I created How To Artistically Photograph The Aurora with the aspiring aurora photographer in mind. The guide covers the fundamentals of aurora photography in great detail and provides tips on planning & executing artistic aurora images that stand out from rest. A strong composition is worth so much more than having the best equipment, so forget about buying that expensive f/2.8 lens or Sony a7S III camera until you learn to frame better shots!
