Seeing Aurora Borealis is amazing. Learning how to capture them with a camera is even more rewarding!
Join our photo workshop to learn how to capture the Aurora Borealis and beyond! All you need is a camera with basic manual settings.
About the activity
Joining our Capturing Auroras Photography Workshop in Pyhä, Lapland, way above the Arctic Circle, will give you a lot: first of all, you can boost your practical skills levels. You will learn how to use your own camera with some manual settings so, that you can capture the best of the Auroras and share the amazing moments with your friends and followers. But there’s more. You will also gain a lot of knowledge regarding the ever-captivating phenomenon: how they appear in the local Lappish folklore (including why you should never, ever, whistle under the Auroras…), and what the latest scientific research has to say about them.
Capturing Auroras Photography Workshop does not take place in a classroom – or, let the snow-blanketed Taiga forest be the classroom! The Bliss Adventure photography guide will walk you in nature, prepare you a ringside seat by the bonfire and then start sharing her or his experience and knowledge about the Auroras, and about the northern lifestyle in general, should you have some questions on your mind.
Once the theory and story-telling part is over, it is the time to get busy practicing the night time photography, hands on! Your guide will introduce you how to use a tripod camera stand and will go through the setting menus with you to get everything right. A short walk away from the bonfire will put you in a perfect photography training environment.
You can expect to learn a lot in roughly two hours, and have a good time, too!
