This course teaches you the essential information to capture better images in the field but also several processing techniques to make the images stand out.


Photographing the Northern Lights is an experience that will stick with you the rest of your life. It's a highlight for most outdoor photographers or nature lovers.

Unfortunately, capturing good photographs of the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, isn't as straight forward as one would like. 

As if night photography isn't already difficult enough, adding the dancing Northern Lights makes things a lot more complicated. 

It's a genre of photography that requires a solid understanding of your camera and a handful of in-field or post-processing techniques. Not acknowledging these factors lead to images that fail to convey the amazing experience you had. 

That doesn't need to be the case. Northern Lights photography doesn't need to be stressful and difficult. By implementing just a few extra approaches into your workflow, you'll soon capture images that are worthy an award. 

Through this course, you'll learn all the essentials of capturing and processing images of the Northern Lights.

What You'll Learn

Northern Lights Photography Made Easy is a comprehensive course that's designed to help you capture amazing images of the night sky's most amazing phenomenon. It covers both in-field and post-processing techniques and is taught in an easy-to-understand manner.

In-Field Guide to Northern Lights Photography

Filmed in the picturesque Lofoten Islands of Northern Norway, you'll be guided through the exact steps that I follow in creating all my Northern Lights images. Here you'll not only learn the ideal camera settings but also how to approach a scene in the dark.

The in-field video teaches you how to master:
  • Camera gear for night photography
  • Applying the best settings for any Northern Lights scenario
  • Creating compelling compositions
  • Overcoming the camera's limitations

  • Those who have witnessed the Northern Lights know that its intensity can change in just seconds. This means you need to adapt to any situation and that there isn't a 'one approach that always works'. Through this part of the course, you'll learn how to adapt to any situation and capture the best possible files to work with.

    Post-Processing in Lightroom & Photoshop

    The foundations for a good photo are laid in the field but it's in post-processing that we make it stand out. This is the step that many fail to acknowledge. You don't need to make huge adjustments though. Sometimes, a few corrections in a photo editor is enough to make a difference.

    In the post-processing part of this course, you'll learn different ways of processing your Northern Lights photographs in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. There are workflows here that are suited for both complete beginners and more experienced users.

    These videos don't only focus on how to work with color, contrast and luminosity for a night photo but also how to obtain the highest quality possible. Use these techniques and you'll be able to make large prints that aren't ruined by high amounts of noise. 

    The post-processing videos will teach you:
    • How to prepare Northern Lights photographs in Adobe Lightroom
    • How to focus stack and exposure blend images in Adobe Photoshop
    • How to work with color, exposure and contrast for the Northern Lights
    • Useful techniques for processing night images
    •  ... and a complete Adobe Lightroom workflow

    Note that the techniques taught here are just as suitable for 'regular' night photography as for Northern Lights photography.

    A Downscaled Workfile is Included

    You might not have been able to photograph the Northern Lights yet, perhaps it's something you've planned for in the near future, so I've included a downscaled file for you to work with through the course. This makes it easy for you to apply and learn the useful post-processing techniques that will help your night photographs stand out.
