Lights and colors portfolio

As we have described in our photographic vision, our main business is artistic photography. To show our contemplative and artistic interpretation of nature, we have chosen to use the lights and colors as well as the use of black and white. These are two totally different forms of expressions that are dependent on the photograph and its purpose.

Using lights and colors to show the beauties of nature

In our approach named “Lights and Colors”, we are used to saying that we behave like seekers of lights and colors. We always try to glean these little magical moments whether during the blue hour or the famous quarter-hour magic where the glowing tones blaze the earth and the sky giving the impression of joining the creation of the world. The term gleaning is not overused.

We must constantly look for the right framing and good compositions to sublimate nature. We must take what nature offers us. As photographers, we are only guests and we must await the goodwill of Mother Nature. Sometimes nothing happens, and we have to come back some other time. However, sometimes, the shows are amazing and everything is totally unpredictable.

We prefer to take pictures at dawn and dusk, because at those times, the light enhances every element of the scene. The colors are more vivid, the contrast is stronger, and the details are clearer. We can capture every detail of a bird’s plumage or an animal’s fur. We can also create beautiful patterns of light around the elements in our pictures. When we use artificial light for underwater photography, we use special techniques that combine natural and artificial light to create the best possible photograph.

In color photography, perseverance and patience are major assets of nature photographers. It is for this reason that we constantly return to the same places to create our photos. We are never tired of the show.
