Shooting in the dramatic Norwegian Arctic with a Red Magnesium Weapon A cam and a Red Epic Dragon in a DJI Ronin Gimbal.
The arctic landscape is always ideal for photography.
Hard, low light, dramatic sky, super-clean atmospheric conditions and all the beautiful snow and ice.
I used two Angenieux lenses on the A camera, the Optimo 16-42mm and the 30-80mm.
In the gimbal we were running a Duclos 11-16mm for extremely wide, low gliding shots.
Working in these lower temperatures definitely sets some logistical challenges... keeping your hands warm while being able to work being high on the list of these. Battery life was aided by a mix of thermal covers and chemical hand warmers. The auto black balance on the Weapon worked like a dream at these lower temperatures... keeping the camera at a constant green light and ready to shoot.
The gimbal, mounted via an Easyrig from the back and side of a Skidoo, turning the bumpy ride into infinite smooth track.
