Lapland photo tips
In these Lapland photo tips we'll cover some of the specialities of working with Lapland photos.
Here in Lapland you can experience
things that you don't experience any other place. But we'll also cover some general photograhpy things as they are important in
connection with Lapland photography.
The most important thing is, of course, to be at the right place when the lighting is at its best. Often this is early in the morning,
even before the sun rises.
Late in the afternoon is another nice time to shoot as the sun is setting or already has set.
You don't always need the best equipment to get great shots. Keep the sun at your back or to the sides. (But if you may of course
experiment with the sun in front of you.)

The ever changing light
Photography is impossible without light.
Some say that the definition of "photography" is "to paint with light". Light goes in
certain directions. And it has varying intensity and colour.
Sometimes it can be wise to get up and out before the sun is up. This way you can prepare and wait for the best morning
The best times to shoot landscape pictures are the couple of hours after sunrise in the morning and a couple of
hours before sunset until it gets dark.
