Photography on Netflix: Tales by Light

Take six photographers, and plunk each them in some of the world’s most beautiful locations and let them do their thing and what do you get?  Tales by Light, that's what!  That and a whole bunch of extremely jealous viewers.

Part photography, part travel show, Tales by Light is a six part series, each of which focuses on an individual photographer and their chosen area of photography.  Episode one kicks off with under water photographer Darren Jew as he attempts to tackle photographing mating humpback whales in Tonga.  Episode two focuses on travel photographer Richard I'Anson where (amongst others) he captures some amazing images of the colour Festival of Holi (Festival of Colour) in India.

The travel/photography format works well.  At times the visuals in this six-part series are truly gorgeous, although there can be lack of detail when it comes to the photographic process and how some of the photographers achieve what they do.  That being said, if Tales by Light does not inspire photographers to pick up their gear and get out and shoot I doubt anything will.
