So my on going project last year was to photograph 100 sunrises, and I happy say I completed the challenge.

There were a lot of early starts (well 100 actually) and struggles to find new locations but looking back it was the best decision, I had a lot of fun doing this project, I shot a few nice images, and I ticked off a lot of locations that have been on my radar for a long time.

Please check out all the images over at 100sunrises.com

Time for some sleep ins and maybe a few sunset shoots

Cheers,

Ben

Silver at the NSW AIPP Awards

I was honored to receive 3 Silver awards at the Epson NSW Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) awards this year.

The AIPP awards are one of the only photography competitions where you must submit a print, and all judging is based on the print itself not on a digital image viewed on a monitor.

This means the final product you are producing is judged on colour balance, sharpness, overall image impact/message, print quality, everything that a customer would see when viewing a print. If a photographer slips up on any of these areas being judged it affects their final score.

So as well as producing an image that will impress the judging panel there are the added factors of print quality and production to stress over.

These awards are really worthwhile, they push me get the best possible image and print I can and to receive the recognition of 3 Silver awards is amazing.

 

These are my awarded images.

Culburra Beach July 2011


Spent the weekend at Culburra Beach, man it was cold, not to mention WINDY. It was a huge effort to get myself out of the warmth to take photos in the mornings and at night, but definitly worth it.

Culburra Beach sunrises


These photos were taken in virtually the same spot on Culburra beach (NSW, Australia) at sunrise nearly a year apart.

The first 2 photos were taken in January and the 3rd was taken in October. The purple cast to the 3rd photo is from the cokin filters i was stacking in front of the lens, usually this colour cast is removed but i quite like it in this photo as the sky already had a bruised look to it on that morning from a passing storm.
