Timelapse - The Northern Lights

Primary tabs

Following earlier work in timelapse technique and have been widely awarded in national and international festivals specialty, I intend with this project, achieve some fund support to my photographic expedition (timelapse) to Norway to record the Aurora Borealis (The Northern Lights).

This project aims to gather some financing support to part of my photographic expedition, specifically the cost of travel and accommodation, in Tromso at Norway. There will be seven days of stay in that part of the world, in regions where weather conditions are extreme. Yet the light of the "Northern Lights" will certainly be a good reward so I can produce a timelapse that portrays the phenomenon and to present it to all Portuguese people.
