Thank you for letting me play with your camera.
Always chasing the different look, I attempt to see familiar scenes with different eyes. In photography there are a number of approaches that can give your image a fresh look. Visit a particular location at different times, in all seasons, change your viewpoint, take your images with different lenses, vary your settings… Now, an infrared camera gives you a whole new set of eyes. Instead of the visible spectrum, you see the world according to its temperature. To make this world visible to our eyes, magic electronics convert heat into gray tones or false colors. Jim’s camera does the gray scale conversion and boy does it do a great job.
What’s your way to keep a fresh look on things in photography (and real life)?
