Maximizing the red for dramatic effect   Leave a comment

Mono Lake in California’s Eastern Sierra is one of the most heavily photographed bodies of water in the United States, and I wanted to do something different that has hopefully not been done by anyone else. This sunset on the lake was largely unremarkable. The sunlight remained essentially white the whole time, leaving not even a trace of warm tones. I decided to work with the red cast that is present in most infrared images, the result of the small amount of visible red light that is recorded before moving into the black and white that comprises the near infrared spectrum. This is the result. Camera was my Canon EOS 20D converted to 665nm enhanced color IR, with a 70-200 f2.8 L.
