IR Dreamin’

Los Oso Oaks State Reserve is one of the first places I spent time shooting in IR (infrared) and it remains one of my favorite. It’s a spooky place if you’re in there by yourself because the trees literally envelop you but also enchanting. I’ve been several times but have hundred of images I’ve never processed! Here’s one of them. Contrast added with Topaz filters. (Captured with converted Canon D60 and 15mm lens (2004)


A mirrored image from Los Osos Oaks Reserve gives a good sense of what this place is like. Through most of the park, you’re walking under a canopy of Oak branches. It’s a bit spooky at times but so much fun for a photographer that you can’t resist moving on.


An infrared image from Los Osos Oaks Reserve in California. It was captured in 2004 at a workshop with a borrowed Canon 15mm lens. Because of the crop factor of the D60, there was almost no distortion. I ordered the lens right then and there 🙂
