It's a special privilege for a photographer to get the chance to work in the soft light of a sun that never sets.
Just when you think you have squeezed every last drop out of the light, it changes. Shadows look different. Reflections become more vibrant. And you can't leave. You lose all sense of time and sleep easily slips away.
Up in the Arctic this time of year, it's called the midnight sun. Its warm light is comparable to what occurs in photography's "golden hour" — just after sunrise or just before sunset. Instead of lasting an hour, in this case, it lasts all night long. And it's captivating.
