Light is a fun part of photography, but often isn't necessarily the subject. Even in B&W photography, where the importance of lighting is stressed, the light itself still is not usually the subject. Here are some photographs, usually colour photographs, that have light as the primary subject.
Lens flare through awning The sun flares through a house awning. The blue sky is visible in the top third of the photograph, with whispy clouds. The house, and the trees behind it, are only silhouettes. The sun flare dominates the scene.
Blue and orange lens flare A blurry scene of trees and some unrecognisable structure is overwhelmed by lens flare from the sun. A strange blue and orange streak eminates down from the sun, and classic lens flare circles are seen in the bottom left of the photograph, opposite the sun in the top right.
Strange shape of light Three points of light (or four, maybe five or six, the number is mysterious and difficult to determine) hover in pitch black darkness, centered in the frame. Small flaring comes from the brightest point. Other points look like lit-up crumpled plastic.
Headlights, unstable Headlines blur from oncoming traffic, visible through the windscreen of a car. A sense of speed and discomfort exists, caused by shaky and unstable light lines.
Painting with the light from a window Light from a window bounces across the frame, composed of multiple exposures.
Loose figures painted with light Light from a window overlayed via multiple exposures to form a loose and soft abstract figure.
Light illuminates the grain of a window Light pouring through an airplane window, refracting against all the minature scratches and pits on the window. Blues and oranges dominate the frame, but soft white is around as well.
Circle of rainy green light A near perfect circle of green light is speckled with pleasantly regular dots of rain and distortion.
