The main purpose of this blog is to share photographs taken during the Soulclipse festival in Antalya (Turkey) at the end March 2006, which coincided with a fabulous total solar eclipse. Please add comments - I'd love to hear from you!

Professional cameras

There were quite a few people with professional looking cameras around the time of the eclipse, some with massive lenses, many with tripods, and most of them equipped with various filters enabling them to photograph the sun. I liked the fact that serious photographers were into psytrance - or was it serious psytrancers were into photography? After all, if they were really into photographing the eclipse, the Liquid dancefloor was probably not the best place for it... so many people, potential light pollution from people trying to photograph the eclipse with their flash, etc. This particular photographer, who may or may not be Italian (I think his name may be Gian, but that could be another photographer I chatted to) got into the mood and covered his face with glitter.
