Infrared Photography - Stones in the lake

in #colorchallenge4 years ago

The loop around the lake was a nice way to check out the wild life on the water and surrounding it. At one point there was an opening in the trees along with a few stones or small boulders in the water. I like how it broke up the water on the lake in the image. Along with the morning sunrise in infrared.

These photos are my posts for #colorchallenge


Camera ModelLumix GH3, modified by LifePixel for Full Spectrum
LensOlympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm-50mm
Filter720nm Infrared Passthrough filter
Shutter Speed1/800 sec
Film Speed200
SpectrumInfrared (IR)
Wavelength720 nanometers
LocationFort Mountain State Park, Georgia USA.


There are little ripples forming around the rocks, where the water on the lake is slightly moving and the rocks break that up. The bright white infrared is reflecting off the trees and onto the water as well.


It was partly cloudy, and in one direction a storm was brewing. If I stuck around for a few hours I would have probably got rained on.

I take pictures with a special camera. Its a Mirrorless DSLR that has been modified by Life Pixel to see light in other wavelengths. This allows my camera to see light in the Infrared [IR] around 1300 NM wavelength, through the visual spectrum and into the Ultraviolet A and B wavelengths roughly into the 300 NM wavelength.

I carry many filters on me to make the photos you see in my blog, these filters screw on my lens and help me isolate certain wavelengths for certain scenes. These filters can be IR / UV pass-through filters to assist me get a natural photo taking out the UV and IR light. Or I may use a Infrared pass-through filter capture just IR light. I can do the same with UV light as well, though I need some better filters which they can cost a few hundred dollars for true Ultraviolet pass through filters. So for right now I have B + W 403 bandpass filters that still allow some IR light in, due to their cheaper material.

There are also exotic glasses made of sapphire and germanium I am open to working with to replace my silica glass hot mirror with a material that allows even longer wavelengths of infrared to enter my cameras sensor. Special sensors, lenses and filters of that material would be needed as well, so it would be a big project but one that may give some even more unique photography results.

Addresses below to help me buy better camera equipment and support me to travel to locations to do photo and video and overall great blogs in new places. I would be happy to list some of the contributors in my posts for donations that help me along the way.


For more information on how I do my photography I have a short video on that:

We have missed you in PYPT the past couple of weeks! 😮
So, I presented this post for you and wanted you to know the PYPT folks are thinking of you! 😊

@thekittygirl aww well I've been outside most of the days for the last few months planting and laying out mulch. The sun just cooks me so I'm usually pretty tired. Once I get through all the labor I'm doing outside I plan on returning.

Thanks much for sharing it on #pypt. I showed some love to #pypt during my @steembasicincome interview and mentioned the raffle system.
