So I tried my hand at photographing northern lights for the first time in March. We had a couple of days when they were quite bright. Of course, I missed the first night when they were the brightest so my pictures were taken on the second night when they weren’t quite as vibrant. I think my technique needs some work but for my first time they turned out not bad!
At the end of my last post about my trip to Mexico I promised to post some of my photography from the trip. Well I finally finished sorting through the hundreds of pictures I took and am ready to post some!
I learned a couple of neat techniques from Greg Johnson, the Tornado Hunter, who taught the photography workshops during the trip. During the sunset shoots I learned how to give the waves and water a soft, fuzzy effect which looks super pretty. I also learned how to shoot pictures of the stars which I absolutely loved!
All my photos were shot on my Nikon D5300 with the standard 16-35mm lens that came with it.
This was the first time that I played with these techniques and settings on my camera so I obviously have room for improvement but I’m so glad that I got to try these out for the first time by the ocean in Mexico!
