Watch Tales by Light!

I have just finished watching Tales by Light. I must say it was really cool, and very inspirational. There are few films on photography, and even less worth watching. Tales by Light was done by Netflix and Canon Australia. It follows renowned photographers around the world as they chase the shot of their dreams. Its very travel and adventure related, and that makes it very interesting for me. If you like travel photography, culture, adventure and nature, this is a must! The episodes are around 20-25mins each, but are quite feature packed. Watch the trailer below.

It is obviously sponsored heavily by Canon, and there isn’t another camera brand in sight throughout the series. It does not ruin the series, and should be something for Canon fanboys to watch late at night. What I really like about it is the international feel, and the focus on inspiration and the fundamentals of how photography makes us feel. I’m glad there is little gear talk by some “experts” because they usually makes me sick. These photographers are just practicing their craft, and are all very talented and inspirational.

I would highly recommend the series to all photographers. Its not only eye candy, and beautifully made, it was very thought provoking for me, and struck at the roots of what I love about travel and photography. This series is about what photography is, and not what consumerism has made it.
