Sculpture by the Sea held at Bondi beach, is one of Sydney’s and in fact Australia’s most popular events being the largest annual sculpture exhibition in the world. Each year over 500,000 visitors from throughout Australia and the world view 100’s of sculptures by artists from all corners of the planet.
Sculptures by the sea is a free event that has been held since 1997 and it never fails to capture the imagination of Sydney for three weeks each spring. Amazingly unique sculptures with a stunning coastal Sydney backdrop makes for a great opportunity for any budding photographer to try their hands at capturing something totally unique and as their photographic juices and imaginations run wild.
While the heavy crowd factor can make it a true challenge to capture clear shots of the fantastic sculptures a little bit of patience will pay dividends. Feel free to perusal the following images to see how I got on behind the lens during this fantastic event. It was a great opportunity to give my new camera setup a good test run by shooting something different to surfing to see what it is truly capable of. I was hoping for a stunning sunset as a backdrop to really add so colour and pop to the images, it didn’t quite happen but I am still happy with the images I managed to capture. Let me know what you think.
