Lost Horizon Creative is proud to announce the release of its latest project:  Light Side Up. More than a year in planning, the highly anticipated film documents the journey of three adventurous photographers as they attempt to become the first film crew ever to capture cinema-quality footage of the northern lights from the edge of space. The full film will premiere on December 8, at 7:00 am PST, on Nate Luebbe’s YouTube channel. The YouTube Premiere will feature live Q&A with the filmmakers, as well as interactive chat during the screening. A few rare photos of the northern lights have been shared from the International Space Station, but options for high-altitude photography are very limited for civilians. Professional photographer Nate Luebbe has spent his career chasing new perspectives, but it wasn’t until late 2019, while watching a hot air balloon launch that he realized he could use a weather balloon to send a camera directly into the stratosphere—thereby utilizing a relatively unexplored avenue for nature photography. High-altitude balloons are launched every day for scientific research, but Luebbe wanted to push the envelope by using a professional camera system. With a highly specialized, full-frame camera designed specifically for ultra-low-light imaging, Luebbe and the team were able to capture higher-quality footage than ever before. After a full year of research, engineering, and fabricating custom stabilization systems, the first successful flight happened on September 26, 2020. Quick stats: Balloon size: 10 feet on the ground, 38 feet diameter at bursting altitude Flight duration: 3 hours and 15 minutes Maximum altitude: 122,600 feet (37,369m) Ascent velocity: 1,000 feet/min Air temperature: approx-100ºF The payload consisted of the brand-new Sony a7S III (a new camera designed specifically for ultra-low-light applications), redundant GPS tracking systems, additional batteries, and chemical heat packets. Once filled, the payload ascended for just shy of 2 hours and, at 122,600 feet, the balloon burst, sending the payload back to earth under a parachute, to be recovered by helicopter the next day. The first flight by the team was unsuccessful when an unforeseen cold front caused the balloon to stop ascending and float sideways for multiple hours, at which point the GPS systems failed.

Wow! What a crazy year we have all had. Between dealing with this pandemic, the uncertainty within the economy, and the lack of travel over the last few months, I think it is safe to say that none of us predicted we would be here at the start of the year. I know I didn’t…. Way back in February, my good buddy, Stan Moniz, and I reached out to B&H with an idea to film a video project for photographers up above the Arctic Circle, in the Lofoten Islands of Norway. The goal was to put together a video mini-series that covered nearly every facet of a photo adventure. We covered everything from the gear we brought with us, to how to research and plan for your own adventure, to in-field tips and tricks and much more. We walked you through how to capture everything from waterfalls to seascapes and even covered both the in-field and post-processing side of creating time-lapse videos of the Northern Lights. But after we all collectively experienced the last six months together, I suppose you can see where this is going. Right as we finished this project, the world began to shut down, and to be 100% honest, it just didn’t feel like the right time to release the series, so we put it on hold, until now. So, while International travel is still currently on hold, at least for U.S. citizens, there are many beautiful local destinations worth exploring and capturing that you can safely experience today. While this series was shot in Norway in winter, it was always geared to give you the knowledge, tools and inspiration to start planning for your own photo adventures, wherever they might be. Photographer Colby Brown carefully composing his next photograph To give you a little taste of what to expect in this video series, let’s spend a few minutes helping you plan your next adventure. While most people don’t want to admit it, one of the most important aspects of any photo adventure is often found in the planning and research stage. This is important not just because you need to know the kind of weather you will be experiencing, but also the kind of images you want to capture. While Instagram has become a bit of a love/hate relationship for many photographers these days, it can be one of the best real-time location research platforms, as well. For Stan and me, we use it to not only get a feel for what kind of images have been shot at a given location, but also to get real-time updates on what a location looks like, often on the same day we are searching on the platform. By using the search feature and selecting the “Recent” tab, you can now tell if fall colors are about to pop at a specific location before you venture out or whether a certain trailhead you want to explore is still open. Because so many people use Instagram, it can be a cash cow of information for photographers to help you make those important last-second decisions. Using Instagram can give you a preview of the location you intend to go photograph. Once I am finally out there in the field, one of my favorite approaches to landscape photography is to avoid being an “anchor.” What does that mean? Too often I see photographers search for the perfect composition at a given location, only to find something they like and then literally sit in that one spot the entire time they are there. While I can appreciate that level of dedication to that one composition, the reality is that those photographers will only come away with a hundred different versions of the exact same shot once the light has faded. Instead, try to be more agile and adaptable. When possible, I want to scout out three or four different unique angles of a scene so that I can jump between them depending on the light I am experiencing. This way I can maximize my time out in the field by coming away with a large number of different photographs and scenes from a single shooting session.
