Oregon Garden in IR

1

I visited the Oregon Garden last weekend and brought my IR camera along with my “regular” DSLR. Although packing around two cameras was a bit of a hassle, I’m glad that I did. Here are four example photos from several dozen IR images I took on Saturday.

This image is of the Rain Curtain in the Sensory Garden. This is processed by setting the white-balance so the trees are neutral and swapping the red and blue channels then changing the hue of all the elements that are not sky or neutral.

This image is of the grape/hop arbor in the Silverton Market Garden. I really like this shot – it’s very recognizable as a grape arbor and yet looks nothing like the visible-light images. This images is processed by simply setting the white-balance so that the sky is neutral grey.

Photograph of the water feature in the Silverton Market Garden. This is processed by setting the white-balance so that the sky is neutral grey and then rotating the hue until the trees are pink. I also added a light blue photo filter over the whole image.

Now, here is a guy I found meandering through the Conifer Garden. This just reminds me so much of a Jim Henson character and looks to me like he is wandering through a forest visiting his friends. This photo has no color adjustments or processing other then some added contrast.

    That is freaking awesome. I do carry my IR filter, but that greatly limits as the exposure time is too high on a 450D. Carrying two cameras was definitely worth it ! love the shots
