Shape of Light and Shadows

What is light? Light exists in tiny packets called photons, it shows properties of both waves and particles. The study of light is optics and is an important research area of modern physics. Light is electromagnetic wave radiation. From the light that we can see, as colours, to higher frequency waves e.g. microwave, ultra-violet, x-rays, and gamma rays.

I am interested in seeing the working of my camera and lens pushed to extremes, seeing their idiosyncrasies, trying its own formalism as it struggles with refraction, diffraction and moirĂ© effects. I am encountering these effects in my camera and also trying to get my head around the science of light. But all I am really looking for is the ‘Poetry of Light’.
