Description This photograph is of a sunrise over Bora Bora's lagoon. The sun is rising directly over a motu with some overwater bungalows nearby. The water is perfectly still and reflects the couple of clouds beautifully.
Benjamin Clark Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement Photography is something that has grown on me through every picture I have taken. The first time I remember going out of my way to get a good shot was on a cruise in the bahamas with my high school choir. We were busy every night at sunset, so I made the effort to get up in time to capture the sun rising (a sight that I had only seen once or twice in my life to that point). The shot turned out beautiful and is one of the best memories I have of the whole trip.
Since then, my skills and knowledge about photography have grown. Though I've never taken a full blown class about photography, I've spent countless hours studying the technical side of things through books. Besides, I believe that the art is learned through experience.
Today I find great enjoyment in my photography as each new shot brings a new experience.
