Arizona Digital Infrared Gallery

Updated 5/25/15

 The unseen infrared world is all around us. Here we are seeing nature in wavelengths beyond the normal range of human vision, a world where vegetation is bone white, skies are nearly black and colors as we see them do not exist. These images were taken with a 77mm Hoya R72 filter and our Canon 10D. Exposures are long, up to ten seconds at a speed of ISO400 because the camera was not designed to pick up infrared light. But time exposures often also reveal a different world as well, recording patterns and streaks of moving objects the eye does not sense. Here we present our growing gallery if IR images of Arizona for you to enjoy.
How the Color Images are done:
]This is the RAW image as it appears right out of the camera.
Next a custom white balance
is applied taken from an image
of the trees themselves. This
is done in the camera during 
the shooting of the scene.
The we do the "Famous" Red/
Blue channel swap.  This makes
the sky and water blue, but
leaves the trees white.
