Aurora Borealis

This is my latest aurora borealis timelapse. The composer is Per Wollen, and vocals by Silje Beate Nilssen.

I’ve used a Canon EOS 5D mark II with a Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II, a TC-80N3 timer and a tripod.
The timelapse is taken in Tromsø, Norway, and it is captured from november 2009 to april 2010. Every single sequence in the timelapse is put togheter by 2-300 stillframes.
ISO-levels from 1000 to 1600 @ f/2.8 and exposure times from 3-6 seconds.

Every single stillframe is taken in Canons raw-format and edited in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. I did some whitebalance and contrast-adjustments. I then exported the raw-files as JPEG in best quality and then imported in Adobe Aftereffects.

EXIF-data from one still-frame:

Nordlys over Berg i Tromsø

Here is some of the stills from the sequence, uploaded to my flickr-account.


This is my aurora timelapse from 2009. Captured with Canon EOS 5D (mark I) and without a timer. I just pressed the shutter-bottom very many times. ;)
Lens: Canon 28mm f/1.8 and 50mm f/1.4.

    Dette her var virkelig helt utrolig bra!! Noe så vakkert og nydelig, foreviget på en så bra måte… Jeg håper inderlig jeg får sjansen til å prøve det samme engang med mitt 5D mk II…=)
    Den timer´n du bruker ser fancy ut, men mye mere avansert enn den trådutløsren jeg hadde til min gamle 350D.. Må sjekke ut hva denne TC-80N3´en er til for! =)

      Hei :) takk for kommentar! Ja den timeren er kjekk å ha, men ingen nødvendighet. Man kan også bare sette kameraet i serie-modus, og så bare gaffe fast utløserknappen :)
