Photograph Location: Halong Bay | Vietnam

Photographer: Sanjoy Sengupta (Muscat, Oman) Registered Photographer
Starting from a hotshot point and shoot camera in late 80s to a Nikon FM10 film camera in late 90s, Sanjoy Sengupta used to get 32 out of 36 exposure wrong to a day of digital cameras like canon Powershot A520 and a decent hybrid version canon SX20IS, which were with him wherever he went to capture some beautiful moments, moments of life which would be cherished forever. Then when he finally could not resist the alluring pricy Nikon DSLR, his actual learning started from that moment.

After spending the night shooting around the Salton Sea and surrounding area, I went looking for a pair of old and dented silos I had seen on a previous trip to the area. Turns out those had been demolished, which disappointed me, but I came across this scene and was stopped in my tracks- no pun intended, really. It was the last shot of the night and I couldn’t think of a more fitting way to end the night of shooting. Full moon, train tracks headed off into the distance and touching at the horizon with just enough cloud movement to make the long exposure that much more interesting.

Award Winner: Photo of the Day | August 27
Award Score: 66.5 (Value 12, Clarity 12, Composition 18, Style 12.5, Skill 12)
Photo of the Day Award Category: Night Photography
Photograph Location: Brawley, 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.

On the southeastern shore of California’s Salton Sea, you will find the Red Hill Marina and a set of three well photographed dead trees. I have shot these trees from various angles and times of day. This particular photograph was shot around 3:30am on the night of the recent Supermoon. The moon shadow being cast was amazing to see even to the naked eye and I knew I wanted to be in that shadow for a long exposure shot. I was very pleased with the resulting photograph and decided that converting to black and white was the correct way to go. Shortly after taking this photo, I was actually approached by a couple of Imperial County Sheriffs who were patrolling the area. They were curious what I was up to out taking pictures of trees in the middle of the night by myself. I had to explain the concept of long exposure photography to them and after showing them this photo they understood and said they liked it. I hope you do as well.

A couple of years ago she discovered this beautiful world of photography and it soon became a big part of her life. Every photograph that she takes has its own story and at least two meanings behind it – the one she sees herself, and the other from viewers perspective. She thinks that, “there is no better feeling than knowing that you can stop the time and capture a perfect moment that will stay with you forever.”

Photographer: Sanak Roy Choudhury (Muscat, Oman) Registered Photographer
Sanak Roy Choudhury works as an clinical optometrist and research assistant at a reputed eye hospital in Oman. He likes to travel around and invariably loves capturing any interesting situation under any given circumstances. Although he was never very serious about photography his interest gradually started to convert to a passion which resulted him to acquire a DSLR on sept 2012. His baby steps started since then and slowly and steadily he started to understand the domain of photography and managed to grow immense interest in the fascinating world of photography. Sanak loves to class himself as an amateur and always strives to attain perfection on whatever he captures.
Today he has achieved many small recognition’s and managed to win several photography contests but his desire to learn and explore more remains a hunger to be fulfilled. Sanak does regret today after exploring to this splendid domain for missing some vital opportunities in his yesteryear’s of travel.
