Location:Ebbw Vale, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:This is a lovely huge flame tree outside the train station at Ebbw Vale. Of course, in infrared, you can't see the firey colours.
I think I'm going to put the R72 filter away for a while and instead spend some time reading up on what looks good. I'm having some trouble stepping away from the colourful world.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Filters: Near-infrared (580nm)
Exposure: 60/1" @ f/13/1, ISO 1600
- Custom white-balance picked from one of the leaves on the tree
- Curves: lights +100, darks +80, shadows -30
- Saturation -25
- Graduated filter diagonally across the entire photo, to lighten the bottom right hand side through to the centre (exposure +1 stop) (otherwise this area was quite dark and unsettling)
- Noise reduction: luminance +50
- Vignette: -20
The wash-up:Different angles, but otherwise that's it for today.
