Over the past few years, I’ve become overly obsessed with photographing the night sky, so when I saw that we were going to be able to see the lunar eclipse on April 15, I knew I had to shoot it. I had been planning this shot for about two weeks before Tuesday morning.
With every lunar eclipse that occurs, my social media feeds blow up with shots of the moon, but they all seem to be extremely tight compositions. Don’t get me wrong, they are great shots for detail, but I’ve always felt they lacked a bit of… “life.”
With that said, I knew that I wanted to create a composition that not only showed the amazing eclipse, but tied in an incredible foreground as well. I mean, why not include the Earth? We are kind of the reason for the lunar eclipse, right?
