Lunar Eclipse Photo Walk

December 11, 2011 Lunar Eclipse (also known as a "Blood Moon") Photo by Michael Maloney

We are pleased to announce that Michael from our Camera West Walnut Creek staff will again start up his series of popular monthly photo walks.

Each month, he picks a different theme, subject or location in the bay area. These low key photo walks are your opportunity to learn more about your camera and how to more comfortably shoot various subjects. Photographers of all abilities are welcome.

This month’s photo walk will take us to Marin County where we will photograph an extra special show in the night sky – a rare supermoon lunar eclipse. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly behind the earth into its shadow. This only occurs when the sun, earth, and moon are perfectly aligned. From our location, we will photograph the moon as it rises over the Golden Gate Bridge during the peak of the eclipse.

On Sunday, September 27th, conditions should be perfect as the eclipsing supermoon rises near the same time as the sun sets. This gives us the ability to capture detail in both the full moon and the landscape. Michael will be on hand to help with proper exposure and offer tips to help you get a photo you will be proud of.

Don’t miss this opportunity! The next supermoon lunar eclipse won’t come around until 2033. Sign up early, as participation will be limited to just 12 photographers.

Sunday, September 27th, 2015
Cost : $50.00
Call or email Michael at Camera West Walnut Creek for more info or to sign up.
