Behind The Lens

This image was made at Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains. It is a 7 exposure HDR Infrared image made with a Super Color converted Canon 7DMKII, converted by Life Pixel.
This image was made on 05/19/2015 at 1:59pm
The face of the horse in the foreground was in the shade, and the only way to make this work was to do multiple exposures. This was shot at f6.3, at 1/250, 1/1000,1/640,1/400, 1/160, 1/100, 1/60 sec. The before and after can bee seen here http://goo.gl/gRZmM3
The camera is a Canon 7DMKII, converted to Super Color Infrared (590nm) by Life Pixel. The lens was a Canon 18-135 f3.5-5.6 IS at 18mm. The camera was given a Custom White Balance using grass as a white balance reference. Because this was a spontaneous shot, there was no time to set up a tripod, so I braced myself against a fence post and shot the 7 exposures using AEB, auto exposure bracketing.
The views in the Great Smoky Mountains are amazing, and when the horse got so close and held still I knew this would make an interesting perspective, if I could get it at the right angle. This image is part of a series used in a Blog about the Great Smoky Mountains in Infrared. http://www.lifepixel.com/blog/great-smoky-mountains
This was processed in Photoshop CS6, using NIK HDR Efex Pro2 and NIK Color Efex Pro4. The Red and Blue color channels were swapped.
In my camera bag
I normally have two camera, both Canon 7DMKIIs, one converted to Infrared, one in color. Lenses, Tamron SP AF 10-24mm f / 3.5-4.5 DI II, Canon 18-135 f3.5-5.6 IS, Canon 40mm f2.8 STM, Canon 24mm f2.8 STM, Canon 50mm f1.8, and a small tripod.
If you are going to try HDR, a tripod is always better. For Infrared, you will need a converted camera, and the best camera conversion company is Life Pixel. The trick to shooting animals is be slow and cautious.
