Beyond Red

I managed to get out with the infra red camera on Saturday morning. The sun was shining when I left the house and I managed to follow the clear skies around until I found a suitable location.

I’m still learning how to use the camera and the differences that infra red sensitivity requires in the taking process. For example, flare in the lens is far more pronounced as the anti-reflection coatings on the lens glass don’t work so well for longer wavelengths of light. It’s hard to judge the correct exposure when reviewing the image on the display. The Fuji S3 has a small LCD. I’ve been shooting with .jpgs but it would be easier to shoot RAW and have more latitude for adjustment on the PC. The camera can’t adjust the colour temperature enough to compensate for the infra red filter so all colour adjustments must be made at home.

Nevertheless, I’m pleased with the results so far.
