Partial solar eclipse of June 1, 2011, from Fairbanks, Alaska

By Troutnut on June 1st, 2011

Photos by Troutnut from the Tanana River in Alaska

This partial solar eclipse today was most prominent across parts of Siberia, the Arctic Ocean, and Scandanavia, but I caught the outer edge of it here in Fairbanks, Alaska.  I went out to a quiet spot next to the Tanana River behind the airport, and shot this composite photo of several short exposures of the sun during the eclipse, and one longer exposure at the end, capturing the thin clouds that crept into the frame.

Jason,
Cool picture. Really neat and sort of abstract effect.


What program are you using to do you r compositing? Is it an automated process or are you doing it manually?

I'm using Lightroom and Photoshop. For this image the compositing was really simple to do manually, because the small sun images were all solid black except for the sun itself. I put the bright sun / cloud image as the bottom layer, and all the others above it with the "lighten" blend mode.

I've been doing a lot of other composite images lately (both HDR and panoramas) using Lightroom & Photoshop CS3 for the panoramas and the LR/Enfuse plugin for HDRs.
