Beautiful beautiful work my dude. Do you happen to have any shots in ultra wide? Panoramic shots? I have a 32:9 monitor and good background photos are hard to come by.

This really is a beautiful shot, absolutely stunning. Are there hi-res copies uploaded somewhere?


Tannerite2 t1_jas15qm wrote

Am I blind or is there no crescent moon?


theartificialkid t1_jasxydo wrote

It’s the thing that looks like the sun. That’s what the moon looks like when you expose for a night landscape.


Tannerite2 t1_jasy7iy wrote

But why say crescent moon when we can't see if it is or not? It might as well be a full moon in this picture.


buckydamwitty t1_jax84cs wrote

Fellow photographers may wonder why the moon didn't overexpose even further, which can be explained by the moon being a crescent.


Tihifas t1_jar7n24 wrote

Very cool and beautiful. Is it one photo, or a composite?


Nateloobz OP t1_jar88l2 wrote

Single exposure. Very fortunate to have a night where the moon and the aurora were similar brightness. A good example of being lucky rather than good haha.

edit: figured it might be relevant to link my video about camera gear and settings for photographing the northern lights:

If you don't mind, I'd like to turn this into a massive cross stitch pattern. It's gorgeous. Just for personal use of course. It would be great at the cabin


Nateloobz OP t1_jasvilx wrote

Woahhh, that would be cool!


SaltLakeCitySlicker t1_jaswhl9 wrote

I'm a bit busy today but if you're into x stitch I will pm the pattern. Or send results! This one will take a helluva long time though


Primed_in t1_jar76gt wrote

What’s your editing process and camera setup for a shot like this? I’m relatively new to the hobby and trying to get to this kinda level


DanzakFromEurope t1_jar9qgb wrote

Wow, coming to Lofoten around March 28th. Hopefully will see something similar. I am really thinking about buying a wider lens for the trip or using 24mm (FF).


Nateloobz OP t1_jara8a9 wrote

I would definitely recommend a wider lens for up there, it's a very expansive place. You can also rent a lens if you're not ready to commit to something forever.

I hope you get to see the lights, also! March 28th is pretty late in the year, as of March 31st there is officially no more nighttime in Lofoten until September 14th.


DanzakFromEurope t1_jarc16a wrote

We are going on a 14 day roadtrip (from Czechia) so renting is out of the question because buying a lens would cost almost the same (and I could resell it after I return). I am already taking a 35L bag full of photo/video stuff so space might be a concern too 😅.

Don't know why, but I didn't check when the "no night" period starts....hopefully it will still be somewhat dark (we are also staying in Abisko and then driving down through Sweden). We have to be in Narvik on 30.3. (One of us is flying back to Oslo) so maybe we will be around Narvik from 26-30th.


zb0t1 t1_jarq9cw wrote

Risky to travel all the way there for a shot like this without checking if it's still gonna be possible! But if you can adapt and find other things to do as an alternative in the worst case then you can still spend a good time. Norway has beautiful sites, nature etc. Have fun!


DanzakFromEurope t1_jarqoez wrote

Yeah, we are not traveling all the way upthere just to take a pic :D We have some friends in Oslo, so we will be staying there for a couple of days and than move on. It's more of a "turn off trip" because some of us are going through a somewhat difficult moments :D


Zoidfarbb t1_jas1b9e wrote

Only time I was fortunate to leave the states to travel was to go to visit Norway and Svolvaer was one of the places I got to see. I wish I had left with a picture like this as that area was something else. This picture is fantastic and it makes me happy

What the fuck are you rambling about? It's not in everyone's backyard. That's why he said near Svolvaer, Norway, -- go look it up on the map.

Also, he doesn't need to steal anything. He's a professional photographer who does this for a living. You would understand that if you put down your hatred goggles and looked at some of his other postings here. Man you're completely ridiculous.

>No asking is pretty normal. Whats NOT normal is stalking.

Do you even know what that word means? No one is stalking you. Go get a grip on yourself. Either way, your line of questioning and accusing the OP of stealing is what a delusional idiot would say. Go troll elsewhere.
