Infrared In The City / Canon 400d
Infrared in the city, it’s not an easy subject at the best of times if the sun isn’t absolutely beaming down. It’s infact quite a challenge without that sunlight highlighting all the bits us infrared photographers want us to.
Infrared In The City
It’s a couple of days before Christmas and we’re nipping into town to get some last minute bits and bobs for presents. We park in the multi-storey car park in the heart of Lincoln and I tell Stewart to park at the top so that we can make the most of the views around us, seeing as we have our camera’s with us too.
These photographs were taken with an IR converted Canon 400d paired with a standard kit lens.
Editing infrared photographs, if you’re familiar with it you’ll know it’s not easy, it’s actually quite hard and even more so without sunlight. Sunlight is obviously where most of the infrared comes from so the fact that it’s not present mean’s you won’t get as good results on a dull day, let alone a foggy one like the day I took these images.
I’ve not yet decided what my favourite way to edit infrared photographs are. I adore the black and white edits but there’s something so unique and refreshing in regards to the coloured ones too. It allows me to be that little more creative keeping the colour in the images.
Considering the weather, these photographs didn’t turn out half as bad as I thought they would and I am actually really pleased with the end result.
