A Return to Childhood

Walking in the Woods

I recently took a walk over Fleet Common, where I used to go as a child when visiting Grandparents.  As a child I would run and play, pretending to be a soldier with a stick for a gun.  On this walk I went armed with 1 lens ( my Canon 17-40mm L) and two camera bodies.  My Canon 5D Mark IV and 720nm Colour Infrared Converted 20D.

I will start off with the results of the infrared camera, which give views that maybe can only be imagined when processed.

For the processing of the infrared images – I use Photoshop CC and a mixture of  Topaz Plugins – namely Restyle, Glow, Adjust & Impression.  I don’t always used all the plugins on each image.

Now to contrast these some none IR images from the walk.
