More Infrared Newbie Foveon Nonsense.

Post title says it all. Already wrote a long-winded post about my first experiences. Here are some additional samples taken over the last couple of days.

Nothing fancy. Just random shots of scenes seen. But the fact that this solution has made casual Infrared photography accessible is a bit amazing. All for the low $24 cost of an Infrared pass/Visible light cut filter. More details in the post linked in the previous paragraph.

Nice.

Infrared - SIGMA sd Quattro - 30mm f/1.4 Art

I went into this Infrared experiment unsure of the outcome. Had feared that it would be a brief trial before moving back to visible light photography, but I really like the different look. Likely also helps that I really like black and white photography and this is a very interesting option. I find the whites of the foliage, the darks of plastic and asphalt, and the glow of many other objects to be fascinating. While I am sure I will convert the sd Quattro back to regular photography soon, I can also say that I definitely will be using Infrared again in the future. The fact that SIGMA makes it easy to switch back and forth between the two is much appreciated. I already really like the camera, and this is yet another feather in the SIGMA sd Quattro’s cap.
