This is part of my ongoing series, “Power”, which is made of many different studies of the Geothermal Power Plants that can be found along the southeastern shore of the Salton Sea. There is plenty of volcanic activity in the area and I am fascinated by these power plants. This was shot on a day with great clouds that seemed to blend into the steam/smoke released from the plant, which I love seeing as a long exposure. To accomplish that, and darken the sky, I used a B+W 10 stop ND filter and a 15 sec exposure.

Award Score: 69.5 (Value 13, Clarity 13, Composition 18, Style 12.5, Skill 13)
Photo of the Day Award Category: Black & White Photography
Photograph Location: Calipatria, California | The United States

Photographer: Mickey Strider (Encinitas, CA, USA) Registered Photographer
Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Mickey Strider got his first taste of film making by taking first runner up honors at the Baltimore County Film Festival with a stop motion animation short, “The Coo Coo Conspiracy” in 6th Grade. He later studied art at the prestigious Maryland Institute College of Art and an advertising career soon followed. First working as Jr Art Director, Mickey then moved into film production where he worked as an Assistant Cameraman and Assistant Producer on commercials, music videos, films and television shows.
In 1989, Mickey made the jump to New York City as a Producer at ad agency Bozell. There he worked on productions for Chrysler, Merrill Lynch, A&P Supermarkets, Valvoline, FEMA and Tyco Toys among others. While working on the Tyco campaign for their smash toy hit, The Incredible Crash Dummies, Mickey gained a credit on the FOX TV Saturday Special featuring The Crash Dummies- becoming the very first TV special produced entirely using CGI.
A move south to Richmond, VA followed, where Mickey eventually started up his own commercial film production company with friend and long-time collaborator and DP, Frank DeMarco (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch”, “Rabbit Hole”, “Margin Call”, “BeerFest”). The directing duo, cleverly titled MICKEY+FRANK, helmed spots for agencies and clients from Atlanta to Charlotte to New York City. Mickey also worked on the HBO film “Iron Jawed Angels” starring Patrick Dempsey, Angelica Huston, Vera Farmiga and 2-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank. He also netted a brief cameo in the film opposite Ms. Swank. Mickey then contributed second unit camera-work on the 9/11 Documentary “Rebirth”, filming scenes in NYC on the One Year Anniversary. During this time Mickey also directed and produced the short film, “Zilch” with writer Brian Fox. The film went on to screen at over a dozen film festivals across the country including the Palm Springs International Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Newport Beach Film Festival, DC International Film Festival, Maryland Film Festival, RiverRun Film Festival and the Virginia Film Festival in Charlottesville, where Mickey and Brian also helped lead a panel on screenwriting. “Zilch” was also screened at the famous Anthology Film Archives in New York City and was awarded First-Runner Up at the James River Film Festival.
Winston-Salem, NC and advertising shop Mullen was the next career stop, where Mickey took over Head of Production duties and shepherded campaigns for Wachovia Bank, CSX Transportation, Sealy Mattresses, Marshall’s, LaQuinta Hotels and TJ Maxx, which garnered a Shortlist nod at Cannes. Mickey currently resides in San Diego, CA and as Director of Broadcast at ViTRO, he has produced TV and Web campaigns for Asics (Cannes Silver Lion 2012, One Show Bronze Pencil 2012, FWA Site of the Day 2012), Newcastle Brown Ale (Cannes Shortlist 2010, FWA Site of the Day, 2011 Webby Award), IHOP, Kwikset, Alaska Communications, PF Chang’s and Quickie/Lysol.
Mickey also continues his art and photography pursuits as well. In the past year his photographs have been selected for exhibitions across the country including the 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles, Linus Gallery in Pasadena, CA, Rockport Center for the Arts in Rockport, TX and has been included in two exhibitions at Maryland Federation of Art’s Circle Gallery in Annapolis, MD. He has also been featured in several online exhibitions, including Still Point Art Gallery and the Light
Space and Time Gallery where he was awarded Special Recognition. Mickey was a Finalist in the International Juried Printmaking and Photography Exhibition 2012 at Artspace in Richmond, VA and had three photographs and one sculpture as finalists in competition at the 2012 San Diego County Fair in Del Mar, CA. Mickey also had photographs selected and published in the Photographer’s Forum Magazine Best Of Photography 2011 Annual and also in the Best of Photography 2012 Annual. Mickey’s artwork has recently sold to buyers in New Jersey, Ohio, California and Japan.

With manual focusing, you lend yourself much more towards the serendipity, which to me is the wonderful joy of photography. Who do not enjoy the surprised gift? Take this as an example. Here is my favorite shot from the trip to Vietnam in 2012. I saw the boy jumping while walking along the beach in the morning. I was not sure if I got it until I saw the scan and smiled happily.

Award Score: 66 (Value 12, Clarity 12, Composition 18, Style 12, Skill 12)
Photo of the Day Award Category: Black & White Photography
Photograph Location: Nha Trang Beach, Vietnam

Photographer: Minh Nghia Le (Singapore) Registered Photographer
Minh Nghia Le and his wife Mai Phuong Duong are two Singapore-based photographers. Photography has nothing to do with their daily job but it has become their passion for years. His main interests currently are street photography and portraiture, which certainly have influences on his other work in travel and wedding photography. His favourite quote is: “Well, I don’t believe in photography as an art or a job or anything. I think of photography as a language and I think a language should be used to speak, to say what you have to say. So, the only things I have to say about my life and what I know about the world, is the way I see it.” – from Antoine d’Agata”

Tisha Clinkenbeard works have been in exhibits at The Fine Arts Center of Hot Springs, Black Box Gallery in Portland, and in several fine art shows in Texas.

Her goal is to share what she finds Round & About – which was the inspiration for her photo blog: foundroundandabout.com. Two of Tisha’s photos have been appeared in the Birds & Blooms monthly online newsletter – April and December of 2011.

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.

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.

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 left school at 17 to start his working life as a junior carpenter and after a while he decided to take a gap year in London. In the English capital he used to work in many different places while studying English in the London West Collage. Now he is living in Italy, close to Bergamo where he works for a rental car company.

Since he was a teenager he used to take pictures of everything he came across; the beauty of the lake and the marvelous places in the area of Verbano made him become a passionate photographer. He started using a film camera and learning dark room processing in black and white, and then finally moved to digital in 2009 when he bought his first Canon 50D. 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 loves taking picture of everything he likes, from landscapes to portraits and live music event. Some of his pictures were published in a prestigious Italian art magazine Overart. 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.
