Jamie asks: on August 21, 2017, the Earth will cross the shadow of the moon, creating a total solar eclipse. For the first time in almost 99 years, the path of the moon’s shadow passes through the continental United States and I’m one of the 609,000 people lucky enough to live in Nashville who will experience 2+ minutes of totality… and I’m not ready! Can you give me some tips to capture this once in a lifetime event using my video camera? Thanks.
In this tutorial, photographer Destin Sandlin interviews astronomer Dr. Gordon Telepun who describes his “drift method” for shooting the eclipse. Regardless of what camera you use, you will have everything you need to make videos of the upcoming eclipse.
