Here I have compiled the infrared images from my recent trip to America which particularly stand out to me; I have not included those of the Statue of Liberty & Liberty Island as they have already been posted. These were taken with my Olympus E-PL5 using the 14-42mm kit lens and a 650nm infrared filter. Images were processed with Capture One Pro 10 which I have upgraded to recently.

I would have to say that the visit to the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island was probably the true highlight of our recent trip to America. My wife had booked our boat tickets online for the cruise to Liberty Island before we had left England, so that was always on our itinerary for the trip.

While in France for our summer holiday, I had taken some photos of the art work at the Bouchard Aine et Fils winery in both visible light and infrared (680nm). Hence I thought it would be worth comparing how the different spectrum of light may bring up different details of the art work. Continue reading Art – visible light vs infrared

South France – Infrared

While travelling in France, I had chosen to bring my full-spectrum Olympus E-PL5 along so as to be able to shoot landscapes in infrared. In this post, I have included the photos which I particularly like. These were shot with the 14-42mm kit lens with 680nm infrared filter. Continue reading South France – Infrared

In order to capture autumn colours, I had visited Florence Park in Oxford, UK to take plenty of photos. During that trip, I had also taken my trusty full-spectrum Olympus E-PL5 to try and capture autumn in infrared. Having looked at the photos again recently, I decided that they were nice enough to post. So here they are. Continue reading Autumn scenes – infrared

During our previous trip to Singapore, we did not have a chance to go to Gardens by the Bay. Hence during this trip, we decided that this would be a place we would definitely visit this time round. And we were definitely not disappointed. Continue reading Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

When in Penang, there are a few areas of interest worth visiting. Of note is the Penang jetty, which is a collection of jetties close to each other. While there are local residences there, as well as some shops, it is also an attraction frequented by visitors to Penang. As can be expected, there are plenty of places to photograph while there. In fact, there was a wedding photo shoot taking place at that time of the evening due to the great lighting which is ideal for photo shoots. Continue reading Penang Jetty

During this holiday, we have made a few trips to Penang. On one of these trips, we took the Penang ferry across to Penang Island, rather than via one of the two bridges which link Penang Island to the mainland. This gave me the opportunity to take photos of the harbour, as well as the boats/ships moving along the Penang Strait. I managed to capture images both in visible light and infrared.

Street photography

Street photography is an area of photography that I have to confess to not having much experience in. There are many people who walk around with either a 35mm or 50mm prime lens for street photography. As I did not bring either for this trip, I decided to do this using my zoom lens; I brought only two cameras for this trip – my main camera is the Sony A7R, and the other is my full-spectrum Olympus E-PL5 with kit lens and 650nm infrared filter. The B+W processing of the Sony A7R images was done using Capture One Pro 8 from the Sony RAW file, rather than in-camera, as it allows me to select the look I would like.

During our trip back to Malaysia this time round, our relatives had planned a few places for us to visit. One of these was the Paddy Museum in Alor Setar, Kedah Malaysia. This museum, as the name suggests, is dedicated to remember the staple food of many cultures – rice. And it is set amidst the multiple paddy fields in this region. Continue reading Paddy Museum
