Ok. Life in infrared ain’t all rosy (no pun intended).
The shots I thought might be naff ended up inspiring me.
The shots I thought would be fantastic are rubbish!
Take this one for example…. I created a long exposure facing into the sun, feeling confident that the left hand side of the shot would be bathed in the warmth of the sun’s rays creating a striking contrast of snow and trees. In reality,all this meant is that I was shooting into shadows and failed to find any highlights or definition in the shot, rendering it useless in infrared.
It’s not even a decent shot without the infrared… epic fail!
Still – onwards and upwards. It ain’t easy being a photographer.
Some (slightly) more successful infrared shots are available in the Taraji Blue infrared photo gallery.
