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
It’s been a while for me to take some Infrared images, but a walk out looking for fungi in the New Forest provided a good opportunity to bring my converted Canon 20D camera along to take some Autumn shots. As per usual I experimented with different white balance’s whilst taking them, and the processing used some Photoshop actions I have to reverse colour channels, and produce faux film infrared black
I recently bought the LAOWA 15mm f/4 Wide Angle Macro Lens, and so after snapping some normal shots, thought I’d give it a quick try out with my converted Colour Infrared 20D Camera. Here are my first results and impressions of this lens, when used for Infrared Photography. As expected with a lens this wide, getting the sun in front will exhibit some dramatic lens flair that can be seen
I had a look back at some of the first images I took on the converted Canon 20D Colour Infrared Camera, way back in January 2011. The White balance I had not correctly set, so the pictures looked bad on my original conversions. I decided to see what I could get from the images, using some of the new image processing software that I have acquired since then, and some
Whilst up in the Yorkshire Dales in September, a walk on a sunny day, gave me the opportunity to take out my converted Canon 20D camera and take some Enhanced Colour Infrared images. Having now processed them using a variety of methods and several Topaz Plugins ( including Adjust, Restyle , Glow and Texture Effects), I have this collection of Colour Infrared Landscapes from the day.
With the beginning of November, and a reasonable day – a stroll around the New Forest’s Anderwood Site is a pleasant walk. Taking along a converted Digital Infrared Camera added to the fun. The Cameras filter as mentioned before is a Canon 20D with an Enhanced Colour Infrared Filter (equivalent to 665nm Filter). The trees and foliage provided interesting and varied scenary, with the leaves reflecting some of the light
Garston Wood RSPB site is a great place for spring flowers – especially Bluebells and Wild Garlic, and I have take lots of shots there, both as landscapes and closeup / macro shots of the flowers etc. This spring I also took a converted infrared camera along. The camera has a filter equivalent to 665nm Filter and is often refereed to as an Enhanced Infrared Filter, letting more colour through
As a macro and infrared enthusiast photographer, what better way than to photograph when combining the two photographic disciplines ! So on a recent visit to Alners Gorse butterfly reserve this summer, I just went armed with my Infrared Converted 20D Camera and a 100mm macro lens and a tripod. (A slight lie – I took a normal colour camera too – just in case of something special). My 20D
