One thing I've often thought about is how to shoot images while the light is not optimal. Why shoot then you ask? That is when life is happening. If you are on vacation with the family you can't always get to where you might like when you like. One other thing is the places you want to see are often closed during the magic hours of the day. So we need to be able to get really good images even when the light isn't perfect. OK, so that was a really long explanation for what I want to talk about in this post. Infrared Photography.
By shooting with an infrared modified camera you can get some pretty amazing surreal shots even when the light isn't great. In fact I quite like the way it lights up the plants and pushes the skies dark. So Pretty simple, Shoot infrared. Often time you can convert to black and white to help you out in harsh lit situations as well.

I have been completely captivated with the wonderful sculpted clouds that have been decorating our skies these last several weeks. This day was like many of these with wonderful clouds up in the air. I have been wanting to shoot Oquirrh Mountain Temple in the evening with the sun behind it for a while. When I setup my tripod I soon realized the clouds were actually going to be somewhat of a problem, they were really moving! Why is this a problem you ask? I am shooting HDR imagery which means you have to take several images back to back with different exposures and then combine them into one. This process is trickier when things are moving such as clouds etc. My Idaho Falls shoot was much the same. On the up side, with the clouds moving so rapidly, you just had to wait five minutes if something wasn't right in the sky to get the next shot.
What's next for me? I have been wanting to get up north to Brigham City, Bountiful, maybe Logan. I'm also planning another walk around the Salt Lake Temple.
