Photo Trip Senja Winter Landscape – Do you enjoy photographing landscapes in the winter?… Is the answer yes then the photo trip to Senja is perfect for you!
The northern latitude means that magical winter light lies softly over the majestic landscape for most of the day. It offers dramatic coastal landscapes surrounded by massive fjord views but also good chances for Northern lights.
Early morning and you can just distinguish the fjord landscape, it’s time to set off for the first photo shoot. Soon, the dim dawn light is illuminated and creativity begins with finding interesting motifs. So far north, the light stays soft for a long time to keep the sun low during this period, which creates fantastic winter light. The week continues with photography at dawn and dusk, but even day trips offer fine landscapes.
One afternoon we hike at a leisurely pace (adapted to your ability) on snowshoes up in the mountains to photograph the last sunlight until it begins to dim. An experience to enjoy the place itself but also the shooting of several different subjects at sunset makes this a real highlight during the photo tour.
We live in a cabin down by the fjord for a great experience even when we are not taking pictures. Here, workshops are held in image processing and other joint reviews. You get individual coaching with technique and composition etc. Learn to plan your motifs according to the direction and time of the light.
Prepare for many days with lots of photography and good fellowship!
