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.
Desert Point, Lombok
A story about an amazing morning ride in a Indonesian fishing boat along the Lombok coastline to get to Desert Point surf spot, and what I saw on the way. Also, how photographing affects me and what motivates me to travel to different places.
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.
I visited The Blanco Museum here in Ubud, Bali and found it to be most inspiring. Like I usually do when looking at paintings since that’s where I learned the most about photography.
A short appreciation post to the most photogenic subject there is, water! And of course, big thanks to all surfers who help me make the photos more interesting.
It was a beautiful morning
What I did this morning. Yes, went out and took some surf photos. Amazing waves. Some thoughts about how I function while taking pictures.
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.
