LIFE, Henry Groskinsky–Full Eclipse

Someone looks at the eclipse picture, and they think, “All he did was just go click, click, click, click.” But what happened in 1979 was first that I had to find a place to shoot the eclipse over the city of Winnipeg in Canada. I wanted to show the sun’s progress across the sky in a multiple exposure, so I had to compute the exact time of totality over the city. I started my exposures more than an hour before the eclipse. I exposed the sun every nine minutes to allow equal space between each image. I needed heavy neutral density filters because the sun remains bright even in partial eclipse. It’s only when it goes into full eclipse that I could take off the filters. I made this series through the totality.
