Recently I did a quick Grad session at Yorba Regional Park. Before the session I grabbed a couple Infrared shots of the lake at the park. I loved this view and thought shooting this one in HDR would bring some textures out on the tree. Infrared rocks!
La Quinta is just outside of Palm Springs, CA and this hotel is one of my favorites to stay for a day or so to relax and enjoy swimming in the pools. I think they have something like 28 of them! My kinda place! Time to take the drive out and take a few days off! Meet me there!
A pine tree I enjoy seeing in my neighbors backyard everyday (just something about it)…its big and about 30-40 feet high. I always look up and think, if the sky was good…I could make a cool pic! Here it is in Infrared! Enjoy!
We took a quick trip up to Santa Barbara to enjoy time off during the holidays. It was my first visit. We arrived and wanted to see the Mission. The outside was under construction and lots o people were there. As I asked for ticket prices…they told me no tripods allowed. Blah! So next time…gorilla pod! We stayed at a hotel right next to the beach. About 1/2 mile from the wharf. Nice! The weather was wonderful and we awoke this morning to catch some early AM HDR’s. As the sun rose…HDR time was complete. Now it was time to shoot in Infrared! The beach is lined with stoic palm trees. Just an amazing sight! I snapped bunches of pics while walking back…this one is a small snippet of the palm trees. Enjoy the view!

I recently had a Real Estate session in Palm Desert and brought along my Infrared camera! I shot about 13 IR photos and was hoping one IR shot would prove to be cool! I thought this one was it. The house is on the right. A few houses share the centrally located pool. I do not think I have ever seen an Infrared Real Estate photo? The agent may use it for the MLS? Does it work? Hopefully!!! Will let ya know how it goes!
I was lucky to have a weekend in Vienna, Austria on this trip and spent the day walking around and taking photos. I went out with my Infrared camera ready to capture some memories. I saw this mime dressed as Beethoven or an old school Venetian? He was entertaining and took pictures with many people. Not sure if he made much money…but when you come across moments like this…it makes your trip memorable! Thanks mime guy!
I am fading fast from using NIK software…especially for B&W shots. I now prefer “Perfect B&W” by onOne software. So many options! I used it for creating the shot above.
