Introducing Light through Photography of Light

In photography light is not only the major force, which interacts with the photosensitive layer of the film or sensor of a digital camera and thus produces images; very often light itself is chosen to be the object of photography, its main model, expressing the key idea of the entire picture. The sparkling lights of a night city or a powerful directed light beam from the beacon on the seashore, colorful fireworks or fantastic aurora – light sources can be different, but the nature remains the same – powerful, emotional, vivid, and meaningful. Along with the camera, light is often treated as the only assistant, helping a photographer create real masterpieces of the traditional photography art.

Images, presented below, illustrate the whole versatility of light in the photography – from traditional “live” pictures of light to futuristic images, emerging from the symbiosis between a traditional photography and hi-tech image rendering techniques. It is still amazing how different light can be – at some pictures it is just a subdued ray, struggling through the fog, but at the others light appears in the form of a magnificent phenomenon of aurora, enlightening tremendous amount of the night sky. In any case, humans nourish some special, even primeval respect to light. After all, it is the source of life on our planet and also the source of optimism, joy, and inspiration, isn’t it?

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
