Yesterday morning I had to meet a friend in the city so we could do our subscription for Melbourne Theatre Company next year, and I figured, if I’m going in I may as well take the infrared camera with me to try out.
I know it works really well on plants, and does an amazing job with landscapes, but the test for me was architecture. What would happen to the buildings. I have to admit I really thought it would probably be all black or something, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The images end up looking like normal, well almost, black and white images. The camera does give a sepia tone, so I had to change them to black and white. It does open up possibilities I think and gives me more to think about.
There is something about them. They aren’t the same as your usual black and white, but I like the feeling of age or something that the images get.
Here is a selection of the ones I took yesterday around the city. I got off the train at Melbourne Central and wandered down through the lanes, streets and arcades to Sumner House, the home of Melbourne Theatre Company.
