Photographer Captures the Beauty of Latvia in Infrared Photos

During the summer of 2021, I was invited by a close friend living in Latvia to visit the country for a few days.

How to Find and Photograph the Northern Lights

The northern lights, otherwise known as aurora borealis, are the winter-time spectacle that sees northern skies filled with incredible dancing lights.

Photographing them is near the top of almost all photographers’ wish lists, but getting a good shot is decidedly difficult.
