For doing bird photography I always visit Baikka Beel, an wetland in the eastern part of Hail Haor, which is not that far from Sreemangal, Moulvibazar. It is one the largest wildlife sanctuaries in Bangladesh for migratory and resident birds and fish. While taking a journey by boat into this wetland one can see thousands of fish swimming in its clear water, the beautiful water lilies, and the reflection of the sky on it.

Award Winner: Photo of the Day | March 02
Award Score: 60 (Value 12, Clarity 12, Composition 14, Style 11, Skill 11)
Photo of the Day Award Category: Black & White Photography
Photograph Location: Baikka Beel, Srimongol, Moulvibazar, Sylhet | Bangladesh

Photographer: Saniar Rahman Rahul (Dhaka, Bangladesh) Registered Photographer
Saniar Rahman Rahul was the first winner for ‘Photo of the Month Award’ in June 2010. He was fascinated by seeing his father taking pictures with a camera while his family was in Iraq during his childhood. Later in life, in 1997, while he became very much attached with his profession of ‘graphic design’, Rahul rediscovered the creative side of photography. He started his career as a professional graphic designer in October of 1995, in a pre-press house called Color Scan, which is one of the pioneers in the pre-process printing media in Bangladesh. Afterwards, he moved to Power Point, another pre-press house. Before he finally settled into advertising, he also worked in an IT company called Abtab IT. Moving to advertising from printing media was a big step for him. In 2005, he joined G3, a special wing of Gray Worldwide. Two years later, he moved to Paper Rhyme. Now he is working as the Art Director of Grey World Wide, one of the ten largest advertising agencies in the world.

Award Winner: Photo of the Day | February 28
Award Score: 58 (Value 11, Clarity 11, Composition 13, Style 12, Skill 11)
Photo of the Day Award Category: Black & White Photography
Photograph Location: Seattle,Washington | The United States

Photographer: Ronnie Glover (Gig Harbor, WA, USA) Registered Photographer
Photography took a backseat while Ronnie obtained his college degree. After graduation, he purchased his first camera but was unable to produce the images that he saw in his mind. He then took a few continuing education classes to learn the technical aspects of the camera and realized there was so much more to learn about photography. So Ronnie enrolled in the professional program at Southeastern Center for the Arts in Atlanta. The school was operated by Jeanne & Neil Chaput de Saintonge, who currently operate Rocky Mountain School of Photography. He spent 14 years living in Alaska and this gave him unbelievable opportunities to experience nature and capture many images. Ronnie also enjoys sports and travel photography and the experience of different cultures. It is his wish that his images will expose others to the beauty of nature, the inspiration of physical pursuits, and other cultures and promote a greater understanding of each. Most recently, he has ventured into the exploding mobile photography realm using his iPhone to document running and sporting events. He invites everyone to enjoy his gallery and feel free to contact him with any comments.

I was driving home from work and the sun was almost disappearing in the horizon, when I saw this path at the side of the main street. I stopped the car and set up my tripod trying to frame the scene before the clouds in the sky completely disappeared. I like the contrast between the dark grasses around the bright path that leads the eye of the viewer through the unknown.

He attended various photography workshop and post-processing courses that made him developed a particular workflow from the raw capture to the final image.

He won the photography competition contest of “Passione Italia” in 2011 with the photo “Quando la città dorme” that was used as a cover image for the White Pages of the Bergamo area. He tries to share his love for photography and visual art through his images, knowing that the beauty may be found just across the street corner.

It was February; the winter was going to finish shortly in Hakaluki Haor, the largest marsh wetland resource in Bangladesh. These three fishermen were walking towards the water, where they would do finishing. For birds it’s one of the safest zones, but for people it’s a place of straggle. Bordering with Assam, India, this area stays underwater all over the year, only during the winter some of the lands become visible. Here almost everyone is fisherman.

This is an image of the playing field of the American game of football. It is my favorite sport. The goals are located 100 yards apart. Being inside your own 10 is not ideal as the team must work to cover over 90 yards to score. It requires persistence, determination and lack of critical errors to accomplish the task. It is a “back against the wall” situation.

He now uses a Canon 5D Mark II. His goals are to continually work on his skill and composition. He is not a natural artist, as he has to think about the shots.
