In photography, I've loved to explore natural elements. Visualizing the feeling of the sun, the wind or the rain, but I quickly found that astrophotography is my favorite. In the moments of this lunar eclipse I learn't a lot about the camera, but also got to experience the lunar eclipse in a practical manner. To take this photo, I had to think a lot about the levels of light the different phases let out, as I had to adjust the aperture, ISO and shutter speed to get the best quality image. Thinking about these technicalities while it happened, made the experience much more interesting and special. This photograph is my favorite astrophotograph I've taken so far, not just because I am really happy with how it turned out, but how I learn't so much about the camera and the lunar eclipse in a matter of minutes.
