This morning I had a lovely morning out with a new friend, David and his daughter. We went down to Frankston with the hope of doing some long exposures. Unfortunately there were no clouds and it was a little bit boring. We then headed to Mordialloc. The company was good, the sky was too clear.

It is a silly question really, because it all depends, well, on a lot of things. When I went to Tasmania I took the Infrared (IR) camera with me. I wasn’t sure I would use it a lot, but then I discovered that it was great for some subjects. Trees especially, even more so if they are dead. However, there were some other subjects that were a surprise to me.

One Photo Two Ways

It is the Monochrome Madness Challenge on my blog tomorrow morning and I thought I might have a look at how one image can be done one way and then in another.

I took this image last weekend in a park near where I live.  I really liked the tree, there is something about it. I have no idea what the tree is, not that it matters.  I took this image and then decided that I should play with it.  I wondered how it would look in black and white.


Now the image has a completely different feel to it.  I tried to imitate an infrared effect, it didn’t quite work, but I’m not too fussed.  It isn’t an infrared image, but I like the wintery feel it gives the image.  The original doesn’t really have that. It is a great thing to do, to try and do one image in different ways, see what you can get.  I had to do it when I was studying photography, see how many different ways you can do one image.  It is an interesting experiment.  Why don’t you try it. Monochrome Madness Week 16 will published tomorrow morning and when it is I will add a link to it here.

Monochrome Madness Week 16 has now been published.
