Wordy Wednesday #132 “Barr Lake Park in Infrared ”


Before moving to Daisy Hill and being able to walk to Bingham Lake, one of my favorite places to photograph was at Barr Lake State Park, which entailed a five mile drive form my former home, which is where I made the above infrared photograph.

This image was made using a Peca 914 filter with an Olympus EP-1 whose  low pass filter—that prevents infrared and ultraviolet light from striking the sensor—was removed. Lens used was an  Olympus 9-18mm f/4.0-5.6 (at 10mm) lens with an exposure of 1/640 sec at f/11 and ISO 400. The filter, equivalent to a Wratten 89B produced the kind of digital infrared image that we all expect. It was converted to monochrome by Silver Efex Pro where it was tone using the Copper toning option.

If you want to save a few bucks when converting your camera to infrared when ordering a conversion from LifePixel, use the coupon code “farace.”
