Photographing the Solar Eclipse Workshop with Brad Goetsch
 At Homestead National Monument of America
 

Attention photographers of all skill levels! Learn how to make two and a half minutes in the shadow last forever. Homestead National Monument of America will be hosting on Sunday, August 6th at 2:00 PM a photography workshop by  Brad Goetsch. This free workshop will focus on photographing the solar eclipse. The program will be held at the Homestead Education Center. 

 
Brad will share resources he has gathered and how to plan for photographing a total solar eclipse. Learn the “Where” “When” and “How” elements of photographing a solar eclipse as well. This two hour session will include an indoor information portion and an outdoor hands on practice session at Homestead's Education Center. Bring your gear to practice if you have it! 
 
Homestead National Monument of America Superintendent Mark Engler shared, "This is a great hands on opportunity for the public to learn how to safely photograph the eclipse. Photographing eclipses with a camera, or any device like a cell phone or tablet, without a proper filter could permanently damage a person’s eyes and camera. This workshop will help people prepare ahead of time what they’ll need to safely photograph the eclipse.”
 
Brad will share information about equipment that he would use on the inexpensive side and also share what is out there for people dedicated to solar observation/photography, too.
