my new toy...

Alain and Eva's wedding : Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel

So earlier this year, I had one of my Canon 7Ds converted to infrared and have been playing around a little bit with it. I have a lot more experimenting to do to see how far I can push the limits of infrared, but for now, I have just been shooting landscapes.

So far, without much experimentation, it’s a fun toy. Making trees go white like they are covered with snow is an interesting effect that can’t be done in photoshop, even if there is an infrared filter that makes you think you can. It’s not the same.

Perhaps I should have converted a full frame camera, but I wanted to really use this for portraits rather than landscapes. So I’ll do some tests and see what I can create. In the meantime, these are just a few sepia toned pics from Japan and Hawai’i.
