Project 365 – Infrared Willow

This morning a stole away to a local park for a bit with my infrared camera and my newest toy, an old Konica 35mm film camera that I picked up on the cheap at a local antique mall.  I am still on my first roll of film and hope to finish it out and get it developed later this week.  It’s a beauty and I am keeping my fingers crossed that it actually captures decent images.

For this image of a weeping willow I decided to go with just a partial channel swap instead of the full swap, which would have resulted in deep blue sky and water.  I preferred the purple hue of the sky and water because to me the blue hue just didn’t produce an image that looked like it was captured with an infrared camera.   But it won’t be long until the leaves finally return and I can start attempting to create the beautiful, surreal images of traditional infrared photography with the gorgeous snow-white foliage and deep blue skies!

Project 365 – Silly Boy

I asked my little one to pose for me tonight on a new rug I bought today for my studio and for the life of me I couldn’t get a serious pose out of him.  He was full of giggles and funny faces.  The takeaway:  The next time he’s in a silly mood when I ask him to pose, just roll with it.  🙂

Project 365 – Bird Watching… In A Grocery Store?

I captured today’s image with my cell phone while I was actually talking on the telephone and shopping at my local grocery store.  So it just goes to show you can be almost anywhere and still participate in bird watching.  🙂

Project 365 – Waiting

So I have to admit coming up with titles for each of my P365 images is not my favorite thing.  Most days I feel like I am lucky just to find the time to photograph, edit, and post my image.  Titling and commentating are pretty much an afterthought, so I realize my titles are generally rather uninspiring.  While contemplating today’s title, I also kicked around “Waiting For Spring” since our crazy Ohio weather just went from being a gorgeous and comfortable 60’s yesterday, to overcast and bone chilling today.  Ultimately I decided to go with “Waiting” and had to chuckled to myself because for me it was less about waiting for spring and more about waiting for the dadgum photographer to get the shot!  God bless my sweet friend Cindy for being so patient with me as I got in a little shooting practice today.  ♥
