I am pretty comfortable doing what I do. A lot of folks feel the need to break out and try all sorts of things to get out of a rut or feel like they are growing or build their expression into new forms. I admire that, but I have a certain way of seeing and capturing nature and pretty much will stay the course. That said, I did pick up a Hoya R72 filter to do some Infrared shooting. I don’t think I will use it for IR color and the interesting effects it creates but I believe it will be fun to try some black and white images in that mode.
For my first try at it I went to Quabbin Hill and shot the tower. It’s not exactly what I was thinking but close enough. More to come I am sure.
When I posted this on Facebook, Jim asked to see a comparison of a straight black and white conversion. Of course, the image is quite red when using the filter, so I have to compare with a color shot converted to monochrome.The light had changed just a bit. I prefer the light and shadow play on the foreground grasses of the first image
