Planning Milky Way Photography
Here's a planning guide I posted to my old blog to accompany the show tonight:

Bodie Photowalk May 3, Night Workshop May 3, Interiors May 4
My May 3 Bodie night workshop is nearly full, and I'll be announcing a photowalk shortly to show photographers around town earlier that afternoon.

I've also added a workshop with special interior access the following morning, May 4.  Given that there are only 2 weeks until that new session, I've priced that at only $220, the difference between the previous night's session ($325) and the price for both ($545).

I've also added a new night session for Milky Way and perhaps Camelopardalid meteor shower photography May 24, and another interior access session the following morning May 25.  Registration links are up along with more details on my blog:

Lunar Eclipse Over Yosemite Valley South Rim
I caught the lunar eclipse behind trees high on the cliffs  of Yosemite Valley Monday night.  There are so many similar pictures of eclipses of the moon alone... I like to add something extra when I can. I chased the edge of the shadow of this ridge line for 15-20 minutes as the moon entered eclipse and turned red, moving, shooting, and moving again to place the moon by or behind the trees on the ridge.

This is a single exposure captured for 0.5 seconds at f/8, ISO 3200, but I also have brighter, bracketed exposures in case I have time to better recover the ridge line detail in +Adobe Photoshop at some future date.
Captured on a Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera, EF70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens +2x Teleconverter II.

Lunar Eclipse Time-lapse, Catch One April 14/15, 2014
Below is an example of a time-lapse video which you can capture during a lunar eclipse, and here are a couple of blog posts introducing time-lapse photography:

Timelapse Video of Lunar Eclipse - Transamerica Building Conjunction
Astronomical predictions for the moon and a few basic geometry calculations predicted that the moon would reach the top of the Transamerica Buidling from this shooting location, which I located on +Google Earth using +The Photographer's Ephemeris

When +Panoramio's +Gerard Sanz and I arrived early to shoot a timelapse sequence, the moon traveled right to the top of the building, as predicted!

Here's a blog post with more examples of moon-object alignments: 

Here's another time-lapse video, showing the moon rising behind Half Dome:

My power and Internet have been down most of the day, but now that both are back up, I'm really looking forward to the show on night photography / astrophotography tonight!  

A huge part of your success with much landscape photography and astrophotography in particular will be how thoroughly you plan ahead to set yourself up for stunning opportunities, so I'm preparing some materials that I think you'll find interesting, educational and useful.

Should Copyright Law be Strengthened, or Abolished?
Should your photographs and art be worthless, available to all for free on the Internet?  Rich executives at powerful corporations who want to profit at your expense think so.  Your input is due TODAY.

Total Lunar Eclipse Tomorrow Night
Depending upon where you live on the planet, a lunar eclipse will occur starting either late April 14 or in the early morning hours of April 15.  NASA provides the times in Universal TIme (UT):

For viewers in North America, here's the approximate timing for viewers on the West Coast (PDT time zone):

10:58pm (Mon) partial lunar eclipse begins
12:07am (Tues) total lunar eclipse begins
12:47am (Tues) maximum lunar eclipse
  1:25am (Tues) total lunar eclipse ends
  2:33am (Tues) partial lunar eclipse ends

The moon will actually start to dim around 9:55 pm as the moon starts to enter the earth's penumbra, the dim edge of the earth's shadow, and it won't fully exit the penumbra until 3:36 am.

The moon will be very high in the sky during this time, and a program such as +PhotoPills can help you plan shots at these times, to line up the moon with natural or man-made objects: Here's an example of a time-lapse video I captured in 2011, where I aligned the moon in eclipse passing right past the tip of the Transamerica Building in San Francisco: 

I'm providing these old photos of mine from 2007 to show you that you can get decent results without needing the latest or most expensive DSLR camera.  I captured these on a 10 megapixel Canon Digital Rebel XTi manufactured in 2006, and here are some notes I took afterwards:
