Autumn Wonderland

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

LAOWA 15mm f/4 Wide Angle Infrared Car

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

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.

After taking some Autumn Landscapes images at Anderwood in the New Forest last weekend, I used some of my Topaz Labs plugins to create different looks to the original photographs. I did this to Create new looks to the images. Brighten things up as the weather was overcast and dull. Here are 3 different images, processed with various Topaz Plugins, along with the original image in each case for comparison.

Anderwood Colour Infrared

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

Oxeye Daisies in Colour Infrared.

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
