Here's one with minimal tilt and no shift.

I posted this in the astronomy forum seeking help on how to best capture the aurora borealis, but will copy and paste it here as I'll be using this lens and would appreciate any wisdom I can get:

Wife and I are spending the first week of January in the area of Tromsø, Norway in hopes of seeing the northern lights. Tromsø is on the 69.4 parallel north of the Arctic Circle, and assuming clouds don't rain on our parade we'll be maximizing our chances to see a display.

I'd like to be as prepared as possible regarding optimum settings - if it shows up at all, I might have one opportunity to capture it and I don't wish to be experimenting at that moment. Any suggestions on ISO/shutter speed combinations? I do fear I will expose for too long and lose the "curtain" effect, but I'd also like to ensure I expose the foreground too.

Will be using a 5DII + TSE 24L II (f/3.5) Any wisdom you gents can impart will be appreciated.

Kenny,

Im by no means an expert on this and just seeing the aurora never mind photographing it is on the list of things I must do before I pop my clogs but some of this may be of interest.

Back in 2011 (when I thought I was going to Iceland but didnt :( ) I asked some questions on this thread - https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=827522 . There is a good bit of info in there. He said he shot with the EF-s 10-22, ISO 800 and 20s for the shots on page 1 and also used the Samyang 14mm @2.8, 4s and iso3200. This might give you a starting point to factor up what your settings will be at f/3.5. By my reckoning f/3.5 - 8 secs - ISO 3200 would be a good starting point and tweak from there.

With regards to focus and foreground interest, Im currently trying to find out if hyperfocal focussing will help for milky way shots in another thread as the norm seems to be manually focussing on a star or focussing to infinity on the focus scale. My thoughts are you should be able to focus this lens at 10m at f/3.5 which would give you focus from 4.74m to infinity. So as long as your foreground interest isnt closer than 5m roughly it will be in focus and so will the night sky.

Hope that helps

Here's something I read recently over at Dpreview:

http://www.dpreview.co​m …-the-shot-winter-paradise (external link)

As with anything being shot on the tilt-shifts, after especially shift is applied, best to rely on histogram display in the playback than the real time exposure info.



If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.

This is very helpful, thanks - truly, any insight I can gain before leaving will make me much more comfortable with the faint possibility of seeing the lights and not screwing it up.

I will get to Iceland one day. I feel like that needs to be a 10 day trip at minimum, though, and we just didn't have that kind of time. Norway is getting rushed as it is. :-/

Decided to dial the blue down a bit on my milky way shot. New version posted above. It was bugging me too much

This shot was taken just after midnight. The light once again is light pollution
