Location:Riverside, Brisbane City
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:I went in search of water, and found water. It was very windy so the water fountains were blowing everywhere. I set a custom white-balance using some foliage.
I forgot my cable release so maximum exposure was 30 seconds at ISO 1600, though I would have preferred a lower ISO and longer exposure.
I'm still waiting for the clouds to go away so I can take a shot with black (blue) sky.
The camera & lens:Filters: Near-infrared (580nm)
The GIMP -
- Colour->Components->channel-mixer: Red channel has red +55 and blue +100, green channel has green +100 (no change), and blue channel has red +100.
- Slight crop
- Curves: Lights +25, darks -25, shadows -50
- Fill light +10, blacks +20
- Noise reduction: Luminance +100, contrast +100, colour +100
- Vignette -30
The wash-up:Other IR photos - other parts of the water feature, and one of a flower that just sucked (the photo that is).
