Five Tips for Taking Photos of the Midnight Sun

Learn below how to photograph this strange phenomena to share with friends and keep your memories fresh.

The golden glow is what many people remember most about their midnight sun experiences. This tends to accentuate colours and elongate shadows, which provides plenty of scope for dramatic and expressive photography.


Tip 1: Since colours are more vivid in the midnight sun, it is a good idea to keep images simple, concentrating on two or three colours at the most to avoid a confusing image for the viewer. 

Tip 2: Foreground images can be used to frame subjects in mid and deep field, creating a better sense of three-dimensionality. 

Tip 3: To maximize the impact of the light sky on a landscape, compose your picture in the viewfinder by keeping the horizon a third of a way from the bottom; this will help your camera to expose properly. 

Tip 4: Sign up for a six-day photography course and half board tour of the Lofoten Islands is offered by UK travel specialist Tatra

Tip 5: If you are in the Lyngen Alps, consider the midnight sun photography courses at Lyngen Lodge.
