I saw a lot of moon shots posted with a red tint to the eclipse. None of my shots had the slightest hint of red in them. Was the color related to the atmosphere?

Light bending around the earth through the atmosphere?

That's odd. Where on the earth were you shooting?

I saw a completely covered blood red moon directly overhead from my parking lot in Aventura, Florida. Unfortunately, my camera captured the earlier parts of the Eclipse but not the full. There were some beautiful shots posted yesterday. I think your location affects visibility.

At 98% full eclipse it was not a bit red here in SE VA either.

In Colorado front range, our moon was pretty dark, straight up, and tricky to shoot. I abandoned the tripod early on. For a while, I wondered if I was even going to get one I could use. Finally, I went to auto iso and center point autofocus, took a few shots once I found the moon in the viewfinder then went to manual focus and took a few more. In post, I was able to add a little exposure and detail. Definitely not an easy one.

Not totally sure but what I observed, to the naked eye somewhat seeing the red is your location, as for through the camera when viewing from bright moon to dark moon ISO need to change from low to high, that is basically how the process worked for me to capture the red.

What you got was nice, but a longer exposure, faster aperture or higher ISO would show the color.

A typical problem when you expose for the light and did not expose for the darkness.

In 2 or 3 years another chance will be here. For that try experimenting around, starting with this setting on full manual mode. Any auto or semi auto mode will not expose for the darkness!

ISO 800 to 3200.
f:5.6 to f:11.
1 second to half a second.

IN Boca Raton Florida I got a red moon at midnight shooting straight up. Could not use live view shooting hand held at 600mm straight overhead, resulting in blurred images. But they were red during full eclipse.

We had good view here in Cincinnati (West Chester) till around midnight, then the clouds appeared. I shot my images with 5D Mkiv, with Canon 100-400 ll and 1.4 extender.

The closeup images are only about 8% of the image sensor, so some serious cropping was required. The bright moon shot at ISO1250, 1/80th, and f8 (lens wide open less stop for telextender!). The "red/orange" moon was ISO3200 0.5sec, at f8.

The sequence was from multiple shots combined is PS CC.

In western NC the moon was blindingly light early and then full blood red at midnight. I did not take any photos but another friend did and it was amazing to see.
