Best of 2010 | Top 15 Infrared

Following in the footsteps of my two previous posts in the "Best of 2010" series, I'm now moving on to the final set... Infrared. I obviously didn't shoot much infrared this year, so it made the choice for this selection a little easier.

I'll be approaching infrared photos photos differently next year. One of the things on the photography to-do list over the winter is to have a DSLR converted over to a dedicated infrared camera. I'm sure that the transition to a dedicated camera will make shooting infrareds much easier on a regular basis.

So, here we go... the top 15 infrared photos of the year... according to me...

Gilbert Lake State Park, NY
New Jersey Botanical Garden, Ringwood, NJ
Bear Mountain Bridge, Fort Clinton, NY
Marshall Point Lighthouse, ME
Albany Rural Cemetery, Albany, NY

Moose River Plains, Adirondack Mountains, NY
Albany Rural Cemetery, Albany, NY
Landis Arboretum, NY
Albany Rural Cemetery, Albany, NY
Farmland, Otsego County, NY
Evergreen Cemetery, Portland, ME
Portland Head Light, Portland, ME

Your IRs are so good they made me go back and look at mine last night and do some of them in color instead of all B&W. Mine look pretty good, but it made me really appreciate your images even more. You picked perfect subjects for this kind of shooting.

Thank you, Melissa!

Carl... The conversion is always a guessing game... sometimes they just don't look right after the channel swap, and there's nothing you can do to get them to do so... that's when I go B/W with them!

I have found I get best results if I can get to a certain look in the raw editor first and then adjust whit balance in PShop. You are right. Some just don't work quite right in color.

I have a raw editor that I only use for IR photos that seems to handle it better than PS does. I use that first... see if I like it with the brownish tones or if I want to swap the blue/red channels and go for the blue. I have to take it PS for that.
