#SeeingRedSeries A city worker taking a break from mowing the lawns around Lakeshore Dr bike path. This was a very cold day with clear skies and limited humidity, meaning no haze, meaning deep blue sky, meaning black sky at 590nm spectrum. That tree glow is amazing
#SeeingRedSeries Another late-winter take of John Hancock, showing off its tubular system of X-braces, pioneered by Bangladeshi-born civil engineer Fazlur Khan in the 60's. Here very nicely superimposed and framed by trees. Of course, since this is an infrared photo, the budding leaves are gorgeously glowing in mid-day sun.
#SeeingRedSeries Half frozen, half snowed over, a quiet place to hike, to ruminate and to enjoy a day off work. Infrared 590 nm supercolor filter post processed in Luminar, with standard channel swap, showing yellow colors of the trees and conifers with deep blue sky so typical for this filter.
#SeeingRedSeries Calm waters is sometimes all what is needed. No extra lenses, no tripod, no backpack, no filters, no gear. Just point, shoot, move on. Less is more. Infrared
#SeeingRedSeries Standing atop Frost Hill among the conifers, frozen toes, hungry, waiting for the sun to come through a crack in the clouds. It eventually did, for about 30 seconds, enough to get this IR shot. You can see how tiny that sliver was where the trees on the left side of the picture got... Continue Reading →
#SeeingRedSeries The Bobolink Meadow is vast and with great views. Lot's of bird houses scattered all around, in birdwatching is your thing. Infrared 590nm supercolor with channel standard swap.
#SeeingRedSeries Sterling Pond on a quiet morning. The strip of blue sky was short-lived. Soon after this shot, the two massive clouds merged and sun was gone, which in infrared photography is a subtle message saying: "Go home!".
#SeeingRedSeries Willoway Brook with Schulenberg Prairie out in the distance. Infrared shot with 590nm supercolor filter and converted into B&W in Luminar
#SeeingRedSeries West Loop at the Arboretum, near P24 looking east. Infrared with standard channel swap.
#SeeingRedSeries Definitely visiting this place in the summer. The bench is right next to the Sterling Pond's dam, overlooking the artificial lake's waters. Must be awesome when the tree canopies are full. Infrared post processed into B&W in Luminar.
#SeeingRedSeries Hiking through the woods and found a great serene spot for tree/landscape photography. As I kept shooting, eyes glued to the viewfinder, a lady on snow shoes unexpectedly waltzed right into the scene. Score! A great view got even better. Shot in IR and post processed with standard channel swap with supercolor 590 nm... Continue Reading →
#SeeingRedSeries I took a picture from the exact same spot 15 years ago using a film camera, also after a snow storm. Revisiting the composition again, this time in infrared. So interesting that the trees are leaning sideways even more than back then. This is one of my most favorite places to shoot in winter.... Continue Reading →
