beginner aurora photography class
Your start into night- and Aurora-photography!
You can come as total beginner and you will learn from us in one evening how to take beautiful pictures of the Northern Lights and create life long lasting memories.
Our beginner class is a real beginner photography class with the main focus on night- and Aurora-photography, so you will benefit from this class for much longer than only for your time here in Alaska. After a theoretical part where we explain you the basic concept of digital photography and the main settings for your camera, we will go out and shoot together. We will help you set up your camera, compose wonderful pictures and explain you, how to handle your gear in the cold temperatures of Alaska.
We recommend to book this class at the beginning of your stay here in Fairbanks: this way you will be well trained for the following nights to shoot the Aurora on your own.
This class can always take place: should the Aurora not be visible in that night, we will take pictures of the moon or the million stars you see here in Alaska or fun shots like light painting or burning steel wool.
If you do not own an advanced camera good enough to shoot at night, you can rent a camera from us for that night for a small fee – for that please have a look at our rental page here.
If you are only interested to take pictures with your phone, this might be not the right class but if you want to have a look into „real photography“, this class is a great opportunity to check out how it feels, to take photos with a DSLR camera.
