For the Best of series for the month of July, we here at Imikimi.com thought that we would showcase some beautiful imagery from NationalGeorgraphic.com. Using the theme of light and water, these images not only visually exhibit a beautiful digital contrast the water and light, but they also provide some great ideas for digital art projects that anyone can do….
This photo first caught our eye because it sort of reminds you of a storm around a beautiful lake maybe on the evening of fourth of July. What does it remind you of? A led light was used in this photograph to define the direction of the waves.
Red Shift Photograph by: Joel James Devlin
“The camera and film allowed me to extend my exposure time an hour or longer, though 40 minutes was often about right with the camera settings I needed.” Joel James Devlin
The photographer for this photo used a Mamiya 7, a medium-format rangefinder camera. This image can remind you of a humid July evening while taking a walk in your local park, trail or favorite wooded spot.

The light reflecting off of the water in what seems like an endless tunnel is not intriguing but brilliant photography done by National Geographic’s own Gordon Gahan.
Gentle Stream Photograph by: Joel James Devlin

The photographer used a small LED light floating on the stream to create this beautiful, peaceful as well as calming image.
“The speed of the light is quite important, so a gentle stream is ideal. If it was too still the light would just stay in one place and blow out [in the photo],” he said.
It is amazing how light can take an image to a whole other level. Whether using led light, other lighting or even altering an image using your favorite image editor, use the this months pics as an inspiration to explore the beauty of light outdoors. See what effects you can create.
