Digital IR 2, Thoughts on My Creative Process
A stroll with film camera shooting Rollie RPX 400 an orthochromatic B+W film. Using this film with a Red 25 deep Red filter produces a negative similar to IR. Well this digital age has me a bit less patient so standing at the bus stop I thought. In theory digital doesn’t react to color filters yet last spring I exposed some orange Poppies with a red filter with a good result.
Setting the camera on B+W I went into the menu and applied a Red/Purple filter the darkest available. My idea being if the filter was applied internally I might have a better starting point to create this effect. So convert even when shot on BW, to B+W IR followed by contrast and sharpening. The second image is re opened in PS Convert again save in Newspaper mode contrast and sharp.
IR close but not quite, perhaps over sharp yet it feels like I saw it staring almost into sun just out of frame in left. Opinions on effect? Thoughts appreciated.
The trick is not found by letting the camera tell you what it can’t do, it is found by making the camera do what you want.

Olympia Faces, Thoughts a Bit of a Rant S.O.S.
Another cool wet morning,
I miss the morning light, golden sharp angles a drive/walk to coffee seeking the highlight in conversation, life. I thought Oly would not offer this light often. The drought and warmth has provided the light I love. I see it through my window, beyond my reach. Meds pain fractured routine the light escapes me.

Christmas shopping at Archibald and Sisters this dapper man said I couldn’t get an image with his eyes open. Took a few but the first shot was the one.

Hundreds of new images in Galleries of re-designed site on July 1st. One comment hundreds more to show but why bother? Sharing, giving away the new world of “Photographers” I give prints away on occasion but everything from every shoot. Like on FB support a multi billion $Corp. and then you don’t have to overwork your click finger. Worried about having to leave an email address ya I’m gonna sell your address LOL like social nitwit sites aren’t. simple solution have a junk email address so you won’t receive unwanted ads. I don’t send them but you could then use addy on other sites. Simple and you can see more information on other sites. I have ranted about this before and have also said my Art is about communication but without response why bother talking.
