May 23rd, 2012
Incredibly, my travel schedule had me driving through Redding on Sunday, May 20th, just about the time of the annular solar eclipse. Redding was directly in the path of maximum sun shadow as well.
I was not equipped to photograph the sun directly, so instead took photos of the crowd and the “scene”, and primarily shot 3D video of this beautiful location. I suspect that once I edit the 3D video it will be the world’s first 3D video of a solar eclipse event (the event, not the sun, though).
I have a LOT of 3D video to edit as I was at Maker Faire the day before, also shooting 3D video. And this coming weekend is another event at which I will be shooting 3D video. The raw video is piling up faster than I can get to the editing!
