We love catching up with our photographers here at CoinaPhoto. This is the first in a series of posts in getting to know our Photo of the Day winners just a little bit better.
Photo name: Dadaepo Sun
User’s name: Ecko Budi Purwanto
Where were you when you took the photo?
I took it on a pier in Dadaepo Beach in Busan, South Korea. I used a couple of filters, like UV, Graduated ND and yellow filter on my Canon EOS kiss X3 and a simple retouched with Photoshop cs6.
What inspired you to take the photo?
I am very interested in capturing sunset and sunrise photos. I love landscape photography. I took this picture because Dadaepo has a beautiful seashore. That place makes us feel peaceful.
What do you love about CoinaPhoto?
I love CoinaPhoto because we can share our photos and make friends from all over the world, and I can hopefully also earn some money from it. It’s also a great source of inspiration, you can see what photography trends are popular in other countries.
My name is Eko Budi Purwanto, my friends usually call me Eko and I’m an amateur photographer. I bought my first camera on October 2009. It was a Canon EOS kiss X3. I’ve been to a coupe of photography workshops in Indonesia but I’ve predominantly taught myself. My preference is to landscape photographs, as there are so many beautiful places and examples of stunning architecture here in Korea. I usually use my free time, particularly when on holiday, to explore beautiful spots worth capturing wherever I am.
