How to photograph Northern Lights

Postby chicagotech » Thu Nov 09, 2017 10:56 am

1. Find Dark Skies。
2. Northern Lights Photography Equipment: Tripod, A Wide Angle Lens with F2.8.
3. Focus Your Lens for Northern Lights Photography: Since the stars & Northern Lights are very far away in respect to where we stand on Earth, we can focus at infinity or very close to it, and capture perfectly sharp photos of the night sky.
4. Image Format: RAW.
5. Metering Mode: Matrix Metering for Nikon and Evaluative Metering for Canon.
6. Aperture Settings: f/2.8 is the best aperture setting for northern lights photography. F-stops values of f/3.5 or f/4 also work well for photographing the aurora.
7. Shutter Speed: Keeping your shutter speed / exposure time between 5-25 seconds will work very well for shooting the northern lights. When the aurora is moving quickly, try 5-7 second exposures, when it’s not moving as quickly try 10-25 second exposures.
8. ISO value: 100 to 3200.

极光摄影

拍摄极光需要可以长时间曝光的相机,手机是肯定不行的。一些基本注意事项:
•ISO调高至800左右
•长时间曝光:根据环境和极光亮度,曝光15秒至30秒左右
•三脚架:长时间曝光需要相机稳定,所以一定需要三角架。冰岛风大,三脚架最好是有一定重量、不会轻易被风吹的摇晃的
•备用电池:电池在冷的环境小消耗更快,多带一块备用电池最保险
•构图:拍摄极光最好有前景,有环境衬托出极光的比例。如果有水能反射极光也会有很梦幻的效果。
