4484 TaragonRain lens may have been destroyed but history was made with this dope ass picture
1215 Pro_Racing Holy shit, that's amazing. How do you take photos that close to rocket, what goes into setting it up?
290 bustervich What did the lens look like afterwords? I’ve always been curious about what it would be like to be that close to the business end of a rocket.
211 johnkphotos Hey all -- thanks for the interest in this shot! I've written a rather detailed post over in /r/photography that goes into how the lens was damaged. [I ask that you read that if you'd like to know more.](https://www.reddit.com/r/photography/comments/81fu6u/the_results_of_placing_a_fisheye_lens_just_over/) TLDR: Some mixture of solid rocket booster exhaust, water from the launchpad's water suppression system, and sand/dirt pelted the front element of the lens I had on my camera body. The body itself was fine and only the front element of the lens was damaged (yes, beyond reasonable repair). I bought the lens from a buddy for $100 the night before remote camera setup, so I am not at all worried about the cost; I quickly made up for it with print sales. I work as a credentialed photojournalist under [AmericaSpace](http://www.americaspace.com); along with other members of the media, I set up sound-activated still cameras at the Cape launchpads prior to most launches. This specific image was shot with a Nikon D7000 and Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens. 1/1250, f/8, ISO 200. I invite you to check out my [website](http://www.johnkrausphotos.com) if you'd like to see more of my rocket launch photography. You can follow along on [Instagram, @johnkrausphotos](http://www.instagram.com/johnkrausphotos), as well!
294 Spooooooooky The picture is amazing, but I'm more amazed knowing it broke the camera. Looking at this and imagining the destructive forces necessary for the launch is what really blows my mind. That context is everything. Great work, OP.
21 Pyehole I love the photo but the photographer in me cries for the poor lens.
10 Flight714 It's a shame about your lens getting ruined. But it can't be helped, I guess. You've gotta get the shot. Just an idea for next time: You could ask NASA if they'd consider relocating their launch platform a few hundred feet further away from your camera setup.
