Color Infrared Experiments

Magnolia Plantation, Charleston – D810 IR converted to 590nm, 24-120mm

Lately I have been experimenting with color infrared using a D800e converted to 720nm and a D810 converted to 590nm. Most images are shot using a 24-120mm f/4.0 Nikon lens and processed using Lightroom and finished in Photoshop. Will probably be adding more images to this page later…color IR is very much a work in process for me.

Acadia 2018

Sunset on Cadillac Mountain, Acadia – Nikon D850, 24-70mm

Below is a gallery of images I took an a recent trip to Acadia National Park. Went on a workshop with Tony Sweet and Susan Milestone, my go to workshop people. It was a very good trip and the color was very good! I was a little less overwhelmed by the scale and beauty of Acadia this time, still magnificent, just could focus a little more on capturing the beauty of the place. Enjoy viewing, I certainly had a good time making these images!

Mantis Mania – Helicon Focus

Female Mantis – Nikon D850, 70-200mm w/Canon 500D close up, 23 image stack

Lately I have been photographing the mantis in the garden, usually can find at least 6 or more at any time. Equipment: Nikon D850 with a 70-200mm, sometimes with a Canon 500D close up filter sometimes not. Most images are shot pretty wide open (f/4.0 or so) using focus stacking and processing the stack in Helicon Focus. That way I can get much more of the mantis in focus while keeping the background very soft. Click on thumbnails below to view the Gallery…
