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. Continue reading New York and Washington – Infrared
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. Continue reading Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island
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
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
I have finally had the time to post process the infrared photos I took at Millet’s Farm. These were taken with my Olympus E-M5, Olympus 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens with 680nm infrared filter. The images were post-processed with Raw Therapee, as this has a channel mixer to allow Red-Blue colour channel swap. Continue reading Millet’s Farm – Infrared
It has taken a while for me to get some of my older photos onto my website. But here are photos taken when we went to Rome. Infrared images taken with the Sony NEX-3, and visible-light images taken with the Canon 7D. Owing to the small size and lightweight of the Sony NEX-3, carrying two cameras was not a problem at all (even with a camera as big as the Canon 7D. Continue reading Rome Trip
Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire is a chateaux built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in 1874. It is a National Trust site, with large gardens, an aviary, many walks, play areas for children of different age groups, the main house and also a wine cellar to visit. We have visited this on quite a few occasions, and have found it relaxing and enjoyable, to walk and explore.
Here are photos of the grounds and also the wine cellar. Continue reading Waddesdon Manor
I have been an early follower of the Sony E-mount system, having bought and used the NEX-3, NEX-5, NEX-5N, NEX-7, NEX-6 and now the A7R and A6000 – I have noticed a gradual improvement with each new generation of E-mount camera in terms of usability and functionality.
The Sony NEX-3 was the first camera I modded to full-spectrum by removing the internal cut filter (ICF). It proved useful for UV and infrared imaging, as the native lenses retained the ability to infinity focus. Continue reading Sony NEX-3 Infrared
