For Canon Cameras, there is a FREE firmware called Magic Lantern. Magic Lantern is an enhanced upgrade to the Canon DSLR firmware. If you have a Canon DSLR and like experimenting with digital technology, then Magic Lantern could be for you.
I love visiting Goðafoss Waterfall in the late Summer. The sunset colours work so well with this dynamic, North Iceland waterfall. I was facing West around 20.30 on this September evening on a tour around Iceland.
This night photograph, from Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon in Iceland, captured Northern Lights and a comet disappearing into the North sky over Iceland.
This was an incredible Valentine’s morning on the ice beach. We were in the middle of a photo tour and the light was exactly like this as we arrived on the beach because this was the very first image I took that morning.
Northern lights are a real treat for the travel photographer, but what’s the point if you can’t see the landscape your are visiting? This post looks at the HDR technique and how it can be used at night for Northern lights.

Northern lights can add an extra dimension to night photography because they add strong colours and depth to the sky. This post looks at processing an Aurora panorama.
One of the things I love to do with recent Lightroom versions is to play with low contrast adjustments and introducing de-haze.
Coastal landscapes are very effective long exposures because they often give the photograph a strong contrast between the temporary and the permanent.
From silky waterfalls to star trails, long exposure photography captures the world in a way we don’t normally see. These long exposure photographs are popular and capture the viewer’s imagination, so it is worth studying long exposure photography to add some unique perspectives to your portfolio.
This photo was taken early November on a Jökulsarlon tour. I was taking some shots without an ND filter and some shots with. This is one of the shots with the Neutral Density filter – which creates a slight rose tint. This was one of the last photos of the session and everything fells into place when the sky reached it’s best.
We found ourselves in East Iceland looking at a northern Lights forecast. Not to be defeated, we decided to head back to Vestrahorn mountain with a view to doing star trails or some form of night photography.
I’ve been reading about how ISO doesn’t actually increase noise in the camera? Is there any truth to this?
I would like to go beyond the automatic mode. Should I shoot only in manual mode though? When should I use the “Semi-automatic (priority)” modes?
The Diamond Ice beach is the final land based resting place for ice chunks that calve from the retreating Vatnjökull ice cap.
