In July 2019, Photographer Dan Marker-Moore set up his gear on a remote mountaintop in Chile to capture a total solar eclipse. Using his recognizable time-slice style, he created a very unique collection of images. Combining hundreds of photos, he created several captivating, chart-like composites that show various stages of the eclipse.
Dan used a Sony a7R III paired with a 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM and a 70-200mm f/2.8 GM to shoot photos for his time slice collection. Each of the photos is a composite combining hundreds of images together. Dan shot the eclipse across a wide span of time, and he had to choose from 507 of images to create the final work. “Obviously it took some time and several iterations to arrive at the compositions I liked the most,” he explains in a post at Alpha Universe. He meticulously aligned multiple photos in his composites, creating a totally unique vision of the solar eclipse.
Other than the amazing composite images that initially grabbed my attention, Dan has also shot a timelapse of the 2019 eclipse. You can see it below, along with a BTS video.
