From mathematician and businessman to photographer and blogger
It is known that for many centuries, world artists have used the principle of the "golden section" to build harmonious compositions. And in photography, it is an important compositional rule. Many photographers are forced to learn this principle to be able to find the most active nodes of attention and correctly place the main objects. Equipped with a professional camera, David does not just picture the composition. He has his own opinion on nature and objects surrounding us. Thanks to combinatorial thinking, David Kaplan intuitively sets all the accents in the frame, draws with light, capturing the essence. He is a talented photographer who knows how to see what is hidden from the eyes of an ordinary observer. David’s camera lens has moments that make you stop and think, take a fresh look at the already famous architectural monuments and familiar landscapes.
According to Russian businessman David Kaplan, the correct photo reveals problems and exacerbates feelings, strengths, and weaknesses.
Personal photo collection
The David Kaplan photo archive can be divided into several thematic sections.
Ballet. David Kaplan devoted a large cycle of photographs to ballet. The author shows us, graceful ballerinas against the backdrop of urban landscapes, revealing art from a new perspective. In the pictures, we see sophisticated girls in air ballet tutus in the interiors of massive buildings under construction or being restored. Each photo shows us how opposites can balance each other and be in harmonious unity.
Israel. The works of the so-called Israeli cycle absorbed the energy of Israel, the great history and traditions of the Jewish people, demonstrating the unconditional love and reverence of the photographer for this country.

Photographs from David Kaplan's travels
Nature for Kaplan is a world of revelation; dazzling, unrealistically vivid, and vibrant. David Kaplan felt his connection with nature precisely through photography. The right choice of time of the day and focus on natural light, the use of special shooting techniques, modern professional equipment, and a set of advanced image processing programs; all this together helped Kaplan develop his own, recognizable style of photography. Each shot is a reflection of his author's view of the uniqueness and beauty of the world. In his works, we will find images of picturesque waterfalls, red walls of canyons, high mountain peaks, mysterious deserts, the sun rising over the valley, a magical full moon night sky, and much more.
From one of his trips to Southeast Asia, David Kaplan, Russian businessman, brought a delightful shot of sakura blossoms in the Japanese city of Kyoto - an airy pink and white capture of real Japanese spring.
Another photograph, which depicts a Japanese maple tree in autumn, is filled with special calm and pacification. In the soft light of the rising sun, the majestic maple seems to rest against a cloudy morning sky with its powerful branches and a fluffy crown, and its roots are buried in the grass, rich and moist from the morning dew.
Another autumn series of photos is dedicated to Lake Como. I must say that Lake Como is a place of strength for the Russian businessman. Autumn is quiet, full of colors, calming. All nature merges. Amazing shots of golden landscapes creeping along rivers and lakes of dense fog, snow caps on the tops of massive mountains, a geyser lake, and the Lake Como. One of David's works resembles the impressionist painting - a reflection of the foliage of autumn trees on a flat and calm surface of the river. From his travels in Scotland, David Kaplan brings photos of ancient ruins and ancient
mysterious castles shrouded in mystical legends, the breathtaking and picturesque landscapes of Norway. These are photographs of the fantastic beauty of sunsets, dancing lights, turning into the northern lights, rocky shores of narrow, winding, and crashing into the land of the sea fjords.
The North Pole with its drifting perennial ice floes, arctic flowers, and rare polar animals appeared in Kaplan’s lens. A trip to the South Pole gave the photographer a unique opportunity to see with his own eyes and to capture a colony of emperor penguins.
Special attention deserves the photo of glaciers and icebergs, bathed in the light of the full moon. From the sight of a huge moon hanging over the kingdom of ice and snow makes a body covered in goosebumps.
This is only a small part of the work of travel photographer David Kaplan. According to his photo archives, you can go on a virtual journey through the most beautiful corners of our planet and study the features of nature and sights of different countries of the world.
