Monochrome Madness – First images taken in Infrared

I first got my infrared camera in 2017, well I had my old Nikon 300s converted to infrared. I wasn’t using the camera anymore and it seemed like a good idea. I don’t regret it and I love that I can get out with it.

Infrared does create quite a different landscape. It doesn’t work for everything, but there are definitely things that it does really well, like trees.

When I first got it I took it to Banyule Flats, which is a park not far from me. There is a swamp in it and lots of trees. It was my first time out there with the infrared camera, but I loved using it.

I have shown you photos from there before, but only one or two of the infrared, so today I have gone through the folder and picked out some more for you.

I haven’t used the camera for a while, but I think it might be time I started taking it out again when I go on trips to take photos, what do you think?

Participating in Monochrome Madness

If you would like to participate in this challenge please post photos on your blog and use the tag Monochrome-Madness, as then I can use the reader to see what you post. Also, use the tag mid-week monochrome to catch Bren’s as well.

I’m afraid I don’t use Social Media much anymore, but maybe tag it #monochromemadness for Instagram and I will try and look. That would be brilliant.

    1. I’m sorry, but I get asked this several times a week and if I followed everyone I wouldn’t have enough time to look at them. I follow people who I get to know.

  1. I have not dabbled with this style much. Thanks to your wonderful photographs, I will use it more often. I like to Lightroom to edit. Thank you for sharing this, along with your story.

  2. How specially rethought light subject if you are interested in, welcome on my blog:

    1. Anytime, and me too, I am a big fan of any image with reflections in it, used to take photos myself and that was a lot of what I photographed. I am reminded recently how much I miss it, thank you for the inspiration. 🙂

  3. These are all beautiful. The infrared makes the forests kind of surreal, almost like a haunted forest. So, have you found the actual infrared camera produces much different images than an infrared conversion?

    Oh, I did my first burn/dodge the other day since the old darkroom days, thanks to your post. Thank you, Leanne.

    1. Thank you Tim, I think the same, I love seeing it like this. Yes, I tried doing some infrared conversions, but they weren’t as good as what the camera does. Would highly recommend getting a camera converted.

      That is fantastic to hear Tim, I hope you got some great results and you are very very welcome.
