Blog and more.

In case you did not know I do have my own blog where I write a little bit about everything, from captures I have done and how I do them, photography tips to tales about the "great" adventures here in northern Norway.

Go check it out and have a read here

Also if you have not visited my home page, you can go there to check out my portfolio and see the images at a much larger size then here on dA, also the images can be purchased as print from 8x12" all the way up to a massive 43x96".
Check it out here

And you can always find me on Facebook.

In other news, in less than a month the awards ceremony for Astronomy photographer of the year 2014 will take place at the Royal observatory in Greenwich, London, with 2 shortlisted images things might just happen, if not I am still very honored to be shortlisted.

I am also working on a larger landscape project which I am hoping to start up next year, will take a lot of time and effort + a few $`s to get started, but I have a lot of faith in it and it is something different in a sense from what I normally do so I could be quite cool.

I do appreciate all feedback, good and bad, and if you have any questions about photography or anything else, don´t hesitate to send me a note or leave a comment where suitable.

Have a nice one. :boogie: :woohoo:

Artist | Professional | Photography
I am hobbyist pencil artist and photographer from northern Norway.
For drawing I am leaning more towards realistic drawing, though I do mix in some fantasy now and then.

Living in a great place for landscape photography and also the northern lights, it`s rarely a dull day with the camera in hand. :D

I am self taught ( if you count looking at tutorials on the internet then I am not ), practice through learning and aspire to become as good as I can. :)

I'm still on a quest to fave your whole gallery.  It might take me a while though.  Truly your photography is an inspiration.

I saw one of your photos on the front page, incredible photography! I live in Fairbanks, Alaska and love the aurora every winter once it starts getting dark enough to see. The cold, not so much.
Are you using digital cameras? Your photos are stunning! I'm trying to figure out what entry-level camera I may get this holiday season with the capability of some decent aurora shots. We shall see.
Keep up the amazing work!

Thanks so much :)
I use the Nikon D800E, which is rated as pro gear, but it is certainly not a requirement in order to take such photos, I chose such level of gear due to so much time I spend capturing the night sky.
If you are looking into some entry level gear that will serve you well I can recommend the Nikon D3300 + the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8, it has high enough iso sensitivity so you do not have to rely on too long exposures and the lens is high quality and will give you very clean and sharp images even at f/2.8, it will give you very good aurora images.
General recommended settings with that combination is between 3 and 20 seconds exposure time, between iso 400 and 1600, if you are around those values you can capture auroras from the very faint to the extremely powerful.

excellent! Yeah, it seems that the average camera lens is around f/3 or 4, and I know that that is a big part of it. I will have to scout around for good deals on the lenses. Thanks for the info! I managed to catch some okay ones last year with a Canon EOS with an average lens, but the autofocus was too loose and would move at the slightest touch in manual mode, and it just couldn't catch it without including noise.
We shall see! Thanks for the info and keep up the great work!
