Covered Bridge & Bike/Walking Trail

After a rather long lapse in doing some Infrared Photography, I decided to give it a try again with some new knowledge that I read about earlier. Infrared Photography or IR, as it’s called has been something that I do like to do. When you have the settings right on the camera, the Image you take looks much different than what your eyes will see.

To get these Images, I use a sturdy Tripod & a Hoya R72 720nm screw on filter. Since you can’t see anything with the IR filter on, you have to compose your shot before screwing on the filter making sure that you have adjusted the focus to be clear in the view finder. Use a Remote Shutter and keep the aperture open for about 30 sec. It takes the camera a few seconds to process the Image. There is one thing that I just can’t seem to get right and that is having a Blue Sky. I found I don’t have the right post processing software, but I will very soon. Here, using Lightroom CC, I colored in the sky color. It’s not right, but darn close.

There is no doubt that for these you must use a Tripod, unless you can hold a camera perfectly steady for a long period of time. I don’t know of many people that can do that. I also realize that there are not many people that like shooting IR, but it’s something that I enjoy doing when the weather is nice a sunny. Hope you like my work.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.


  1. I always enjoy looking at IR photographs, though I’ve never experimented in the genre. The photo of the mill and the photo of the walking trail/bridge both look like winter scenes because the grass looks white. I especially like how the mill image turned out. Painting that sky in a different tint really adds to the image. Nice work!
