It was a photography competition but it didn¹t feel like it. During an interview with Jaymee she asked me if photographers were competitive and I said: Of course, I thought about this later and realized that we are but most with ourselves. I saw the same drive in the other photographers. The challenges were fun but I found after an hour or two of photography I had to stop, download my photos and review what I had taken. One day I even had a short sleep before getting back in the mood to take photographs! I think the whole Club Med experience was getting to me. I wanted to relax like everyone else at the club!!! I did find it a challenge to shoot and post process in one day as I would normally remove myself emotional from the photos for a couple of days before post processing. I think this helps me to be more objective with what to keep and how I process the final images. I heard the same from other photographers. It really was a challenge! I was happy with my photos most days. I got a little carried away with Lightroom on the final day but that happens sometimes! I learnt so much from the other photographers. I loved the way we shared our gear and ideas with each other. Club Med Bali was beautiful with its lust green grass, palm trees and beach front location. The food was something else! So much food and so many dishes to chose from! I loved the food!
Bali was wonderful. I found everyone so friendly and relaxed. I loved the coastal temples, the beaches and the mountains. It really is paradise.The organizers of the competition, the Club Med staff and the photographers were all a fantastic bunch of people. Hopefully I will cross paths again with them all one day. Now all I want to do is go and have a holiday at Club Med Bali ! John
Eyeka has just launched a VIDEO and ANIMATION competition geared towards HIV education!The Anti-HIVirus Campaign, supported by Standard Chartered Bank, focuses on education as a way of reducing the number of new HIV infections. There is no cure or vaccine for HIV, so we must stop people getting infected in order to tackle the virus. Giving people the facts about HIV and AIDS enables them to make safe lifestyle choices, and also dispels the myths that drive stigma! There will be first, second and third prize winners, slated to receive USD5,000, USD3,000 and USD2,000 respectively. Find out more about the campaign by visiting http://en.eyeka.com/partner/antihivirus! Entry submission closes on 13th October 2009. Start creating your videos/animation today!
