Infrared Photography - Morning on the banks

in photography •  16 days ago 

As the sun was rising, the plants were getting the first rays of the morning light. The brush and trees were busy reflecting that light making them appear white to my camera. And the sky is a yellow color due to the infrared wavelength I am taking pictures in.

These photos are my posts for #colorchallenge

The tree trunks bark has such a contrasting look compared to the leaves on the tree reflecting light back away from the tree.

Even with the tree canopy, the plants are getting light coming through and can be seen as bright white.

Looking down the trail, it goes on for awhile circling the lake. It was a nice walk, and early morning before the early summer heat got to me.

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.
