Concepts of Aurora Photography


Along with the thrill of experiencing the Aurora comes the reward of making your own really good photograph of Nature’s Greatest Light Show.   The City of Yellowknife is pleased to host an aurora photo workshop, led by Yellowknife photographer, author and tour guide Bill Braden. In this two-hour workshop, you will learn basic camera settings and technique along with stories and the science behind the aurora.
