What an amazing photography trip to the very beautiful Iceland. If you are a photographer this is a must go location. Half the size of the UK with a population under 500,000 you always feel like you are in the wilderness. Everywhere you go has stunning scenery and each location is radically different from the last. It is cold, while we there it was -19 so you must be well prepared. Travelling in a group is also a good idea as you can share driving and it feels a bit safer if you have problems. We stayed in Akureyri which was a good base to travel around the north of the country. So if in doubt, don’t worry buy a ticket and get out there you may even see the northern lights!
I have been shooting Infrared images for some time with a filter, but recently I had a simple camera converted, the Canon Rebel 1200D. It’s already produced some great results and gives me the opportunity to shoot more images outside of sunrise and sunset. Strong sunlight and midday blue skies make it possible to shoot stunning images. This image was taken at the lizard in Cornwall using a panoramic technic. The Grass looks like snow and blue skies come out black. A technique that’s well worth trying either with a Infrared filter or with a converted camera.
