Total Solar Eclipse 2017 — photo 4 of 17: In this photo I am taking a picture of the LCD screen of my Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera. Not only do you see the contents of the screen, but you also see a reflection of my hands, face, and the camera I am taking the picture with. In the center of the screen is the sun, shortly before the total solar eclipse began. The sun is tinted pink because I was using a Hoya infrared filter to reduce the sunlight hitting the camera sensor. The blue color filling most of the LCD screen is the shadow clipping indicator, which gives visual feedback to help set the correct exposure. August 21, 2017, Albany, Oregon. Camera used: Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS50.
