POTD: Badlands Infrared

Conata Basin, Badlands National Park, South Dakota, USA. 590nm infrared capture.

590nm infrared capture.

I captured this image using a Fujifilm X-E1 mirrorless camera that was converted to capture infrared (590nm conversion from Life Pixel Infrared).  I liked the combination of textures in the rocks and the deep black sky. I decided to leave the blue tint in the vegetation instead of completely converting the image to monochrome. Had I done that, the vegetation would have disappeared.

Processing infrared images isn’t hard if you have the right tools and know how to use them. Download my video tutorial on infrared processing with Lightroom and Photoshop.

POTD: Deserted

Abandoned car near Nelson, Nevada, USA.
Abandoned car near Nelson, Nevada, USA.

This old car is one of many relics near Nelson, Nevada. I captured this image using a digital infrared camera. The bright foliage and orange sky is a result of the 590nm infrared capture. If you have an old DSLR or point and shoot digital camera lying around, you can have it converted to capture infrared light and have a new creative tool.
