Finnmark 2008

Polar light photography

This gallery presents photographs made during a workshop in polar light photography at Øytun Folkehøyskole in early December 2008. It was my first trip to Finnmark, and I was quite excited to experience the polar light. At this time of the year the day had only a couple of hours with decent (i.e. normal…) light, and an astonishing bluish tone. Most of the other participants in this workshop were students at the photography course taught at Øytun, and I think the rest of us felt envy about staying for a year in this beautiful environment.
