Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Infrared

Infrared is such a fun photographic technique, let's continue it another week. Here's an image of the pond at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Virginia. Much of the time with infrared, I lower the saturation to almost nothing, or go straight to black and white. For this series, I decided to leave in the blues, purples and pinks once I did the color swap in Photoshop.

Hemlock Overlook Trail in Infrared

Sticking with infrared for another week, here's an image of one of the hiking trails at Hemlock Overlook in Virginia. On previous trips, I tried a much wider view to get more of the leaning trees to the left and right of the trail, but learned that the S shape of the curve was more interesting and made the image much less cluttered.

Arlington National Cemetery in Infrared

During a recent trip to Arlington National Cemetery with some photographers from the Arcanum, I put the infrared camera to use. With infrared, the green grass looks white, so I wasn't sure how the tombstones would contrast with the grass. Luckily, they contrasted nicely and I got some nice lines leading to the trees in the background.
