Caffeine and Octane – 7-6-14 – In Infrared

Notes: Running out of ideas to shoot at the increasingly more crowded car show this month, so dusted off the infrared Sigma.  Black and white conversions with a Nikon Red filter as usual.  While it is fun to see the expensive and exotic machinery, I think it’s better as a social commentary about the relative […]

MomoCon 2014

Portraits from this year’s great event. Most of the images with my “alternative” gear!

N.O.La.

Going through some old photos, figuring out what to do.  These are images from when I would stroll through New Orleans with an IR Sigma.

Location Scouting: Water Museum

Notes: Used the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center on many occasions, but always good to revisit with a different angle.  One of my goals is to record places for future reference, either for model shoots, or spots that might have cinematic or storytelling appeal.  Plus it gives me a chance to do purely composition based […]

Sacred Heart

Notes: Helped out a friend on a pre wedding test shoot at Sacred Heart Cultural Center in Augusta.  Place was massive and definitely a visual and architectural delight.  In going through images to post, I normally cull the ones that fit the theme that I was trying to go for.  For this one, the natural […]

Samurai Showdown

Notes: Can’t recall ever using IR on the waterfalls so I thought I would give it a shot, mixed in with some fake Samurai Showdown action.  Kids, don’t try this at home, the rocks are slippery, and boy was it cold in that water.  The wide angle forced perspective also makes the falls look tiny, […]

Màu Hồng

Notes:  There’s this tree on the side of the road I frequently drive on, and it sure is pretty every single spring.  Lots of gear for this spur of the moment shoot (for me at least), Nikon+Canon, Sigma IR, and different techniques as well, Nikon wireless CLS, radio triggered strobe, and the heat reflector you […]

Snow and Ice

Notes: Some of these photos are actually from the last time it snowed, a bit more picturesque a few weeks ago.

32°

Notes: It snowed in the ATL on Christmas, so of course I had to step outside. Thanks to KT for putting up with the bitter cold just so I could shoot and then write about it. If you guys have been following for the last several posts I’ve pretty much been trying to give a […]

Dragon*Con in Infrared

Notes: Didn’t get to shoot much of the parade in IR due to me forgetting to charge the battery…but what I did get sure was creepy looking… 😈

Atlanta Photo Meetup: 57th Fighter’s Group II

Fun meetup at the 57th Fighter’s Group, a restaurant/bunker with lots of army and airplane props, and the Dekalb county airport in the background.  Here are the shots I got out of the craziness.  Thanks to Eric and the Atlanta Photo/Model meetup group for organizing, and thanks to Nhi, Brittany, and Breanna for coming out.  3 different cameras […]

Lao New Year 2553: Wat Lao Riverdale

Tech Notes: 24-105mm IS on the Canon, 70-200 VR on the Nikon, and infrared Sigma.  Great combo.  Maybe since I’ve been playing Final Fantasy XIII so much, with its 3 person fighting structure, figuring out tools for the bag is like setting up your characters for a battle.  Cars and cameras are similar and oddly enough cameras are […]

Lindsey

Misc Notes: Water museum with oddly no water and Mall of Georgia, whatever’s close by.  Too cold to get into a groove, but the manual focusing is getting better… 🙂 Used Silkypix for the mkII raws, and there isn’t much under the hood of those .cr2’s, at least not as much as what I believe can […]

Photos: LLB

Notes: …was ridiculously cold and sleeting during the shoot, thanks for being a trooper!

Photos: Oakland Cemetery in IR

Notes: Thanks to the Atlanta Model/Photo Meetup group, and of course Oakland Cemetery for allowing us to disturb this hallowed ground.  Apologies to the phantoms and spirits roaming around with all the clicking and stomping.  Infrared photos of Atlanta’s most famous cemetery, with a Sigma SD14 and 10-20mm.  For every 5 shots that other cameras get […]

Photos: Oak Alley Plantation

  Notes: Oak Alley Plantation near Baton Rouge, Baby ‘Bel and her baby Holga. 😀   Lovely place, but full of gnats and mosquitoes.  Man, it was sweltering that day…

New Orleans: IR and Black and White

    Technical Notes: Got a hang somewhat of processing the SD14 RAW files for false color infrared photos.  All these random images are just from my photo walks or bike rides through New Orleans with the Sigma sans IR filter, which is turning out to be a heck of a little “ghost cam.”  Again, the quirks […]
