Sure am happy I got my new computer with HD & 3D Nvidia geforce graphics card before +David Marx completed this spectacular time lapse capture of the Aurora Borealis!!!

Hats off David, this is elegantly beautiful work! So well captures both the sense of time, as well as timelessness. I'm curious ~ what would you estimate is the amount of "real time" this time lapse footage represents?

I also had also been all prepared to say how uncannily appropriate David's musical selection for the sound track, because it so mirrored what I felt and heard in my head the one time I saw the Aurora Borealis. Then I saw the credit that the song is actually titled "Aurora" and all I could think is there is clearly some almost archetypal music people hear in their heads upon viewing this phenomena, which is very similar, and indeed even archetypal for many people.

The combo of David's time lapse movie with that song really sent the experience home for me, like being there again. Thanks David!  Next time, I'm ditching the day job to come along!!!
 
My Aurora Borealis Time-Lapse Movie
Video is best watched in Full 1080p HD at Vimeo

Watching the Aurora Borealis dance across the night sky is an amazing experience.  I have been fortunate enough to lead two Northern Lights Photography Workshops over the past couple of winters alongside my good friend Dr. +Jim Halfpenny.  I do not get to shoot a lot of photos while we are teaching so I have been learning to shoot time-lapse sequences.  Often, I set my cameras up to shoot continuously and then I walk away hoping that I aimed them at the right part of the sky.

Processing each sequence, and then compiling the clips together, has taken me months but I am delighted with the results.  A strong auroral display is a magnificent enchanting experience and time-lapse does a great job capturing the way that the Northern Lights continually shift and change throughout the night.  

This short movie is made from thousands of digital camera raw files that were captured either with a Canon 5D Mk III or a Canon 7D.  Each sequence was processed using +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and then converted to a video clip using the fantastic +LRTimelapse software. (http://bit.ly/1kWgrYF)  Ultimately, the clips were compiled together and finalized using Adobe Premiere CC.
  
My thanks to all the wonderful photographers who have made the long journey up to Churchill with me on the hopes that the skies will clear and the lights will shine.  An enormous thank you to the wonderful staff and volunteers at the +Churchill Northern Studies Centre for keeping us warm and happy.  Most of all, a huge thank you to Jim Halfpenny for organizing and leading such wonderful expeditions to the far north.

I had really longed to go on this Aurora workshop with +David Marx but he and I both agreed that it would, sadly, be a bad idea for me to quit my day job in order to attend. Now that I see his time lapse video, I'm not so sure I made the right choice. On the other hand, if I keep the day job, I can start saving some of the day job salary for a future workshop!

My first successful stab at salvaging a night photography photo I thought was totally hopeless! I wrote a blog post about how I saved this "throw away" because it was near & dear to my heart.

http://asseenbyjanineblog.com/tutorials/how-to-salvage-a-throw-away-photo/ 

But I can't wait to learn how to improve my night photography skills SOOC (straight out of camera) in the upcoming night photography show on the +Landscape Photography Show this Tuesday.

Today I was inspired to salvage an old photo I believed was a throw-away, but it was too special to me to trash it. Read about how I transformed it into something worth keeping!

Every Leo loves a great Lion photo, and this is one of my favorites I've seen in a long time. In this particular photo, a combo of the texture and tonal range in the details of the fur, plus the light and warmth in his eyes just really strike deep in the viewer. The motivational metaphors about the lion's strength of character and ability to rise are good reminders for life, making me happy I am a Leo! :-)

Introduction

"As Seen by Janine: Eyes of the World Images" is my dream come true!

I am Janine Fugere and I’ve loved photography since I was a really little kid taking pictures on a Kodak Instamatic. That love grew throughout my life and has been inspired by many master photographers. My passion for photography became a profession with the creation of "As Seen by Janine: Eyes of the World Images."

Ansel Adams perhaps best expressed my philosophy about photography: ""A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed."

Portrait specialties include High School Senior portraits, college seniors, families, babies, children, pets, couples, engagements, anniversaries, friendships, clubs, and more...

STOCK PHOTOS: My images are available for stock photo usage. "As Seen by Janine" has had stock photos published in several books and magazines. Use the CONTACT page to inquire about stock licensing options.

PHOTOGRAPHY INSTRUCTION: As both a professional photographer and a professional teacher, sharing my skills with others who wish to learn comes naturally to me. Photography instruction is available, with services appropriate for beginners, serious amateurs, or other professionals seeking to collaborate with others to improve their craft.

Bragging rights
I never lost my lifelong dream of being a photographer, even throughout helping my son overcome Autism. I work both as a Professional Photographer and also as a Special Education Teacher to help other children and to help pay for cool photo gear! I have my own professional photography business, As Seen by Janine: Eyes of the World Images, to fulfill my lifelong artistic dreams!

Janine Fisher - before and after this I was, and am again, Janine Fugere, the name I was born with. ;-) I do have some photographs published under Janine Fisher, in a book called "Coasting Along: A Bicycling Guide to the New Jersey Shore, Pine Barrens, and Delaware Bay Region" by the late Kurt B. Detwiler. I also worked as a professional portrait photographer under this name in the mid to late 1990's.
