13 INSPIRING PHOTOGRAPHS WITH THE LIGHT AS «PROTAGONIST»

Light is essential for our photos. Light is what allows us to capture photographs of objects, landscapes or people. Without light, the framing would be completely dark and the photograph too. From there your creativity as a photographer has no limits, there are endless techniques that you can apply to achieve different effects on your subjects, all based on the use of light.

But today’s topic is a bit different. Today I bring you 13 examples of very inspiring photographs, where light is not an auxiliary element, but the main element. They are photos where light has been used, not only to highlight the beauty of a subject or the prominence of a person. In these 13 examples the protagonist is the light itself.

Look at them and consider some as a personal challenge. At the bottom of the gallery I leave some blog articles where we explain how to get some of these effects.
