House at Bond Lake


Another IR from Bond Lake.
Just an ordinary cottage but the IR R72 filter and mono processing transform this one giving it an ethereal, dreamy feel.

Re: House at Bond Lake


This image confuses me, almost as though the house is a positive and the rest is a negative.

You confuse easily, Norman. emoticon
That's mono IR photography, foliage is white, blue sky goes dark.

Re: House at Bond Lake


I do understand the way that IR photography works and many of the images I have seen fall into place but this one doesn't seem to. As I understand things the purpose is to show an image seen in another light other than normal white light so, in a way, giving an impression of what is there. Would it be possible to take the process a further step along the path of impressionism or would this not work well in black & white?

Re: House at Bond Lake


You are correct, Norman. With most of my mono images - whether they be IR or not - I apply a measure of impressionism to reflect my vision at the time of shooting the scene. If I were to simply shoot strictly for the purpose of documentation, my images would look different and very uninteresting to say the least.

Re: House at Bond Lake


The r72 is not a full IR filter, to get what Norman talks about ones needs to be 830nm and over, these block all normal wave lengths and are pure IR, I think the mixture of a touch of normal plus the rest IR gives us a step from reality that looks great

True, Martin, but even when using the filter, the same end 830nm effect can be achieved in the post processing stage.

Re: House at Bond Lake


I missed this one somehow. For me, IR photography only really works with certain subjects and certain lighting (I may be wrong about the lighting aspect) and this is one of those that does work. I really do like what you've done with the place Steven.

Thanks, Steve, I think this one is a bit over cooked with too much blur but you get the idea. emoticon
