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.
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.
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.
