January '14 - Please NUMBER and post your pics of the month here
Some family members decided to take the train to San Diego so this was a nice opportunity for some train practice shots. Used the 5D-C since it was along. Wish it had higher fps and better write capabilities. Filled the buffer so it ceased to fire just as the train came into a good spot.

IR type shots have fascinated me. What is involved in this shot...details?
pretty simple really.
1. get an IR filter
2. do some long exposure shots on sunny days...and you will get a RED picture
3. correct for WB in photoshop
4. mix the colors by using the Channel Mixer
5. Edit to taste
I used the HOYA R72 filter for this but I'm not sure why I'm getting a hot spot in the center of the image. My guess is that since I used a step up filter there's more glare?? anyone more knowledgeable with optics can sort this out for me?
But anyways, yes this was a really fun experiment. Hardly something I'm proud of just yet. I'm just pretty stoked I managed to get the effects somehow right.
I've been shooting with the 5D-C lately and had forgotten how the 5D-III can be in use. I had originally wanted to get some shots at X-mas time when it is decorated and illuminated in festive colors. Didn't happen. So I wandered over today and snapped a few off. Was disappointing to see how worn the fountains have become over the years.
One of the few times I would venture out mid-day. The shadows work well except for the fountain where the building shadow makes the exposure more challenging. What i wanted to shoot were the dolphin statues but that fountain was under maintenance.
