This was my first time ever photographing an aurora, so I did some research as to the best way to go about it. Here’s what I learnt in a step by step guide on how to take photos of the night sky.
You could splash out thousands of dollars on a state-of-the-art camera that can operate in outer space and tie your shoes for you, but your photos will still come out looking mediocre if you have a cheap shitty lens. A good lens will turn your photos into something you’ve drooled over in National Geographic.
Sick of your photos looking as though they might have been taken by a 5 year old? You can make overexposed, washed out, and blurry photos a thing of the past by upgrading to a DSLR!
A good photo isn’t just the result of a good camera and a professional photographer. You might be interested to know that the post-processing stage is a huge part of transforming your photos from something good into something amazing!
