Hello! In my last entry, I covered the basics of The Photographers Ephemeris. Now, Iâll show you a quick run-down of the next tool in the bundle that I use, The Photographers Transit.Â
So in my last post, we decided that I would be able to see the moon during the eclipse, setting over the Golden gate Bridge. Now, we need to find out just what kind of lens I might need so that I know I have the right equipment with me when I go. The photographers transit out does that in a couple of different ways. The first, is showing you a top down now where are you where youâre going to stand, and you pick your lens. It will let you define the lenses that you have, either prime or zoom, and then you can choose between them to see what your field of view will be with that lens.
Hereâs what it looks like:
You can see from the screenshot that I will have no problem covering the bridge and Marin headlands with my 24â105 kit lens. Donât worry, I will be taking a long zoom lens because I want some close-upsâ¦ but it is nice to know that I donât need anything other than my normal two lenses to get the shot that I really want.
