Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in The Pas, Manitoba. Northern Canada offers some stunning scenes with vibrant Aurora Borealis which is why I made the trip.
Time
This was taken shortly after complete darkness to ensure the Aurora Borealis was as visible as possible.
Lighting
When photographing the Aurora Borealis, I generally try to avoid moonlight as it tends to wash out the vibrant colors. But since the Aurora Borealis were exceptionally bright this night, I used the moonlight to my advantage to help light the foreground.
Equipment
This was shot on my Canon 5D Mark II, 24-70mm f2.8, stabilized on a Manfrotto tripod.
Inspiration
I always loved seeing photos of the Aurora Borealis reflecting on water, so I made it my mission to find something suitable. Coincidentally, it was the perfect spot as the curvature of the Aurora Borealis matches the curvature of the stream.
Editing
I process all my RAW files in Capture One Pro as it respects color than any other processor on the market. I did a bit of white balance correction and added a bit of saturation and contrast.
In my camera bag
When traveling, I normally pack my Canon 5d Mark II, 24-70 f2.8, 70-200 f2.8, medium sized Manfrotto tripod, lens & sensor cleaning kit, remote trigger, extra batteries & memory cards, plastic bags to help eliminate condensation in colder climates, flashlight, etc.
Feedback
When attempting to capture the Aurora Borealis, it’s not always easy to plan ahead of time when they will be ideal. But I use several phone apps that can predict them within a few hours and keep my camera bag packed and ready to go in a moment’s notice. You’ll want a fast lens with a minimum of f2.8 to let in as much light as possible. A tripod is also a must since you’ll be shooting longer exposures around 20 seconds. Using a DSLR that shoots RAW will help with any noise reduction and corrections in post production. But the most important thing is to just go out and have fun!
