing this somewhat rare and stunningly beautiful phenomenon. I have been taking pictures of both partial and total lunar eclipses for a number of years now, and I decided to document my experiences and the challenges I encountered for the benefit of our readers. In this article, I will do my best to explain how to photograph a lunar eclipse in detail.
What Time And Place Is the Lunar Eclipse?
Unfortunately, the upcoming lunar eclipse isn’t visible everywhere in the world. We recommend visiting this webpage and typing in your city name to see if the upcoming eclipse is visible where you live, as well as the time and duration when you can see it.
