We are well and truly in the midst of Aurora season here in Iceland!
Have you ever tried to photograph the Northern Lights? ⭐️ It can be tricky to auto-focus on the environment when it is near pitch-black outside. The easiest way to do it is to switch your lens to manual focus and turn the focus ring to infinity. If your lens is not able to be manually focused, then pre-focus to infinity during the daytime and mark out the point with a piece of tape so that you’ll be able to find it easily in the dark.
A better way to set your focus is to switch to Live View mode ✨ Point your camera at a bright
object in the distance, such as lights or stars, then magnify the object and carefully turn the focus ring on your lens until the object is as sharp as you can get it to be.
