I have written a thorough guide to shooting the eclipse with the help of Hudson Henry (he did all the heavy lifting). I had his video captioned so that you can watch in a quiet environment if needed.
The eclipse is impacting my hometown of Brownsville, Oregon, which is also having their Country Music Festival the same weekend. Please be kind and patient with the locals.
