Infrared Three

The Colonnade in Northeast Kansas City.  Experimenting again with infrared photography.
 I compose and focus the image, then adjust the focus for infrared, add the filter to the front of the lens, and shoot.   The filter blocks 100% of the visible light leaving only the infrared to reach the sensor.   No way to meter the light so trial and error applies.

 Above, this is what the image looks like coming right out of the camera, and, below, after adjustment in Photoshop.

 Kendra won Miss Photogenic in her pageant last weekend.   Congratulations....  she is also an aspiring photographer who would like to pursue that as a career....  after high school and college of course.
 Top two are studio shots.  The one below was in my backyard, available light only.   Others were taken at the Colonnade here in Northeast and were also exclusively available light.

 Nikon D3, top two Nikon 105mm Macro,  the rest Nikon 70-200mm.   Indoor shots ASA200, outdoor shots ASA 800.

Concourse Brush Crush

Yesterday Northeast neighbors and a crew from Parks and Recreation tackled the area west of the Colonnade continuing the brush removal that was begun last fall. I was booked all day... so I get zero credit for this.... but certainly can contribute before and after pictures. They even had some heavy machinery this time!!
