Capturing the Magic of the Midnight Sun: Tips for Photographing in the Sea

Learn how to capture the breathtaking beauty of the midnight sun with Polar Adventures' expert tips. Join our Midnight Cruise and practice your photography skills while immersing yourself in the enchanting Arctic landscape.

Exploring Tromsø's Midnight Cruise

Embark on a memorable cruise around Tromsø during the midnight sun season, from May 21st to July 22nd. Spend three hours enjoying the comforts of our cozy onboard spaces or venture out to capture your unique perspective of the midnight cruise.

Unleash the Colors of Nature

To truly showcase the vibrant colors of the midnight sun, we share five valuable tips during the cruise:

Tip #1: Enhancing Colors

Enhance the colors in your photos by framing your shots with a maximum of three dominant colors, allowing each hue to shine without overwhelming the composition.

Tip #2: Adding Perspective

Include a person in your photo to create a sense of scale and add depth to the majestic landscapes, elevating the grandeur of the places visited.

Tip #3: Optimizing Exposure

In automatic mode, position the horizon at one-third of the bottom frame to optimize the impact of light on the landscape, ensuring a well-exposed and visually compelling photograph.

Tip #4: Powering Up

Ensure you have at least two fully charged batteries, as temperature differences in the Arctic Circle can deplete battery life faster, even during the extended daylight hours of the midnight sun.

Tip #5: Playing with Shadows

Experiment with the interplay of shadows and light to introduce captivating contrast and add depth to the golden orange glow of the midnight sun.
