A Night Under The Stars: Tips to Improve Your Night Photography

On Friday, my friend Earnie and I headed to Artist Point near the Mt. Baker Ski area east of Bellingham, Wash. We started late as I had to complete a football assignment for the Bellingham Herald. We did not leave Bellingham until about 11.

Our original plan was to shoot an expected display of the Aurora Borealis. However, Mother Nature decided to change its mind and send clouds to the north of us.

Scratch one night of shooting the aurora.
