Aurora Prints from Iceland
This was my one and only level 10 Aurora experience. You can tell a level 10 display because the Northern Lights cast a shadow. I was a little disappointed with the amount of cloud cover. I would have loved to have seen more of this giant streak of Aurora as it passed over our heads. The Northern lights on this night turned the glacier lagoon green.

This was taken on a workshop with the legendary Oliver Klink… legendary because he brought a group of Hasselblad photographers to shoot aurora. In case you’re wondering, this didn’t work. This shot was captured with my mighty Canon. Don’t shoot auroras with Hasselblad! although I think Oliver is still trying.

Hints for Magic Cloth photography
The Magic Cloth Photography Trick is a a clever method to capture a scene with high dynamic range.
The Magic Cloth Approach functions superbly for shooting the foreground or reflections in a Northern Lights scene. For utilizing the Magic Cloth Method the #1 prerequisite is having a long-exposure. So you could control the coverage to various parts of the scene without having to add filters. If you are in the amazing situation of photographing northern lights, which commonly include exposures between 5 and 30 seconds, the #1 requirement has already been met. Even though I’ve discovered that a large mitten functions just fine the only real extra equipment you may need is card or a straight edge material.
Aurora photos should be taken without filters. Circular filters will cause circles to appear in your aurora image. Shadowy filters do not make sense because you have invested lots of cash in quick camera and a quick lens, so do not slow down it. Shooting at night can call for very long shutter speeds, so you can get imaginative without dark filters.
