The Ansel Adams mention reminds me of some black and white photos I took relatively recently on vacation in Colorado, I can't remember if I posted these then. They're once again using just my iPhone, with the Noir filter on.





Years ago I was doing a lot of photography of water using a very high frame rate to capture detail, using my Nikon 3200D. I always liked this one, it's a picture of a glass of water from above while I'm stomping my foot on my deck, and the glass it resting on a metal rack:



One day I found a tiny waterfall (like 8 inches high) in a creek and got up close and photographed the splashing from it:



And here is a thing I was doing where I was placing a glass bowl full of water on top of some of my art that I had painted on wood blocks, and tapping the water with a straw and photographing the art through the water:

My favourite though I really like 'em all but this one really smacks you in the face like a brick & gives me a "feeling" I always look for.
Hanzawa Yusuke has said to me several times photography is about "feeling" first before you actually LOOK at the photo & his right, his where he is because he knows what his on about =D

Thanks man. :) Likewise, I really like your style. I don't have a page or anything, no. I have mostly just posted here. I have a ton of other pictures using various filters from that same Colorado vacation that I still just have on my phone, when I get some time I'll try to pick some good ones.

I used to paint and sell my work, during that time I got a Nikon 3200D to take print photos of my pieces but then I started getting into photography too. I made prints of some of my better photos. I've since moved to focusing on my music so I don't photograph as much but I do love it.

Beautiful. How do you get the light so bright in some of your photos (like the one 2 posts ago)? Long exposure time?

I want to make it 100% clear I DON'T support anything Antifa linked, I find them as foul as any far-right group.

We don't care about politics in LAVA, so no worries. Who ever you are, thank you for bringing some class to LAVA with your photography :)

What part of the US was the antifa squat shot taken around?

Thanks for the kind words, I got some hassle on my Facebook page for page for posting that which is why I said the above.

UK (England) at the 2nd city called Birmingham.
