Some Photos from Around Town
Posted By: Colorado CJ, 11-19-2016, 03:05 PM

Well I drove around Loveland today, flying my quad and taking some photos.

These were all shot with in 10 minutes of home using my Olympus OMD EM10 micro four thirds camera and 12-40mm lens.

I wanted to shoot B&W and I wanted the photos to bee a little more dramatic, so I used a 720nm IR filter over the lens. So these were shot using Infrared light.

I am REALLY liking shooting in Infrared. It really gives a different look to photos. Color IR is great, but I really like B&W IR. I'm sure I'm going to be shooting B&W Infrared photos A LOT!

I think the second shot is the winner with it's lighting and high detail.

Thanks everyone!

Man am I glad I picked this camera up when I did. This is the first camera I've had that can do IR photography. I would have had to send one of my other cameras in to get converted if I wanted to shoot IR any other way. It then wouldn't be good for anything else.

Shooting IR is going to open up a whole other way of shooting for me and fits right in with my B&W workflow.

A terrific group of photos. The second one, especially, is a jewel.
