PODCAST 118: Macro Photography & the 2019 Total Lunar Eclipse

Kirk Keyes Podcast Leave a Comment

Today we talk about Macro Photography! Last week we recorded an episode about Macro Photography for Gear Time Live using what macro gear Brendon and Drew had on them! We experienced a lot of what went wells and what could have gone betters. Then it’s on to the awesome Total Lunar Eclipse.

Macro Photography

We discuss the pros and cons of certain macro lenses, get giddy about Carnivorous Plants, and share some beginner tips. Then we talk about the necessary gear to get into the fun and the patience required for the art of Macro Photography.

2019 Total Lunar Eclipse

In the last half of the podcast, we talk about the fun experience we had capturing the Total Lunar Eclipse on Sunday evening. We look at the challenges and benefits of shooting with a 70-200mm lens versus using a Celestron Nexstar 6SE telescope connected to a Canon 6D.
