A Northern Lights Photography Experience
The Northern Lights are mesmerizing and I have made numerous trips to Alaska and Norway to photograph them. If you haven’t witnessed them in person, it is impossible to describe the feeling of standing under them.
It may be brutally cold outside. It may require waiting in the dark for hours. I just make the decision to come prepared and be there when it happens. There are times I would like to forget the camera and tripod and just lie on the ground and watch, but the photographer in me winds up winning out.
Photographing the Northern Lights Landscape – Facts and Reflections
Capturing the beauty of the aurora borealis as it lights up the landscape is a magical experience. The aurora borealis – otherwise known as the northern lights – is a vivid demonstration of the Earth's magnetic field interacting with charged particles from the sun.
The best time to see the northern lights is between 9 p.m. - 1 a.m. local time. In the high arctic, you may be able to experience the Aurora 50 nights per year. Bring a tripod and set your shutter to capture light for 5 seconds. 1600 is a good beginning ISO setting on your camera. The photos in this gallery showcase the vivid color and designs that the warped auroras provide the photographer.
