Just like fishing, sometimes you just have to go!   Leave a comment

We don’t get many skies like this in Bakersfield, so when a day like this comes along, you just have to go shooting. Reminds me of the old fishing days; when the bass were biting, you had to make a trip, no matter what else was pressing. This is the result of a couple of hours driving around my neighborhood with my favorite IR photography setup: my Honda scooter and my Canon EOS 20D converted to 665nm enhanced color IR, with a Canon 20mm f2.8 and a Tiffen circular polarizer. Another example of great black and white IR results that can be achieved even at 665nm. And another important note: There is much discussion on the web about “hot spots” with converted cameras and certain lenses. Several sites list the 20mm as a lens to avoid because of this phenomenon. My lens performs flawlessly, with no hot spot.
