Welcome To Canvas of Light!


Welcome dear readers to my humble photoblog: Canvas of Light.

After hesitating for a while, I finally decided to take that step and jump into the world of blogging to share my passion of photography with everyone.

Although I already post my photos on numerous photo-community sites, I felt like I wanted a more personal blog where I can also relate the stories and ideas behind each of my photos as well as some tips I have discovered during my journey in the photographic adventure. I find it always interesting to have a glimpse of what is happening inside of a photographer's head.

I guess I have to tell a bit about myself, I am Daniel, a French-Armenian 30 year old guy with a boring day job in a boring office. I had a passion for Arts since my childhood.

My main interest at first was drawing.. I loved to draw, and kept on drawing for the past 25 years.

One day while camping, I envied one of my friends who had bought a brand new DSLR camera, snapping amazing photos. Less than a month later, in November 2007, I purchased a DSLR too (Canon 400D)… And that's when a new passion was born.

I am a complete self taught amateur. Everything I learned I did it alone, with a lot of practice (I used to take my camera EVERYWHERE!), a lot of reading, a lot of experimenting and of course, browsing the net to get some ideas and inspiration.

I intend to quit my job in 2009 to jump into the world of freelance photography and finally follow my dreams.

Why Canvas of Light you say? Because as a photographer, I use the available Light and my camera as tools to "paint" my photos like an artist in front of his canvas. My intention is always to tell a story, trigger an emotion through my photos. A photo should not be only "beautiful" or "perfectly done"… it should trigger something within the viewer.

And that is what I hope I will be able to do.

I will be posting some of my oldest photos as well as new ones. You would be able to follow the evolution and improvement through time. For each of them I will relate the story behind it, the technical details and my own view on it. I will do my best to keep the blog updated frequently (preferably once a day).

Feel free to ask any questions, I will be happy to answer them.

I thank you in advance for your interest.

Alright then… Let the journey start!

And may there always be Light!
