Night photography Prints in Iceland

Þingvellir Night - natural

What I love about night photography is that it reveals colours that you just can’t see with your eyes.
This is the tectonic riff at Thingvellir National park. Te waterfall is called Öxararfoss.

This has adjusted curves and a little enhancement on the colours, but with the help of half moon and magic cloth, this is pretty much in camera.

The Magic Cloth Technique

The Magic Cloth Technique is a an exciting way to capture a high dynamic range scene.


Dark Filter: (but not if you are shooting at night!)

I use screw-on filters for convenience.

Heavy Tripod:

Set up your tripod to make it heavy. This is good practice for high end long exposure photography. Avoid extending the center column unless you really need to. The center column is the least stable part of the tripod.

Long Exposure Photography Tips

What to do:


Use a dark filter or low light for a longer exposure time, then over expose the picture by 2 – 3 stops.

Exposure time

There are benefits to using a long Exposure time. 2-5 sec requires a fast, but smooth movement to cover the sky within a reflex time. 5-10 sec allows for a extra exposure of the middle-ground.

Magic Cloth Movement

Once the sky has been exposed, I usually lower the cloth very quickly and bring it up carefully.
