Last weekend, the Northern Lights were reported to be highly visible in our area. I thought this would be a good time to check out my new 50mm lens that I bought specifically for night shooting. I got my gear all set up outside, checked and double checked my settings and then waited.
The sky was full of stars and I was hopeful. I could also see the Milky Way to the South.
At about 12:30 am I went out and took my last shots.
I didn’t get the greens that everyone else did but I’d say it was an okay attempt.
Clearly, night and star photography is something I need to work on.
That and photo editing, which I not a fan of but am coming to realize is something I am going to have to embrace if I want to take my photography to the next level, so to speak.
