I get this question very frequently, whenever I post a photo depicting the Aurora Borealis.
The answer is simple, but complicated: It depends. :) There is no universal recipe for photographing the Northern Lights, but there are some general aspects that have to be taken care of.
In April 2015, Olympus came with an update to it’s Tough line - the Stylus TG-4. I was really interested in buying the TG-3, so when a follow up was announced I got really excited. Three weeks ago, the guys at Olympus Norge sent me a TG-4 to test for a while around Lofoten.
A bit of location scouting and some help from Lady Aurora made this photo a lot more interesting than my other try. But, all in all, the experience is fantastic. Battling the cold is a lot more enjoyable under the undulating curtains of the Aurora Borealis.
