p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Northern Lights - The Sky Exploded !!!


Last October, I took a client up to Wiseman Alaska (280 miles North of Fairbanks) to photograph the Northern Lights. We were so fortunate to have 7 clear nights, with activity each night. Some of the nights, you could help but just stare mesmerized at the show. By the end of the trip, we couldn’t wait for a cloudy evening to catch up on some sleep, but we had to wait to get home to see clouds and sleep.

My full Northern Lights gallery can be viewed at: https://www.shetzers.com/pictures/northern-lights/

CC Always welcome !!!!
Happy Shooting!

Thank you. It does look like I've got something out of focus going on in #3. I'll have to go back and look at the RAW.

These are all mice, but too many to take in seriously.

Matt -
Are these single images? You have the foreground and sky perfectly exposed. Incredible!

Thank you !

Most are single images. There is certainly some post processing to balance the Northern Lights and the foregrounds. Normally the Northern Lights are the brightest thing in the scene so I need to lighten up the foreground. I normally shoot a second exposure for the foreground just to make sure I have all the detail and I can decide when I get home, but rarely use it.
