This was taken along the Truckee River in Reno, Nevada in Infrared. The camera was a Canon converted to 590nm Super color and then converted to black & White.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken along the Truckee River, on the west side of Reno, Nevada. This was a fall picture, after a long hot summer, as you can see by the shallow water level, but the colors were beautiful.
Time
This is my favorite IR image by far. Wife and I went for a fall shoot and hike, to explore Oxbow Park here in Reno. I had only been there one other time in the winter, and things were pretty stark. It was taken on November 08, 2014 at 12:01pm, the dreadful high noon shooting time. The trees were in full color, but being this was the start of November, things can change very quickly here in Northern Nevada, with a frost or a severe windstorm. I've seen beautiful fall color trees go completely bare in as little as 24 hours. So when I have the opportunity to get out and shoot, time of day really doesn't stop me.
Lighting
As I said it was high noon, not the best time of day for optimal photography.
Equipment
This was shot by a Canon 60D camera converted to Infrared 590nm Super Color, the Conversion was done by Life Pixel. Many times I use a monopod, but this day everything we shot was handheld, because of the rocky terrain and brush. I used a 17-55mm wide angle lens, which works well on my infrared camera. I have better lens, but they tend to produce hot spots in your pictures at times. The 17-55mm is true and tested.
Inspiration
I got hooked on infrared photography about 3 or 4 years ago. I knew the river offered a vast array of different vegetation and would also have some great areas of reflections, even with the low water conditions. Not many towns have a river running through the middle town. The Truckee River is one of my favorite places to shoot.
Editing
Yes this photo is highly post-processed, as it starts out as a color raw shot, and was converted to black and white. All my photos both infrared and regular color, are shot using raw format. The main programs I use for post-processing are Zoner Photo Studio, Photoshop CS6, and Google Nik. I've used Zoner for years, starting with Version 10, and they are now at Version 18. It is and always will be my favorite, although Nik is another standard I'm using more and more.
In my camera bag
I don't carry a lot of extra stuff with me, except extra batteries, and extra lens if I think I might need it . If I'm traveling or shooting out of town, I'll drag along as much as I can...;0)
Feedback
Infrared photography is a bit more involved than regular photography, and has a bit of a learning curve, as most things do. I've always felt that if others can master a certain way of shooting, I can too. The first thing you will have to get, is a converted infrared camera, or have one of your spare cameras converted to IR. There are about 5 or 6 different conversions to can have done, but the Super Color 590nm is by far the most versatile. Images can be processed in many different ways, giving a completely different look and color to each one, Also they can to processed in black and white. Standard black & white IR turns everything green, like trees and bushes white in your photos. I would suggest anyone interest in IR photography check out a good IR conversion site, like Life Pixel. They will have great detailed explanations and photos of what is available in infrared.
