Photographing the Solar Eclipse Workshop

with Brad Goetsch

 At Homestead National Monument of America

Attention photographers of all skill levels! Learn how to make two and a half minutes in the shadow last forever.  Homestead National Monument of America will be hosting onSunday, August 6th at 2:00 pm a photography workshop by  Brad Goetsch.  This free workshop will focus on photographing the solar eclipse.  The program will be held at the Homestead Education Center.

Brad will share resources he has gathered and how to plan for photographing a total solar eclipse. Learn the “Where” “When” and “How” elements of photographing a solar eclipse as well.  This two hour session will include an indoor information portion and an outdoor hands on practice session at Homestead’s Education Center. Bring your gear to practice if you have it!

Homestead National Monument of America Superintendent Mark Engler shared, “This is a great hands on opportunity for the public to learn how to safely photograph the eclipse.  Photographing eclipses with a camera, or any device like a cell phone or tablet, without a proper filter could permanently damage a person’s eyes and camera.  This workshop will help people prepare ahead of time what they’ll need to safely photograph the eclipse.”

Brad will share information about equipment that he would use on the inexpensive side and also share what is out there for people dedicated to solar observation/photography, too.  To learn more information about Brad, photographing eclipses; gear and more visit this link to Brad’s website: http://www.bunkershotsphotography.com/the-great-american-eclipse

Art – History Museum Celebrates Nebraska’s Sesquicentennial

I have seen this collection and it is a Must See for anyone living in Nebraska for more than 10 years. – keith …..

In celebration of 150 years of Nebraska’s statehood, the Nebraska History Museum will display over 120 paintings in an exhibition titled “The Legacy of Nebraska.” The paintings, done by Nebraskan artist Todd Williams, will represent each of Nebraska’s counties.

The works vary in size and subject; from the state capitol building to portraits of Native American chiefs.

Williams, a native of Central City, used various methods and inspirations to complete the paintings.

“Some of them are plein air, [which means] he painted them out in the outdoors,” said Ann Billesbach, associate director of the Nebraska State Historical Society. “Some of them are painted from historic photographs. There are a few counties where he did more than one but there’s at least one from every Nebraska county.”

“The Legacy of Nebraska” is an official part of Nebraska’s 150 celebration and has been in the making for years.

Billesbach said the planning committee for the sesquicentennial also plans on making a book with all the paintings displayed in the exhibition.

The paintings will be shown at the Lincoln museum from March 1 to June 4, then the exhibit’s entirety will move to Omaha and Grand Island with smaller curated exhibits being shown in smaller Nebraskan towns.
