Wow! I can hardly believe it’s been since September since I last posted! I have been a very busy girl working to set up my new photography business so, although I have been shooting a lot, I haven’t had the time to dedicate to keeping up with my blog. As time permits, I am going to try to post images more frequently as I rather miss the challenge and growth I experienced from shooting something new every day.
I decided to combat my cabin fever with a couple of walks at some nearby parks this past weekend. Both of these images were taken with my infrared converted camera during yesterday’s walk. It really wasn’t as dark and gloomy as these images suggest, but rather they were processed to appear that way.
Since finishing out the year of my Project 365 photo challenge I have taken rather a long hiatus from posting any images. It’s been rather liberating to not have to worry about keeping up with posting a daily image, but by no means have I taken a break from shooting. In fact, I have been shooting nearly every day since the end of the challenge and lovin’ every minute of it! Here’s a sampling of infrared images taken over the weekend while hiking at a nearby state park. Thanks for stopping by!
On my recent hikes to a nearby metro park I found these strange, thorny trees. I have no idea what kind of tree they are, but they just called out to be photographed. I was able to capture some cool images, but something told me I should try converting them to black and white. In color, they just didn’t quite capture the dramatic feeling these trees evoke. But as soon as I converted the first image to black and white I just knew it was the way they were meant to be portrayed.
Do you know what kind of tree these are? I would love to hear from you if you do.
As always, please feel free to leave your comments, suggestions, and critiques below. Thanks for looking!
