Lonesome Pine

Another play with infrared. I liked the way the tree stood out against the sky.

I find myself drawn to IR images lately - mostly for inspiration and to see how it should be done! Very striking shot. Click!

An interesting IR photo that works quite well. Odd how the "colour" of the tree trunk changes so much. Nicely composed with the clouds in the right place.

Thank you for all your kind comments. The colour changes in the trunk as I get a "hot spot" in the centre of the image, sometimes it is more noticeable than others, hopefully I will find a way around it fairly soon as it can be a bit distracting. Emma

I love all your infra red photos. I have used B&W infra red film in the past but its hard to get the right exposure and digital helps so much in this aspect. Also the film had to be loaded in total darkness as it can fog easily due to the light getting past the velvet light seals.

Just a point about the 'hotspot' you mention above. I found this too on my Dimage 7, I think it is partly due to the anti-reflective lens coatings being optimised for visible and not infra red wavelenghs so you tend to get more unwanted refections causing glare.

Here is a very informative website about digital infrared photography, and it also has information about how to test your camera to see if you can use it for IR
