Pittsburgh, PA – PNC Park (Infrared)


Its been a while since my last IR post. I am still working on my IR Photography book for Focal Press. It is still on schedule to be released 1st Quarter 2012. I will keep you posted. This shot is from PNC Park in Pittsburgh, PA. I was walking to the stadium and decided to try it in IR. The ferry was cruising by and it adds to the Burgh feel! My Pirates faded quickly since July and now are outta the playoff race, but I def enjoyed those few weeks we were in contention! PNC Park is one of the most beautiful parks in MLB! …even in IR! =)

Heidelberg, Germany (Infrared)

Here is one more shot from the beautiful Heidelberg, Germany!  I only took a handful of IR shots  this day, but this one I liked alot!  A nice different view of the old bridge/city.  You can see the castle up on the left.  This was taken at dusk….around 9:45 PM.  So if you are thinking of trying Infrared…you can take shots anytime of the day!!

I noted on my Facebook page yesterday, I roughly plan to give my first speech/presentation/tutorial on Infrared Photography for the Austin SMUG Group on October 20th.  If you are in Austin this day hope you can join us!  I’ll post firm details as it gets closer!
