Infrared city

I went to Trondheim to see if I could find something to capture with my Infrared camera. Bright sunny days with some scattered clouds will create dramatic scenes.

The IR camera get at different kind of black and white look. I find it quite unique. Compared to a regular black and white image it has more contrast and some elements reflect IR light different than regular light.

The histogram

Most cameras have a feature called Histogram. The histogram represents the light intensity available in the scene and will give an indicator if some elements is too bright or dark. Watch this weeks video to get familiar with the topic

Rule of thirds

The rule of thirds is one of the first subjects you will meet when you search for photography tips and ways to improve. In this weeks episode I’m presenting the rule of thirds.

Aperture

The aperture is one of three parts in the exposure value equation. In this week’s video I present it a bit more.

Infrared photography

I’ve started to explore the possibilities with infrared photographies. Some subjects will be quite different, but others are almost equal to a normal black and white image. Infrared waterfalls are one of those subjects that are almost the same, but not quite the same still. The contrasts are a bit different. Especially the parts of the water that are transparent in normal vision will be almost black in infrared. It is really interesting to see the world through an infrared camera. You should try it once.

My first video

I’ve been wanting to create video content for a long time. I’ve done uncountable numbers of attempts but never been satisfied with the outcome. I guess I never really found a theme for them.

One evening an idea stuck and it resulted in a product that I’m quite happy with.

I’ve posted the video on YouTube and if you would like to follow me it would be great.

Black and white

During the winter, the colours turn more monochrome and many pictures also turn slight blue due to the snow reflecting the sky. Many cameras reads this wrong and end up setting the colours profile to cold.

One way to avoid this is to adjust the profile in your camera manually. An other way is to set the camera in black and white settings. If you have a mirrorless your electronic viewfinder will be black and white as well.

I’ve taken this to a new level by converting one of my cameras to infrared. I’ll give some more details of the actual work involved in a later post. Infrared is a light that the human eye don’t see. The image sensor of a camera is normally filtered to not see this light, but with a little surgery the camera can convert this light to something visible to the human eye. The result is a deep black and white image with a lot of contrasts and some unexpected contrasts.
