dear brothers & sisters,
80% chance I will be going to Norway to shoot Northern Lights in Feb 2015.
May I ask for your advice on how to shoot the lights?
I will be carrying two D4, 70 200mm f2.8 and 24 70mm f2.8, as well as a tripod and remote release.
May I ask what settings do I use?
F2.8? ISO? speed of the shutter?
Do I use high ISO with faster shutter speed or low ISO with eg 15 secs speed?
DO I use manual or auto focus? Is it at manual focus and at infinity? I have not done this before.
Where do I focus? at some trees (eg) or at the light itself?
Do I need 14 24 lens?
Is 4 days enough or do I need longer?
What white balance do I use? Auto?
I have only one tripod, meaning only one of my cameras can be mounted. Should I buy another?
Which is a better lens? 70 200 or 24 70?
Any other things I should know??
A side question. I can spare more than one month. question is the daylight hours are very short. Other than northern lights, is it worth spending time in Norway in Feb? In winter, public transport is difficult and I am not familiar to drive in snow. It will be my first time in Norway
I am a novice and thank you for your patience.
