Sony World Photography Awards
My view about entering photography awards, this time it was the Sony World Photography Awards. And is it really possible to compete in photography. Also, what does I as a photographer learn from entering photo contests.
I got nominated!
My contribution to International Photo Awards that got noticed and nominated. My thoughts, and some tips, about the nomination now that the contest is over, and I’ve let it all sink in that I was among the finalists.
I think I’ve figured it out
Reflections about my travels and photography during the pandemic. And if, and why, I might have PTSD and life in general. Also, photos to two photo exhibitions.
Things I take for granted
Maybe I have a bit of coming home blues or, I don’t know but I miss living close to the sea where I can take surf photos at Tanah Lot, which is one of Balis most famous temples.
The one that got away
Some photography advise, some photo editing confessions and an apology. And surf photos from a lovely April morning here in Bali, Indonesia.
“Blue lines are the reason why the temple had to shatter”
Finally when I got here, I understood the line “Blue lines are the reason why the temple had to shatter” from the Massive Attack song. Also, a description of how my brain works when I’m in photography-mode, and that water is just a gigantic reflecting mirror sometimes.
Batu Bolong, Bali, Indonesia 2022
Photos I took of people on the beach, and by the temple, in Batu Bolong, Bali, March 2022. And my thoughts of what differentiates a photograph from a snap. And also, some life advice from Philthy Taylor from Motörhead.
Back where it all started
A summary of how I started photographing surfing now when I’m back where it all began in Bali, Indonesia. Illustrated with surf photos from the other day here in Batu Bolong.
