Dorset is experiencing something weird this year – summer! The skies are clear, the temperatures are hitting 30 degrees C and for people used to cloudy wet summers with just a glimpse of sunshine now and then it’s all most disturbing…..
So using this hot weather as an excuse to shoot yet more infrared handheld on the unmodified RX100 (with an R72 filter) , here we go.
First, a few of the pedestrian bridges over the River Stour near Tarrant Crawford – the leaves and grasses radiating IR like mad. All taken at 28mm setting at f1.8 using RAW, the ‘Black and White’ creative setting (for composition) and +1 exposure compensation.
This is the next bridge along – the field boundary is heavily overgrown on either side which help isolate the dark path.
And the same view but in landscape orientation with a lower contrast – can’t make my mind up which of the two is best.
Finally a small avenue of trees taken on the same day, the shadows on the road being an integral part of the composition.
As usual, all taken for the book cover market – hope you like them!
Beautiful series of images. Love the shadow detail in the last one.
I really like these! They make me want to go out and shoot some infrared photos of my own. Now, if only it wasn’t so hot out.
Know what you mean about the weather – I’m fading in the heat past lunchtime lately. Strong sunlight is the best for IR (especially if you don’t want to use a tripod) so I’m sticking to the mornings for shoots at the moment.
Looking forward to seeing you results.
