Playing with Infrared Images

You must have guessed that there would be more posts on this, especially as I learn more about what I’m doing. I’ve been doing more research and playing in Photoshop to see what I can do. Part of the reason I chose the filter for the sensor that I did, was that I was meant to be able to get some colour into the images. As it turns out, it hasn’t been as easy as I thought. I have spent all afternoon on the computer trying to see what I could find out.

I was in a park this morning trying out the infrared camera, so when I got home I played around with the images to see what I could do to them. I am having so much fun trying it out. I can’t wait to take it to Tasmania with me.

Here are three images for you to see.

  1. I used to think of IR for shooting b&w, but these are excellent. Especially love the top one, Leanne!

  2. Very interesting, Leanne. But I don’t know if this genre is near as good as your normal work. But like keep at it. Always fun to try new things.

    • I guess time will tell, I still have a lot to learn and have a lot of experimenting to do, so I guess time will tell. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens. Thank you Don.

  3. What is the name of the camera you are using?

  4. These are stunning. I bet you can sell these.

    Beautifully done, Leanne! I haven’t tried the filters in 2017 version yet. Which filter is this one?

  6. Hi, Leanne. Interesting to watch your progress on this. Of this set, I think I like the pure B&W version (“old tree” horizontal format) the best. Looking forward to seeing more.

    • Thank you Robin, it is really interesting, I’m loving experimenting to see what I can do with it, I don’t know that it will become my main focus, but right now, it is something new.

  7. I really love these and it adds another dimension to your already slow shutter work. In the IGPOTY competition the other year, a winner was a female photographer who did a portfolio on trees in infrared. It really brought out the characters of the trees and their textures and structure. She also used a special processing paper – all very technical but lovely finish. Its an aspect I am interested in looking at for floral photo work.

    • Thank you Judy, I’m happy to hear that. I think so too, can’t wait to explore more. Do you remember who the woman was? It all sounds very interesting, I hadn’t thought of printing, good point. I have been trying to do some macro with it, but it doesn’t work, because nothing really stands out, unfortunately.
