This is an image of Segla, on the island of Senja, Norway. We camped on the summit, and woke up at 4h30 to capture the sunrise. What caught my eyes when the light appeared, was the separation and the different ambiance between both side of the mountains. It was like the cold obscurity of night was literally banished by the warm and comforting diffused light of rising sun, promising us a new day of adventure.
The mist on background also added some mystery to the overall view.
I used a polarizer in order to enhance the separation and to kill the water reflection. Different post-production technics have been used to show the viewer the scene as I saw and felt it.
Author: Professional studio, reportage, commercial photographer for twelve years, I work for several companies and magazines in France. I started to interest seriously to landscape photography in 2015, it was a way for me to connect with the great nature, and translate the strong feelings I was experiencing by immersing in those raw places in a different way than I could have with words.
I had the chance to have my landscape images internationally awarded in 2018 and 2019, and it’s now becoming a part of my work, since I’m giving private workshops on landscape photography and post-production lessons.
