PMAE No 103

A trip to a local pond with my IR camera. We still have no snow and the temperatures are very warm for December 54f(12c). We have crisp mornings but everything is so dry. I am worried about later in the year.
Instant FAv!

I'm always fascinated how IR images can look so wintery. Very effective.

@gamelee Truly grateful for the fav. So far this season, this 'IR snow' is the only 'snow' we in Flagstaff can claim.

@cjphoto Thank you so much, the beauty of IR is that I can go in full sunshine to get my shots.

@joemuli Thank you ever so much for the fav.

@pistache Thank you so very much for the fav. The IR camera conversion is the best method in my book. Would be cool to see yours.

@lizhammond Thank you so kindly for the fav. The converted camera is a big help but now that my version of Photoshop is so old, I can add it to my laptop.

@777margo Truly grateful for the fav, thank you so much. The pond was almost deserted except for the ducks who were somewhat miffed that I haven't brought them anything.

@Dawn Thank you very much, this infrared is surreal because it may look like snow it was 54f and I was in just a sweater.

@fbailey It is for sure. IR is a strange and sometimes pernicious world. The edits still sometimes baffle me.

@blueberry1222 Thank you so kindly.

@sunshinepix @365projectorgjenfurj @bokehdot Very grateful, thank you very kindly. The IR is fun, especially since I can go out at mid-day which lets me get the best light for these images.

Great shot. I didn't even know there are IR cameras? I have an IR filter to mount on the lens to be able to shoot IR but it includes a lot of editing to get the feeling you have achieved here.

@ingajohansson Thank you so much.

I had my old Sony A37 converted - used Life Pixel to do it. There are others who will do this, average cost is about $250. The beauty is that you can see your image in camera and then make adjustments on the fly. but with filters the down side is that you can't see your image. I tried that path at first but wasn't getting what I wanted.

I find that the post work in Photoshop okay but since my technical skill with PS is limited, sometimes I find things frustrating. If I would take the time to learn how to do pre-sets then maybe I'd have more fun. YouTube has several videos/tutorials as well. My rule is to just keep trying since I learn best through doing.

Very fascinating effect! Lovely.

The colors here are fascinating. Another Fav.

A very arresting image. A unique fav. Seems partly color and partly black and white. Is your IR camera a completely separate camera. Or is it just a setting on a regular camera?

@joysabin Thank you, never heard of Life Pixel. This is very interesting :)

Very intriguing and strangely beautiful. Sad though that our weather seems to be so extreme (global warming?!)

Wowww love it

@rosiekerr Thank you so very much. IR is a surreal place.

@eudora Thank you so kindly for the fav. I love the intensity of the IR conversions.

@mbrutus Very grateful, thank you very much. My camera is strictly IR now. I used my first DSLR with interchangeable lenses. I do recommend doing a conversion vs add on filters but the expense difference may be the defining factor. I like being able to see what I've composed. It did take me a while to grasp what the finished image 'should' look like after post edit but I still have issues with Photoshop now and then :):)

@overalvandaan It is surreal for sure but the intensity of the colors is what draws me to continue with IR. Global warming is unsettling without any doubts.

@mack_view Thank you so very much.

@caitnessa Thank you so very much. I apologize for the way too long delay in responding.

@stephanies So very grateful and please accept my apologies for not responding sooner. IR is fun when it works but then that's true with all photography.
