Infrared at the Park


Blogger micki said...

This is another from my first roll of infrared film that I shot last summer. I had this tree on the list of MUST SHOOT subjects. It turned out just as I'd hoped. It was over 95 degrees that day when we got to the park right around noon. Very sunny, nice amount of clouds in the sky. I used only a red #25 to shoot this roll, and was fairly pleased with the results. Some day I'll invest in a true infrared filter.

I was really excited to see this shot and read that you experimented with IR film. It's one thing that I've been wanting to do for a long time now. I almost got a big lot of color IR film, but missed the local sale by 5 minutes!

I've just been too cheap to buy it new at almost $20/roll!

It is expensive to purchase and then have processed. My second roll I really blew it. What a waste of cash. But I learned, and that's the only way I'll learn. Can't wait til the buds on these trees start popping. I'm ready to try again.

I'm blown away by this photo. It looks to me to have a very delicate "fern-like" appearance. Unless my eyes deceive me it's a willow tree?

No, not a willow. Don't know what it is, though. I'll see if I can identify next time we go back. On my heavily wooded peninsula, there are only a few places to go to watch the sun set. We go to the park often.

Nice experiment. Looks very surreal. Pity IR photography doesn't work with digital SLRs. I would like to have tried this some time.

Great shot lovely textures almost wisp like. Some good news is that some DSLR's will shoot IR. You will need something like a Hoya R72 Filter but it can be done!. To test if your DSLR can do it dgo to a dark room with a remote control from your TV. IN the dark shoot a 10 second exposure wile pointing said remote at the lens and pressing buttons. If you get an image then you can shoot IR (D50 can do it fine)

Very cool.

At first glance, it looked like surf breaking over a huge, mostly unseen rock (the trunk of the tree).

Consider the shot a success, as far as I'm concerned.

Wild shot! I Love It!

My husband works with IR cameras...but this nothing like he gets. (His cameras are used as diagnostic tools.)
