Tips For Getting The Best Eclipse Selfie

  • Lower your expectations - The eclipse will look tiny in your photos, so focus on getting wide views with the sky and atmosphere included.
  • Keep your solar eclipse glasses on - Safety is crucial! Don’t look directly at the sun and don’t take off your safety glasses.
  • Be quick - The totality period is only about two minutes and 30 seconds or less, so snap your selfie fast so you still have time to take it all in.
  • Practice adjusting your camera’s control exposure settings - Get to know your phone camera’s settings and practice before the eclipse.
  • Consider downloading an advanced phone app, such as ProCamera - It’ll give you more exposure settings and features.

And when it’s time to actually take the eclipse selfie, here’s what to do:

  • Switch your flash from “Auto” to “On.”
  • Turn on your front-facing camera, so you see yourself on the screen.
  • Move around so that you see the moon over your shoulder.
  • Use your right hand to adjust the exposure to the moon and hold.
  • Use your left hand to take the photo.
  • Then put your phone away and enjoy the moment, even if you didn’t get the photo you wanted.
