Our Iceland Winter workshops are based near the glacier lagoon at Jökulsarlon. We stay in a hotel close to the lagoon to give us a fair chance of getting photographs like these. We have a 98% success rate for Northern Light photography on these 5 day Winter workshops.
The Northern lights reflected in Jökulsarlon is a dream come true for many photographers. Although composition is an important part of aurora photography, sometimes you just have to shoot them where you stand.
Photographing the Northern lights usually presents under-exposure challenges for the night photographer. Sometimes the Aurora flashes so brightly that it lights up the landscape. In these situations, it is a challenge not to over-expose the photograph.
A high energy light show is great! To see layers of streaks is amazing. It looks like a celestial rainbow in the sky over the Glacier lagoon at Jökulsarlon.
A weak, distant Aurora can be disappointing, but gives a unique opportunity for longer exposures. Using the Magic Cloth Technique, it was possible to produce a brilliant exposure of the foreground ice with the colours refracting through.
Andrew McKelvie joined us for a 5 day tour of South Iceland in January 2020. Andrew explores the planet with his camera, both above and below the water surface.
