Today, Nikon Ambassador Viktor Lyagushkin spent a one-hour stream on the official Instagram channel of Nikon @nikonrussia and answered readers’ questions about projects, photographic equipment, inspiration and much more.
The best stream quote: “The better the extreme photographer, the less extreme situations he has.“
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.

This is Tver Quarry near the city of Tver, Russia.
The Nikon company is working on educational spot with Viktor and they needed some underwater scene. The closest site with water transparent enough was Tver Quarry.
Viktor had found this was a great opportunity to test his new Nikon D4s in his new Subal housing
and asked freediver Igor Azhykin to come over and be his model.
Now you see the result.
The Team just came back from the Boot Show 2015 in Dusseldorf. The Show was stunning; there were a lot of interesting meetings. We were really happy to meet Todd Essick, David Pilosof and Rico Bessederich.
And the most important thing for us was time with the Subal company. As you know recently Viktor changed for Nikon D4S and Subal kindly agreed to sponsor us with the housing for his new camera.
It’s black and cool. Nothing could be better. We are happy!
Thank you, Harald Karl and all the Subal team!
