Color infered photography.

While on a job Tuesday, I came across this and had to photograph it.
This window is dressed with some sort of mechanical shade that darkens the room to allow you to view projections. The best part is that it also allows you to still look out the window. (Built special for day dreamers like me?)
How cool is that! I see the old smoke stack and the years of billowing smoke that darkened the atmosphere.

Same scene as yesterday.
Yesterday's image was processed from a RAW file, this came from a jepg. Since I still don't know how to get the color I want from the RAW image, I converted it to a grey scale image. For the color version I followed the basic instructions and proceeded from there.
I know there's more inferred light in the summer months and that my results will look different then, I just need to fool around with it.

This is an inferred photo the Peconic River that almost there! Looks ok this size but it's lacking sharpness and there's more noise that I'm comfortable with. But I'm getting there. Tomorrow I'll post the color version.

A bayman emptying pots in Shinnecock Bay.
It was a beautiful day Monday, maybe in the forties. Still there's no place to get out of the wind.
My interest in baymen go back a number of years. I started documenting them and everything about them one cold November day when I saw a scene similar to this in Captree Bay. It was frigid that day and I couldn't stand being out on the car for as long as it took to expose eight or so frames of film. He was long raking for clams, probably for the holiday season.
I sent the collection around to publishers, but there was no interest. I still think there's a niche market, I did alright with print sales at shows, and a book would sell for a lot less that the price of a hand printed fiber print.
I should give self publishing a serious consideration.
Here's two photos I've posted before, scanned from the series.

Whenever I go for a walk, I have my camera. I'm amazed at how much litter I come across. I am a little embarrassed to say that Long Island is about the worst place I've ever seen when it comes to litter. We have a five cent deposit law on carbonated drink, beer and water containers. It doesn't seem to help. Go figure. Sometime last year I decided to put together a collage of cans that I found.

This is a beach dune photographed with an old Canon 20D that's been converted to an inferred camera. I was too cold to take a walk down the beach, so I exposed 6 or 8 frames and went off to work. I'm still learning how to adjust the files to make something interesting.

The past two days have been frigid. I was at the ocean today, but only was able to walk along the shore line for a short period of time. I made some images with a Canon 20D that was converted to an inferred camera. Maybe I'll post one of those photos tomorrow. I'm still learning how to process the image. This photo was made earlier in the week, when the temperature was a bit more friendly.

I made this photo yesterday right before yesterday's post. This view looking north, made me pull off the highway to get the shot.
But after I saw the foreground and moon, I liked yesterday's post photo better. I worked both images in Photoshop and Photomatix Pro to enhance the color and make the trails pop!
