Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave...

The intrigue of IR . . .

As most of you who follow some of my work will know, I’m a self-confessed ‘lazy’ and reluctant post-editor . . . that is, I’d rather keep editing (if any) very very simple (as unobtrusive/as unnoticeable as possible) in deference to spending any available spare time shooting. That said, I’ve been “dragged kicking and screaming” (just kidding!) to the world of editing via good friends Rhoufi and James Smith, whom without their patience and persistence, I’d still be shooting jpeg ;-)

That said, I’ve always been rather intrigued/inspired by the IR (infra-red) imaging of other RB’rs here and like HDR, if done really well, IR gives a whole new aspect to b/w’s, and even colour! I envy those who have a dedicated/converted IR camera, but in the meanwhile, thank goodness for Nik’s very clever version of IR “filter” – it’s been quite fun to play with :-) Below, some images re-found in the ‘archives’ of March 2012, most of which edited with just a little (ie. very toned down!!!) IR ‘indulgence’

Ohhh! But I’ve quickly learned the IR filter doesn’t work on ‘everything’ ;-)

. . . I rather like what IR has ‘done’ to the copper dome of Flinders Street Station though :-))

And because I couldn’t decide which I liked better – colour? Or b/w??
