What advice would you like to give guests coming to photograph in Abisko?
"The most complicated aspect of night photography, from my experience, is the framing of photograph. Getting to know the place you want to photograph from during the daytime helps for when it is dark. I recommend going out during daylight hours and taking some test photos, looking for good angles to photograph from. That prepares you for the nighttime, giving you a good understanding of the area you're going to.
My advice is to have patience! Do not be impatient and instead enjoy the moment. When we see the northern lights, we all want to photograph it and have the best photos but try to stop for a moment and enjoy the experience. Wild animals are always difficult to photograph as you cannot predict their behavior or get too close so with patience and good planning you can get impressive photos.
Finally, don't forget to bring warm clothes! It's quite cold up here in the winter :)"

Jesús and the rest of the Guesthouse guides can help you to take great Aurora photos, even with a mobile phone camera. If you'd like to go out on a photo tour, daytime or nighttime, you can bring your own camera or you can borrow one of ours - just make sure you have a memory card to take your photos home on (available to buy from the reception).
