Wordy Wednesday #146 “Backyard Infrared”

In a previous post entitled “Photo Ops are All Around” I talk about a presentation I used to make to photographers called “Right in Your Own Backyard” which was based on the premise that you needn’t travel halfway around the world when great photo ops are closer to home. Today’s image was made literally in my backyard, during a light snowstorm last weekend.


You might want to compare the differences between that and another backyard image here that was made the previous year. The images were made with different cameras (Lumix G2 vs Lumix G5 converted to infrared) and lenses (Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 vs Lumix G Vario 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH.) While there’s some snow in the older images, there’s lots more in the one shown today.

And of course the elephant in the room (or backyard) is that one was captured with visible light the other was made using Infrared, which shows that IR is a viable capture option even in the Winter.

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.”
