Steps to great photographs
First things first, you need to protect your eyes and never expose them to risk. As we spoke before about retina damages.
Try to find a good spot for yourself to view the eclipse. Use a resource like NASA eclipse maps to find where you can see the most coverage.
Most popular spots will be taken by other photographers who are enthusiastic to take good shot. Try to be more unique and find a place no-one else took a photograph in
Use a foreground element into your eclipse shot. Because if you didn’t it will look like partial orange discs. Use wide-angle lens will help you fit the elements into the shot and give it scope and context.
Don’t buy or rent expensive gear or filters for a single eclipse. These filters made to do two things; reduce the amount of visible light coming in and filter the out the invisible IR and UV rays.
They are no good unless there is an eclipse good ones are expensive while cheap are bad it will affect your photos. If you are pointing your camera at the sun you will be needing a filter to protect it. But make sure it is worth it.
NASA recommends using welding glass for eye protection and camera too, it needs to be at least 12 shade.
