Important note about photography

Photography

Taking the camera or smartphone on your trip sounds quite obvious, but we want to give you some tips to all of you who are coming especially chasing for the northern lights/aurora borealis. First of all, we want to mention that all year round there is at list one professional photographer in our team; you can always consult your doubts and get some tips. But an important thing is you need to bring your own gear, or always you can join our photo tours where we provide all the gear you might need (check it out! Aurora Photo Tour, Fjord Photo Tour, Hiking Photo Tour)

We’ve made a list of what you need to take perfect pictures of the northern lights:
  •  Tripod; any kind of stabilization to keep your camera/phone still while taking the picture.
  • Camera; any kind of camera will do the job, but if you want to take perfect and sharp pictures of the night sky and the aurora, then you need a reflex camera, a mirrorless camera or a compact digital camera (last generation)
  • Extra; in case you have no other camera than the one on your phone, you still can photograph aurora with the phone, but keep in mind the first point, is very important to have any kind of stabilization, small tripod for phones, a selfie stick that you can stick in the snow or just one part of your garments, like gloves where you can rest your phone while is taking the picture. And also you are going to need to download an App that allows you to change the settings of your phone camera, the features that the App must include is the possibility to change exposure, ISO, and shutter speed.

All of this is because you are going to shoot on manual mode and adjust the settings accordingly to the conditions. One of the settings you’re are going to adjust is the exposure time also called shutter speed, which will make the camera taking the picture for a long period of time (from 1 or 2 seconds up to 30+ seconds), time that the camera/ phone must remain still.
