We exhibit the tensor, spinor and Newman-Penrose (NP) forms of Faraday tensor and the Maxwell equations. Our approach is based in real and null tetrads, which allows introduce in natural manner the NP and 2-spinor techniques to study arbitrary electromagnetic fields, with special emphasis in the relationship between quaternions and Lorentz transformations.
