Pond (Infrared Image)

April 9, 2010

This was a situation where I came upon the scene and knew right away that I wanted to shoot it in infrared. I did not have a tripod with me and had no intention of lugging it around all day at this location. I normally shoot infrared at a very low ISO and use a tripod to accommodate the slow shutter speeds that go along with that. I also use it to compose the shot before putting on the IR filter because I can’t see through the filter. (It blocks virtually all visible light.) So my answer here was push the ISO up high,put the filter on, point the camera in the right direction making an educated guess about the composition, and shoot hand held. It worked out and the addition of the high ISO noise actually gives the shot the same kind of grainy feel as I used to get when I shot infrared film way back in the dark ages.
