WASHINGTON CONNECTICUT – More infrared so watch out for gimmicks. On the golf course today with my Leica Monochrom, 35mm lens and infrared filter. It was a sunny day so this produced an extreme infrared effect with a black sky and white foliage. As noted yesterday the effect is more subtle in the winter so I usually don’t shoot infrared this time of year – but I’m checking to see how this works with my Monochrom. This requires extremely high ISO – this image was taken at 5000. This results in a good bit of digital grain which can be minimized by processing – particularly by downsizing the image. This is three frames stitched:
