kara has been bothering me to put up something a little more original. so i went out yesterday and took some infrared photos and colour photos, and stiched them together in photoshop. taken with my sony f828, hoya infrared filters and a couple ND filters on a tripod, 1/30th exposures, iso 64. i apologize for the long loading times, i just though some would be curious to see the combined image as well as the two untouched images.
today is the day we celebrate the sacrifice god made for us. today i put up a panoramic photo i took in 2006 of storm over a lake. showing the beauty of gods work. this is stitched together with 7 images in photoshop, and yes up north does get this bad (and gorgeous) of weather, my post-processing was actually fairly minimal.
ive posted quite a few images of this place. i take it from the same spot at the edge of a dock, i focus on the sun in the same location. the only thing that changes is time. looking back at all these photos in the summer and their wonderful sunsets and colour makes me so excited for t-shirt weather…
i remember shooting this almost 3 years ago with my sony f828. and i remember trying to light the reeds with my little on-board flash like i see in all the magazines. i have about 10 shots with the flash just lighting the front few feet before i got the clue i couldn’t achieve their effect without big lighting equipment.i still like this shot, even though it was shot in JPG so it was tough to properly level it.
this shot originally sat in my rejected bin…it was taken at the foot of the large rockway falls during the winter. i posted some photos of it earlier. i didn’t like the photo at first because it was wayyy too misty from the falls to clearly see anything. i was able to save a lot of the detail though with some quick processing. so here’s a tree frozen by the mist at the foot of rockway falls in southern ontaril.
two days ago, my friend Kara and I went photographing around Brickworks and the Don Valley Parkway in toronto. It was getting dark and cold so we didn’t get a chance to venture inside the closed factories but maybe next time. A huge shout out to my friend Braeden Vanrooy for lending me his sigma 10-22, for which this shot was taken with. Check his site out.
this is my first try with infrared on my new camera, and i must say it is a lot harder than my sony f828. each shot i had to manually focus, then add my hoya r72 infrared filter to the lens of my camera on a tripod, then expose for about 25 seconds. winter isn’t a very good time for infrared because of the lack of nice vegetation but i thought i’d experiment anyways.
this one relates to the last shot. i thought i’d document mikes shots from a differernt perspective. somehow he climbed down into the foot of the falls and then with hip-weights, got right into the stream to take some photos. i’m sure he’ll have some up on his website eventually www.msicoli.com.
