Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in northern Norway (Ersfjordbotn) in January 2019. My wife and I spent one week in Tromsø and were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights during six nights out of seven. This was the most stunning display though, even a Norwegian photographer we met said something like "oh, now that's special... ;-).
Time
The photo was taken at 23:00. Usually the lights appeared after 10 and before midnight during our stay.
Lighting
You can see that the Northern Lights were very strong, because some areas of the sky are even overexposed (white). The are the photo was taken was almost completely free of artificial light.
Equipment
This photo was shot on a tripod with my Fuji X-T2 camera and a Walimex 12mm 1:2.0 lens. Shutter speed was 15s at f/2,8.
Inspiration
I'm addicted to Northern Lights since I saw them for the first time in Iceland in 2017.
Editing
The photo is developed in Lightroom with the usual small adjustments like clarity, noise removal. white balance. No other major processing was involved though.
In my camera bag
Fuji X-T2, Fujinon XF16-55, Fujinon XC50-230, Walimex 12mm, external flash, tripod, polarizing filter, ND filter, timer, remote control, sensor swaps... for the winter times I also carry a USB lens heater.
Feedback
You need to be in the right place at the right time... that's 90% of Northern Lights photography... Apart from that I would say: Practice! Play with different settings in night photography at home so that you know what you have to do when suddenly the lights are flashing in the sky... One important thing is not to expose too long, because if you do the stars will start to "move" and not look sharp anymore.
