Microsoft created a lightshow to detain the hero image for the Windows 10 desktop background. The firm has ambitious plans to get the Windows 10 platform on one billion devices in a few years of its commercial release. The image of the Windows logo captured with glass, smoke and lasers will be one of the most visible photographs.
Before this latest photograph, the Bliss theme on the Windows XP is the most iconic desktop photo and it depicts a grassy hill set alongside blue skies and white clouds. The Windows 10 background was shot be Bradley Munkowitz, a photographer in a studio located inSan Francisco,California. He is known for his work on Oblivion and the Tron futuristic movie.
The photographer wanted to create a glass portal to depict the light shining through the Windows logo. The resulting image goes well with the darker theme of Windows 10, but it will not be animated as it is seen in the video released by Microsoft.
