Aurora Borealis are a natural phenomena that can be seen specially on the Earth Poles. The North Pole ones are called Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights, while the South Pole are Aurora Australis or Southern Lights. They appear because of a collision from the particles that form the sun wind against the magnetic fields of the Earth.
The scene of this video is Iceland, a place with amazing landscapes at any time of the year, but it’s in winter when this country attracts the most attention because of the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.
Enrique Pacheco has made this video during many personal expeditions and workshops in Iceland from the last three years. Enrique Pacheco is an expert in Iceland landscape and Aurora Borealis shooting, with more than 12 successful trips. If you are interested in travel to Iceland and live this unique experience, Enrique Pacheco offers workshops, in which you’ll learn the time-lapse technique, improve your photography skills and enjoy the amazing phenomena of the Aurora Borealis.
This video has been made with the time-lapse technique, using DSLR cameras to capture consecutive pictures and then put them together. Most of the shots have 10 and 20 seconds of exposition in between, were shot with wide lenses and with the maximum aperture. ISO 1600 and 3200 are the main ones.
The equipment that Enrique Pacheco used was Sony a99 and Zeiss 16-35 f2.8 for most of the shots, sometimes also Sony RX1.
