Presentation...

Once again greetings one year on from the MML to all photographers of mountain, nature and adventure, while at the same time welcoming the 2014 competition, its XXV Edition, and inviting you all to participate.

Year after year photographers from all over the world take part in this contest, having done it already from 75 different countries. With the passing of the years has become a meeting place not only for widely recognized international photographers, but also for undiscovered talent and new photographers.

In this special edition, the competition has been divided into two clearly differentiated sections: on the one hand Mountain & Adventure; and on the other hand Nature, so the thematic diversity, which increases its presence in each edition, could make that all photos might not compete on equal terms. Both sections will have identical first absolute prizes for each of them. In short, we face two competitions within a single photographic competition.

Every spring the prizewinners, other contestants and fans in general make a date with the towns of Infiesto and Oviedo (Principality of Asturias) in order to celebrate the traditional prize-giving ceremony and inauguration of the exhibition. After the festival the exhibition, with high quality copies, begins its annual itinerary, to date having been shown in over 100 different locations and admired by thousands of spectators.

With the rules, instructions and advice provided you will easily be able to prepare your photographs to compete in a contest whose only purpose has always been, and continues to be, the promotion of those values inherent in the mountain and nature, and the publicizing of the artistic work of the photographers who each year take part.

One more year, good luck to everyone and good light.

 04/04/2014.- NORTHERN LIGHT SKIING, Making Of

Fredrik Schenholm/24 MML-Photo
I have been trying to capture an image combining skiing and northern light for a long time. So many things must be in place: a mountain, snow, a skier, the right geomorphology and of course - the northern light.
On 11th February 2013. Oscar Hübinette and I checked the northern light forecast and it looked promising. We got ready and headed up the mountain around 7:45 pm the black sky turned green. It was time to capture the image. I placed the camera on the tripod with the desired composition. Before turning the camera’s lens on manual focus, I set the focus on the spot I wanted to capture Oscar’s turn. After that I prepared the flash, placing its head on the monopod. Before going live I made a test shoot to see the light conditions and what exposure to use. Now we were ready! I opened up the shutter with the remote trigger system. I placed myself 5 meters above the camera holding the monopod with the flash head in my right arm, and the flash trigger system in my left hand. After app. 20 seconds with an open shutter I told Oscar to go down and he did it; as he made the turn I fired the flash. After that I headed back to the camera and closed the shutter. And finally, after many years of trying, we captured an image combining skiing and northern light. We were lucky as well, the composition was perfect with the northern light in a really good position to the slope Oscar was skiing on!.

Equipo: Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon 16 -35mm, Elincrom Sistema flash Quadra , mandos a distancia para la cámara y flash, un trípode y un monopié.
Esquiador: Oscar Hübinette. Lugar: Isla Senja, Noruega.
