Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at Marilyn Pond, in Reno, Nevada. Marilyn Pond is located in Galena Park, just a short distance from where I live. It's a great spot for hiking, with the pond for fishing, and also seeing Galena Creek which runs through it. You may get lucky as bears use the pond for fishing, and drinking at times.
Time
This was taken in the early spring around 9 or 10 am, about 2 years ago. It was a bit on the chilly side, and required wearing a jacket, as it about 6000 feet in altitude. The exact day and date were lost when I had 2 external hard drives crash, within two days of one another, and lost both the raw and jpg original photos of this shot. I also lost a few thousand other photos that day too. I was able to retrieve this shot from another sight that I had posted it on, but not the originals with all the meta data.
Lighting
This was a fairly bright sunny day, with a few clouds in the sky. I love to shoot when there are great clouds, they always add so much to the overall photo.
Equipment
Since this is an infrared shot, it was taken with a converted Canon 60D Camera, converted to Super Color 590nm. This is one of two different cameras I have converted to infrared. I used Canon EF-S 17- 55mm 2.8 IS USM lens. I also have a Canon 7D converted to 720nm infrared, better known as standard infrared.
Inspiration
I love this area for photography, as there is a lot of wildlife around the pond and creek, and you never know what you might run into. With all the bushes, trees, and other green vegetation around, it makes it a great spot for infrared photography. In infrared, with the right white balance, greens come out looking white, which gives you an whole new way to look at nature. This is one of the things that drew me into infrared photography.
Editing
Just about all infrared photos need some degree of processing. All my photos both infrared and regular, are shot using the raw format, and processed from there. There are many ways to post process infrared shots, way too many to describe them in this small area. It all depends on what you like your finished infrared shot to look like. The main programs I use for post processing are Zoner Photo Studio, Photoshop CS6, and Google Nik. I've used Zoner for many years over many different upgraded versions of it, and it has always been my number one favorite. Although Google Nik is another standard I'm using more and more.
In my camera bag
Shooting local, I usually carry the bare minimum, extra batteries are must, a good lens brush, since I shoot both infrared and regular I will also take both cameras, I usually put the opposite lens of what I'm using on the second camera. This way I can use them on either camera. I have several telephoto lens that I use, all depends on the area I'm shooting as to which lens I take with me. If I'm traveling and I have the room I tend to take most of what I own...;0).
Feedback
Infrared photography is a bit more involved than regular photography, and has a bit of a learning curve, as most worth while things do. I've always felt that if others can master and learn a certain way of shooting, so can I. As with anything, it just takes time and practice. The first thing you will need to get is a converted infrared camera, or have a spare camera you own converted to infrared. There are about 5 or 6 different IR conversion that you 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. Photos can also be converted to black and white if desired. I would suggest anyone interested in IR photography to check out a good IR conversion site like Life Pixel. There are others, and they will have great detailed explanations and photos of what is available in Infrared. If you have any other questions you can also contact me through Viewbug, and I'll be glad to help you anyway I can.
