foliage in B&W
Posted By: JMR, 03-06-2009, 06:06 PM

This is a BW conversion of a white birch and red-orange maple leaves- (I think!). I swung toward the infrared look and it came out rather well.

Not sure I understand your request. But if you are looking for information on infrared photography, do a search in the Pentax forums. This photo is not really infrared, only meant to look like it and have an ethereal glow. For true infrared, you have to either shoot infrared film or modify your camera. Hope that helps.

Thanks, its an ancient Chinese secret, just like in that old, very bad commercial about laundry detergent.

Like it a lot! The birch, with its natural camouflage, fits so nicely in the general dreamy view in B+W!

Many thanks. Been at it a long time.

Thanks. Once I saw that the birches would stand out against the maples, I was overjoyed, as it is not often I get to convert foliage into BW successfully. Landscapes fare much better.
