This August a total solar eclipse will cross the lower 48 United States for the first time since 1979. It’s a rare event and a unique photographic opportunity. I created this quick video to share some safety tips on photographing and viewing this event along with some tips and thoughts on photographing it with you all in the Plus community.

If you want to learn more I have another video on scouting and preparing for the eclipse as well as one on practicing and using your gear to capture it. There are links to the products and filters I discussed at those video links. I hope those of you planning to watch and photograph it have an incredible experience.
