Field Trips


CCCC hosts Field Trips to photograph interesting items in the coastal region of the Carolinas. We meet as a group at a point of interest and help each other as we capture images. A video slide show, complete with transitions and music is assembled using members images and shown at the next meeting. The entire field trip experience is fun and helps us improve our photography.

Total Eclipse of the Sun - Georgetown, SC - August 21 at 1:00PM









On August 21, 2017 an event will happen in the United States that is very rare and exciting. For the first time since 1979, a Total Solar Eclipse will be visible in all of the contiguous 48 states! (except Alaska & Hawaii). A slim path from Oregon to South Carolina will see the eclipse in totality and a little wider path will see more than 90% of the sun covered by the moon. The entire country will see up to 90% of the sun covered.

We will join up in Georgetown, SC at 1:00PM. This will leave us time to discuss exposure settings. The partial phase of the eclipse starts at 1:17PM. The total eclipse starts at 2:46PM and lasts for an amazing 1 min 46 sec. I will have the address of the meet up location some time before the event.

To photograph the partial phase of the eclipse you will need a filter for your camera and dark eclipse glasses to protect your eyes. you can get this equipment from hunts photo (it is not expensive). I purchased the EclipSmart Delux Solar Observing and Imaging kit. The web site page describing the equipment is at Total Eclipse Products

Once you are in the totality phase you must remove the filter and the dark glasses. You will also need a telephoto lens to get an image large enough to be worth while. You will also need a tripod.

Additional information about photographing the eclipse can be found at Eclipse info.
