Wordy Wednesday #147 “Winter Infrared”


Continuing a theme I began last week of Winter Infrared that kicked off on our sister blog, Mirrorless Photo Tips, with a post entitled “What Inspires You to Make Photographs,” I’ve been continuing making infrared images in a winter when the only leaves on the trees are from evergreens, or whatever these trees are at the Hidden Valley Open Space.

Image was shot with a Panasonic Lumix G5 that had been converted to infrared-only capture by LifePixel and a Lumix G Vario 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH lens. Exposure was 1/125 sec at f/11 and ISO 400. The RAW file captured was processed in Silver Efex Pro, with a hint of copper toning to warm it up.

If you would like to experience some of the same thrill of discovery that occurred during the first phase of your photographic education, my suggestion is that you never stop exploring. Try some new things. Maybe it’s infrared photography but whatever you do try something that’s outside your normal comfort zone, which was the subject of yesterday’s post.


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.”
