Liquid Serenity by Inebriantia Liquid Serenity by Inebriantia
Liquid Serenity


Shot on one of my favorite places in Alvor, with one of the best skies I've seen in this place, with that exquisite and captivating cloud formation. One of the first places where I've tried my ND non-grad hitech filters, and I just loved it. Much easier to use than the cumbersome screw on hoya nd400, even though the hitechs create a stronger magenta cast than the nd400.


I used a soft 2 stop ND grad filter for the sky, and then a square hitech ND 4 stop filter.

30 second exposure, f8.0, ISO 100, tripod and remote shutter release.

Raw conversion with fill light, highlight, blacks, clarity and vibrance adjustment, and then slight colour balance adjustment in photoshop and final sharpening.

Me encantan todas tus fotos de paisajes, todas tienen algo especial, como haces que el cielo quede 'movido' y que los colores sean tan intensos?
Muchas gracias!

Hola!

Voy a intentar responder-te con mi portu-espanhol! :-)

El cielo "movido" es una consequencia del uso de filtros ND Grad, que permiten hacer longas exposiciones. Los colores derivan de la luz natural, filtros y půs-edicion.

Gracias.

Amazing picture that leads to an amazing feeling. In the cold an dark embark, of life's many suprises. You sometimes realize that there can be no light without dark, no good without evil. Then you realize something; that completely whipes those silly notions off the block they belong to, and you find yourself remembering how precious and innocent life is and was when you were a child.
Oblivious to real things that make you feel good as a child, then compared to the many years you had the pleasure in growing up, within a world you still don't recognize because your eyes see more clearly now. You sit back and wonder/ponder and visualize all that reminds you of who you once were and now who you want to be. Within reach of things you never dreamed of touching or remembering. Thats when your heart speaks louder than your words. And you finally get it. All those years in school, all those trial and errors, all those tribulations means something special. Not the meaning of LIFE. But a life that means something to you. Photography defines moments related to this type of experiences and you suddenly realize what it is that life does and can provide. Moments (pictures) like this creates and everlasting courage. This is when we all realize just how precious we are.

It was so good being a child... I still am, deep within, masked by all the layers of adulthood, responsability and control... I try to preserve that side, for the sake of my mental health... today's society strives in killing creativity and imagination, and we are all a bit lost amidst this complex world of productivity and hectic jobs.

You got that right. When I was 15 I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and a year and half later I recieved a bonemarrow transplant. I was 15 years old at the time. Why am I saying this? It was at that moment, my childhood was taken from me. I never really got a chance to live a full adolescent
life. (don't worry I was cured) and at that moment of being given another chance at life, my life circled back around to catch back up to adulthood. But the impression it left behind had an everlasting affect. Although I am 28 years old now, according to hemotologist my life stunts for the next 10 years. So at about the age of 25 I just started all over. It it this kind of thing that makes me appreciate life more than I could ever do so before I had had cancer. Therefore leaving an everlasting reminder just how lucky I was. This is how I have identified true beauty within the power of life. It so ever changed me in a good way. The things I have taken for granted now stand in my portfolio of my life. Although I have not accomplished enough in life (according to my standards)
I am still just taking it all in one day at a time. Photography has an ever so strong hold, on my soul because I need to see the world that I almost never got a chance to see. To share experiences like this with people I have never met and are worlds apart is a pure privilege. Cause when it comes down to it we need eachother. It fills a void that tends to disinegrates character. It takes special moments like this to complete (maybe not a soul) but a day, and really when you think about it that is all the comfort we need. To wake up and realize just how precious we are. Beautiful pictures does that for me like music can for so many others. So I leave you with that sentiment and tell you one thing. I'll be watchin you cause you inspire me to keep trying. I start college for photography in May. I want to learn everything I can about it before I attempt to make it my profession. Your pictures will be remembered my friend. OHHH yeah you are right. Society now only uses images to discriminate. (not all) but most. It feels like a punch in the stomach and saddens our creativity. Do we still have the freedom in this country to be individuals with ideas? Can we live for the same reasons our parents did? Could we ever have the chance to better ourselves without persicution? I geuss we might never know. So now is the time to rekindle creativity and ignore the hand that fed you freely and just leave all bad memories in a prison that cannot hurt us, only encourage us.
