It was too hot to do a lot of things outside. I usually clip the herds' manes by this time of the year, but I'm going to wait for my 'farm' help to do that this coming week. Charlie was nagging me for a walk so I headed up the driveway with just the Infrared camera.
Driveway: 665nm Filter
While hot days with a midday sun are horrible for most photography, those are the prime conditions for Infrared. Different filters with different wavelengths of light give different looks.
Charlie was very unimpressed with the heat and hot sun. I thought I'd cool him off by heading into the forest...
Charlie in Infrared. Zombie Dog!
Infrared does some weird stuff to the eyes of people and dogs! They look really odd.
I gave Charlie a ride back to the ridge and started home.
This was neat in IR but I sure liked it in Sepia black and white better.
I dropped the Hot Dog off at the house with hubby. They proceeded to watch really old strange Westerns on TV. I am not into blurry crappy movies at all.
I grabbed a 720nm filter from my pile of ancient filters I had. I wanted to experiment and enjoy the summer day some more.
The herd under one of the boxelders they love to use for shade. I took this shot in Infrared with a 720nm filter which turns anything with chlorophyll in it basically white.
Infrared is fun to experiment with. Thank goodnes
the mules didn't appear to be Zombies!
The 720nm filter will produce white leaves and blue sky
if you have a converted camera and use the green grass to set
your white balance.
Infrared offers so many possibilities in a creative way.

to our house. Those are leaves
The flowers will come in a few
Yes, I do experiment a lot. It is the one thing I am passionate about. Monday was just a great day for it.
