I am left slightly speechless after three weeks of filming in the Arctic. Travelling on an Ice-breaker through the sea-ice revealed some of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen. Throughout our journey around Svalbard there was perpetual daylight... the hard, low sun never setting.
The clarity of the light was extraordinary and the bounce off the blue and white ice left everything touched with a coolness that is so distinctive.
The extended latitude of the Red Epic Dragon proved essential in holding the hard highlights and shadows. This as I shot regularly against the crystal clear, hard sunlight. We utilised Angenieux Optimo DP zooms on the Epic and the enormous Sigma 300-800 on the Red Scarlet B camera.
