how to capture the eclipse - a brief infographic that covers the basics of planning your location, protecting your eyes and your equipment with glasses and filters, learning to bracket your exposure for drastic light changes, and most importantly staying present to the experience.

Are you seeing this?

The simple answer is “No.”

I am not seeing the same thing you are.

On Monday morning, everyone in Oregon will experience a solar eclipse. For about a third of the state, for varying amounts of time, it will reach totality. Understandably, the focus for many of us is on the sun and the moon. After all, the moon crossing between the Earth and the sun is what creates our experience of an eclipse!

But even though we will all watch the same cosmic event, we will all watch it from our own unique perspective. And that is what’s really interesting about this event.

Learn how to safely document this experience and capture truly meaningful images – even using only your smartphone – today in Serravision Photography‘s article: Am I the only one seeing this? – How to photograph the eclipse.

We hope you’ll share your story in pictures!

Black and white photo of a newborn sleeping on his tummy with a blanket and mom

This image of mom’s hand on her baby’s back has a calm feeling of connection. Because of the non-traditional angle, the focus of the image is really on their relationship more than it is on either mom or baby.

So you have a baby at home…awesome!

You may have just realized that you desperately want to share this new baby with the world but you can’t seem to get a good picture of them. What gives? You obviously SEE how beautiful your baby is. In fact, it’s almost impossible to get over the feeling of awe you feel. So why don’t any of your pictures seem to come close?

Don’t worry, it isn’t just you! Most people are no good at taking pictures of babies. And it isn’t necessarily because it’s super hard to do it – it’s that we are not used to doing it. With a few simple things in mind, you can dramatically improve the photos you take of your baby.

  1. Find good light
  2. Get the angle right
  3. Think about the story you’re telling
  4. Make sure there’s nothing crazy in the background

Sound too good to be true?
