Photography workshop in Riisitunturi National Park

Riisitunturi national park is one of the best winter photography locations in forest Lapland. It is a place of a surreal-like alien world winter wonderland. One of the snowiest place in Finland, snow-covered trees and beautiful arctic light is a combo that makes it a world-class photographic spot.

Chasing The Arctic Light

Chasing The Arctic Light

The polar night in Lapland is not complete darkness; it's more like twilight, lasting a few hours between the "nights."  If you want to shoot mostly night scenes, then the polar night is not an issue. Otherwise, it might be a bit challenging, especially in the areas where polar night lasts for weeks. Cloud coverage during the polar night means "complete" darkness around the clock.  You will get most hues during the last days of the polar night as the sun is already close to the horizon.
