I would love to buy this photo from you ? well a copy . I just love your work . I can't wate to see the north Lights . { in person }

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this picture in our camp. Luckily I was at work as that evening as an Northern Lights guide, the whole sky exploded.
Time
as said before, i was working as a northern lights guide so this is taken late at night, luckily non of my customers walked in to the picture.
Lighting
That evening the whole sky exploded with northern lights in all colors, probably took two thousand pictures that night, but most of the images my customers ruined by walking infront of the camera.
Equipment
As always i walk around with a Canon :) Camera: Canon 6D Lens: Samyang 14mm F2.8 tripod: Vanguard alta 233 Settings used: aperture: 2.8, ISO: 2500, Exposure: 8sec, I used the liveview to zoom in to find the right focus (zoom on liveview not the lens).
Inspiration
I have seen someone else who has taken pictures of the Northern Lights and a lavvo (Traditional Sami tent) so I was thinking that I would love to have my own version. And since we have many lavvo's in our camp I just had to wait for the "right" kind of light.
Editing
I have cropped the image a little, did not want parts of a snowmobile in the picture. and also adjusted the colors a bit so that the picture will "pop"
In my camera bag
My canon 6D (Of course), Canon EF 24-70/2,8 L Usm, Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD, Samyang/Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC(low budget, but a perfect northern lights lense), Vanguard alta 233 tripod, unnamed cable release and some cleaning equipment. all that inside my Lowepro Photo Sport 200 AW.
Feedback
Learn to know your equipment, use a fast lense and a good tripod. yeah and also have patience :)
