St Mary's Church-yard - Painswick

By cattyal  
I bumbled off out today again - well the sun was out, the sky was blue - it would have been daft to stay at home!

I've not done any IR pics in this churchyard before - well pics with my current IR camera so I jumped off the bus on the way home, spent an hour bumbling around Painswick and took a few pics.

Processing involved a bit of Topaz Adjust and levels tweak - I'll pop the original up as well.

There is quite a bit of work involved for the gardeners

Knew it was Painswick before reading the description Ali....It's lent itself to IR really well too. Good work and good fun chatting earlier.....

It is a fairly distinctive churchyard - I wonder if there are more like it anywhere? Maybe I should investigate - but probably won't Smile

I thought I'd lost the sun when I arrived - but fortunately the clouds did move on and it reappeared - there's a bit of info about the Yews HERE

Love it.
It looks an amazing place.
I'd love to try Infra Red but no dedicated camera or filter!

It is pretty neat - though the village itself is just your bog-standard Cotswold village (you kinda get used to them after a few years!).

I bought my little camera online - ready converted - for a bit over 100 - it's done very well. It's much easier with a converted jobbie than with a filter. You can do the pics handheld with converted but need longer exposures and tripods when using the R72 filter - which is why my filter is at the bottom of a box somewhere Smile

A perfect subject for the IR work. Lovely symmetry.

Thanks Joline - now I wonder if I'll get any more opportunities to play with the camera this year? I hope so!

I normally dont really like iR photography even though I love mono photography but, for some resson, it workes really well around churches and graveyards! Is it because it adds an eerie and somewhat ghostly/spiritual flavour to the scene? This is excellent!

Thanks Chris - I don't have too many locations near me that work too well with IR although the local park is pretty good with lots of trees and a lake - but the rest of town has yet to inspire me.

I knew this churchyard would work though - precisely why I stopped off there on the way home that day Smile
