The Light of Rembrandt

Needless to say, I, like many, am charmed by the lights of Rembrandt in his adorable and endearing paintings. The colors of his paintings also enchant me.

It is also unnecessary to say that Rembrandt’s lights and colors are endless and inexhaustible sources of inspiration in the color photography of portraits.

I do not do portraits in studios. Therefore, I search incessantly for the portraits I do for Rembrandt’s natural light. In the street portraiture, this search is difficult and finding the conditions of light, even if approximately adequate to a good portrait, is almost insane.

But in the meantime one goes on living and learning in the art of photography with the great masters of painting.

I'm an amateur photographer based in the city of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil. I used to make photographs since I was about 15-17 years old. My first camera was a Olympus Trip, an analogue camera. Many years after that I switched to several digital cameras. Presently I own a Nikon D500 with a small set of lenses and a Fujifilm X100T 23mm. A few years after my retirement as an university professor, after teaching Environmental Chemistry at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) for 45 years, I decided to invest money and time dedicating myself more seriously to photography. I´ve taken on-line courses as well as I´ve participated to various photography festival across Brazil. By far, my biggest interest is street photography. And in it, I'm interested in portraits, everyday street scenes and architecture.
