Thanks to everyone who connected to the broadcast, and have sent us such rave reviews! Let me give you a few:

Andrey Krivoshein: A positive moment of what is happening in the world – more virtual meetings that we need, the opportunity to hear something new, to see each other at least on the network and chat! Viktor, thank you for carrying away yourself and us!

Sergey Sheremet: Viktor, thank you, it was interesting to listen about the NG routine and the competition among authors. I caught myself thinking that I personally know almost all speleo photographers who shoot for NG, they are on the fingers of one hand. I also noticed that people came to listen about photography and asked questions about caves, you fascinated them so!

Nikon Ambassador Viktor Lyagushkin Starring in the Nikon Glasses Advertisement

Viktor Lyagushkin came up recently in an absolutely new role – as a main actor of Nikon Glasses Advertisement.

The main idea of the clip is perfectionism in any manifestation of life. As for me, the word “perfectionism” has some negative connotation, but it means a wish (and efforts) to achieve an ideal result despite of all.And this describes Viktor very well.

In the clip, Viktor learns to create an ikebana with Master Sletlana Zamriy. Viktor founded parallels of an ancient Japanese art and one of the main principles of photography: mastery of “decisive moment” formulated by prominent classic of photography Henri Cartier-Bresson and demonstrated how it works.

It was very interesting to observe an interaction of the two masters. They understood each other  perfectly, and it seems they both was very glad with their association.

Ah, yes. A couple of words about Nikon glasses. Viktor is so delighted with them that he is ready to look dreams with them but he still should take them off for the night.
