Beautiful capture and edit \u1F60D

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken on the beach at Jokulsarlon, Iceland.
Time
Sunset
Lighting
I shot into the light to bring the ice alive.
Equipment
Nikon D810 14-24mm lens ..Gitzo tripod.
Inspiration
Iceland is breathtaking.
Editing
I used the NIK collection and darkened the sky quite a bit in Camera RAW filter settings.
In my camera bag
My kit comprises of a Nikon D810, Nikon D800E, Nikon f2.8 14-24mm lens, Nikon f2.8 24-70mm lens, Nikon f4 70-200mm lens and 3 Nikon SB910 flashguns.
Feedback
My advice is to not get too over excited and rush the capture, this s hard the first time you see this amazing event but work out where the main lights are forming and find interesting foreground or other landscape angles to frame the beauty of the display. Start off around 20 secs at f3.5 ISO 1600 do a few test shots and check the LCD for brightness, it is worth also displaying the histogram to check that the exposure sits comfortably between shadows and high lights. Be carefully not to over expose the northern lights as you can easily lose the beautiful detail and shapes. Err on under exposure and try to favour a low ISO where possible to reduce noise and increase quality. But have fun and experiment too if you have time so on your return home you have a rich and in depth supply of RAW data. Always shoot RAW if possible.
