Just a field by joysabin

Just a field

Made a tweak to my white balance for my IR. Used GIMP for post.
I really like this. Shows the possible potential of IR. I find I get a lot of misses when I shoot IR but every now and then there is a little gem like this? I really love the feeling of the foreground.

@gardencat The field was tall brown very dry grass and I have tired to capture it in 'regular' color but like this too. I totally agree with the hit and miss philosophy, mostly misses but with the WB tweak, I am hopeful. Thank you.

Love your processing/edit - excellent

@graemestevens Thank you for the fav, had to escape to my favorite photo haunt and was happy to see no one else. Just a curmudgeon day.

Cool. I might have to give it a shot.
April 27th, 2017  
beautiful, you are getting to know this thing
April 27th, 2017  
looks fascinating

@nearlyincontrol Truly grateful for the fav, thank you. IR is addictive. I went the route of camera conversion which is more money but much easier. Love to see some of yours.

@kali66 Thank you, I feel like I am working in slow motion with this IR, some days it just clicks some not so much. I finally put it together to lower my WB on camera since I am always lowering it in Photoshop:). Gotta laugh at myself now and then.

@jerome Thank you very much for the fav. The surreal colors some times leave a bag taste but today they didn't.

@kali66 PS, thank you a great deal for the fav.

Cool photo! I like it very much! Fav.

@joysabin I'll order a cheap filter to slap on my 50 and see what happens.
April 27th, 2017  
Lovely ...fav

@gardenfolk You are very kind, thank you for the fav. Infrared is fun and a challenge.

@pdulis I am so grateful for the fav, thank you. My favorite open meadow.

Great processing and composition
April 27th, 2017  
@jo38 So thankful for your fav. This is one of my fav spots around Flagstaff to shoot.
April 27th, 2017  
@joysabin I have so much to learn and limited by my iPhone as well...but still having fun!
April 27th, 2017  
Simply amazing!! This is such an astounding effect.

@gardenfolk Keep shooting, it doesn't matter what camera, it is your vision that is the key- keep taking images. In my opinion doing is fundamental. This community of photographers has been so very supportive and I am thankful that I happened to find this site.

@cjphoto You are so wonderfully kind, thank you!
April 28th, 2017  
@joysabin Thank you! I am enjoying this site and the support very much! For the most part, I am pleased with my iPhone and photos. I can see improvement and I see more beauty all around me.
April 28th, 2017  
@gardenfolk Have you tried using any apps yet? Snapseed and Deep Art effects are loads of fun.
April 28th, 2017  
@joysabin I have not heard of those...I will check them out! I took a class at the Apple Store and they mentioned Procam, Hydra and Slow Cam.

Late in commenting, but loving this unconditionally. A BIIIIG fav!
April 28th, 2017  
I have no idea what you are saying in your narrative hahaha but I like it
April 28th, 2017  
I am so enjoying experimenting with processing - like a new aspect of photography which I never previously looked into - this is a fantastic example!
April 28th, 2017  
Oh goodness....this is just amazing! Fav
April 28th, 2017  
Gorgeous capture!
April 29th, 2017  
A very special field.
I still haven't tried this infrared. On my list for sure!

@domenicododaro Thank you so very very much. I had one of those smack yourself moments when it occurred to me to adjust the WB in camera so that I would have less fuss in post. Duh!

@annied Thanks, the white balance is a big component in infrared. I learned how to manually set it when I took the night photography course last month and it finally dawned on me to try it in IR. Sometimes I just slow to catch on.

@brett101 The things that we can do with DSLR's are amazing. I started in film and was intimidated to say the least. I like learning and IR has a wonderful learning curve. Thank you very much.

@megpicatilly Thank you so very kindly, I take two steps back with learning and sometimes I even land on my feet, often I don't.

@cscarr97 Thank you so very kindly.

@overalvandaan Thank you, I love this meadow. The infrared work is fun, you should give it a try. It does have a learning curve but don't give up. Welcome back, so glad that you are posting again.

I am always intrigued by IR shots. I am tempted to get my old Canon Rebel converted, just a little confused by the choices!
May 1st, 2017  
Very dramatic. Fav.
May 13th, 2017  
Very good effect. Digital IR I guess? Maybe you couldn't do this with IR film? Something else I have never tried and should learn about.
May 14th, 2017  
@yrhenwr I have some old B&W IR work but, digital IR has given me more challenges. I tried filters at first and then converted my first dslr. It made a huge difference. I am still very low on my learning curve.
May 14th, 2017  
@ukandie1 I would definitely recommend getting a conversion, I used Lifepixel (their site has really good info- the conversion comes with a free 1/2 hour training included. I have learned a great deal about my camera with the conversion. Thinking in IR is truly interesting. The post work that is needed has also been a challenge. I have even used Photoshop and gimp on the same image to get what I wanted. I say go for it.

@davidrobinson Thank you so very kindly.
May 14th, 2017  
@joysabin Thanks... I'll look into it.
