When I think of woodland photography, I tend to think of soft pastel colours and trees shrouded in a thin veil of mist in Autumn. But having recently been bitten (I think this is the fourth time) by the infrared bug, I’m finding the recent sunny days we are enjoying perfect.
I took this shot yesterday whilst out walking along the canal near to home. The woodland here is extremely limited but when the conditions are right, and you are shooting in infrared, it takes on a new beauty.
The image is a handheld exposure using my recently converted infrared Fuji X-T2. I used the Fuji 18-135 which appears to be a particularly good lens for using with an infrared camera. It doesn’t suffer from sever hot spots like a few of the other Fuji lenses do. The exposure was handheld at 1/40” at f/11.0 and ISO400.
For the processing, I made the conversion to black and white using Exposure X5. If you would like to know more about how I do this, I’ve published an article describing my typical workflow for infrared images.
I hope you like the image and have a great weekend.
