2013 is declared to be the year to photograph the northern lights. This is due to the 11 year solar cycle reaching its maximum, making the release timing perfect. I’ve been working on the this eBook for a long time, and many people have been anxiously awaiting its release. I’m happy to say that it is now available on Itunes for viewing on the Ipad. I realize that not everyone has an Ipad, so I’m working on getting it available in other platforms. In the interim, you can purchase a .PDF.
IS THIS EBOOK FOR ME?
This book is written for any photographer who plans on making an excursion to photograph the northern lights. It is extremely detailed and comprehensive, yet accessible to the beginner and the professional. Whether you take a guided photo tour or go on your own, the investment is huge. And this investment is too great for simply experimenting. You can’t afford to make mistakes—and there are many that can easily happen—trust me. I targeted this book to mitigate those potential mistakes. If you follow my advice—and the aurora shows up—you will have success.
WHY DID I WRITE THIS EBOOK?
I wrote this book because of the growing number of questions I received through my website and blog about photographing the aurora. Often those questions required a few questions from me, which required some degree of dialogue. The volume of inquiries became more than I could address to any degree of depth.
WHAT IS IN THE EBOOK?
The insider information, or trade secrets on how to photograph the aurora used to be held very tightly by many professionals. The digital revolution has changed that to some degree. I’ve offered a small aurora photography tutorial on my blog for many years, but that is just a snippet compared to this eBook. As for the information in the eBook, as one colleague said, “you sold the farm”. I’ve tapped my two decade career of aurora photography and presented it so you can successfully capture your own photos of the aurora
