The Northern Lights swirl and dance above the tundra in Churchill, Manitoba.
Photography Tip: Night photography requires strong raw image processing skills. Polishing up this image, for example, required work in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and DxO OpticsPro 10 Elite Edition.
Lightroom handles the vast majority of the color and the contrast adjustments that all of my night images require. But DxO OpticsPro 10 offers noise reduction repair tools that are more powerful than Lightroom's equivalents. Fortunately working with both programs together is easy.
If you would like to learn how to shoot and process images like this one please join me this winter for my Night Skies and the Northern Lights Photography Workshop up at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre.
