The Swell Sculpture Festival at Currumbin Beach began in 2003 however I only discovered this Festival in 2011 and was delighted and amazed at the sculptures, the artists are just so talented and each year it is a must see event on my calendar.
The festival is held on both the beach and broadwalk area of Currumbin during September each year and from a photography point of view each piece can be very challenging to capture with the combination of the elements and amount of people around.
Even knowing this upfront I still wanted to challenge myself this year photographically, to look at the sculptures from all angles and aspects and find the best way to showcase each sculpture using natural light.
I headed down last Saturday morning around 7.30 thinking that the sun would be in a good position and not too bright or encompassing, I was wrong. However I was pleased to discover that I could still create some magic shots with the elements I had to work with.
Here are some more of my favourite photos from this year.
Lastly to finish out this weeks blog my personal favourite was the Blue surfing girl on the Beach. Here is one of the many angles I photographed her this day.
Until next week.
