Join Tatra Photography for one of the most unique Aurora photography tours you will ever experience, with our new travelling hotel we can track down the clear skies for Aurora photography and move around without having to check in and out of hotels or drive long distances back to base, our travelling hotel will follow our path every step which guarantees more opportunity to photograph the Aurora.
The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis are discharged particles from the sun that pass through the magnetic shield of earth and create light when they mix with atoms and molecules such as nitrogen and oxygen gases on entering into the earth’s atmosphere.
These particles travel through space towards planet earth being drawn towards the earth’s magnetic north and south polar regions. During periods of strong solar flares the light becomes extremely dynamic producing swirls and flash patterns throughout the sky. The colours merge and flash from greens, reds, yellows and violets.
The sight is awe inspiring. The Aurora Borealis is one of the most incredible natural phenomenon’s you will ever witness and we will be with you every step of the way to capture it all.
On this Northern Lights Iceland special you will receive a masterclass in Aurora photography and all the techniques required from our professional photographer. Each photographer will receive dedicated tuition to capture the Northern Lights and the Icelandic landscape.
We also encourage participants to bring a selection of their work for a review and critique, where our professional tutor will discuss the art of landscape photography composition, how to use the camera to create wow-factor images and how to approach landscape photography with the eye of a pro.
