As I mentioned back in my blog post in March (Dusting Off Old Ideas), one of my Creative Arts Initiative projects involved Infrared Photography. Since then, I decided to ship off my old Canon 7D to have its sensor converted to Infrared-Capable. This month, I have finally had a chance to test it out for the first time!
For my first test, I decided to wander through one of my favorite parks in Fort Wayne: Bicentennial Acres. I have been here dozens of times, and it is perfect in that it has a wide variety of subjects to photograph with everything from traditional forested trails and rivers to bridges and an old abandoned building.
So, please enjoy just a few of my favorite infrared images. The editing process is essential to these images, as the method of extracting these beautiful colors involves swapping the color channels of the images in a pixel editing software (in this case Adobe Photoshop). The original images out of camera look quite different from the channel swapped images below.
