Desperate times call for desperate measures. I've still got my old M8. Its excess IR sensitivity ought to make it a good IR camera. Accordingly, today I ordered an R72 IR filter and a couple of step-up rings. I might as well try something new while “The Plague“ has curtailed my musical...
Further exploration of processing. Zoner Photo Studio does not alter the colour balance of RAW files like Lightroom does. Channel mix gives a more workable result for faux (false) colour. Left as RGB with no mono conversion.
Looking for inspiration and liking a shell image posted recently I tried this one. It is still IR but a few things are different. 1.) I shot in RAW; 2.) I did the channel mix in Zoner Photo Studio Pro as I don't like how LR and PS change the image; and 3.) I did the mono conversion in Perfect...
This is a 4 shot vertical pano in IR. Red and blue channels swapped in PS and then further developed in Silver Efex. The PP has introduced some posterisation in the sky. The other thing of note is the shot was taken into the sun and a lot of foliage was in shadow. The foliage is less white...
A three shot pano of my (untidy) desk. Taken in IR and channel swapped in PS. Also adjusted exposures to match as flash was used.
Stitched in Autopano Pro and final tweaks in LR using grad filters to better blend exposure.
All wood surfaces are Jarrah which is a deep red/burgundy.
The Golden Shower tree I've been revisiting for the SiJ has a lot of new growth so I took a fresh photo in IR.
Converted in PS and local contrast enhanced in Perfect Effects 8 to modify the pale foliage.
Haven't picked up the camera for a few days. An unflattering selfie shot in IR and processed to give a grungy look.
Reflects my recent mood and the slack facial muscles of a person with Parkinsons.
Mood is on the way up again. :)
This is a long exposure (night) shot. This was the least noisy of several I shot and was a 10 sec exposure at F2.0.
I set the camera up before sundown and could have done better with the framing as I was shooting blind tonight at 10:30 pm.
This is a long exposure night shot. After trying a few exposures this result, 10 sec at F2.0, was the best.
Lighting was incandescent inside - no flash used. I was not sure if there would be enough IR to give an image.
Interesting is the narrow patch of garden outside lit by a mix of...
A couple of members have posted book-shelf images so I thought I'd try using infrared.
First shots using built-in flash were disappointing so went for window light and used a tripod (1/8 sec at F2.5).
Books with a lot of red in the cover are overexposed and have little detail.
Tried something different - this is a 3 shot bracket developed in HDR Efex Pro and then Silver Efex Pro to give a high key glow.
The initial scene has bright and dark areas and the +2, 0, -2 brackets were set in camera. I also shot in RAW, I have been using jpgs in days 1 to 10.
I mentioned revisiting this tree on Day One and this is the first new leaves and bud. R and B channels inverted in PS and local contrast boosted with ALCE.
The brighter new leaves is, I suspect, due to less IR absorption as a protective measure.
