Living In An Infrared World
Last Saturday I received the Canon 6D with the Infrared modification from LensRentals.com. I was supposed to get it Monday, but I think with the holiday that they shipped it early. If you are not renting from LensRentals then you should be. They are speedy, and they have great customer service. I made some photos with it at the first football game that day, but I put it down when I was shooting the teams that I was assigned to cover. The little that I used it Saturday gave me a good feel for what I needed to think about when shooting with it. To get an image that really pops you have to shoot a little different. The results can be quite nice though. I went down the road to a familiar barn to try it out a bit today. I really liked how it made the photos look a little old school. Not everything that I thought would work did, but enough that I have a few posts down the road that I can make.
Using the Infrared for Basketball
I am toying with the idea of shooting the Purdue game tonight with nothing but the infrared camera. I think that it could be interesting, and a little something different. It also kind of equalizes both teams color wise. I am sure that you will see a post tomorrow showing an infrared basketball scene.
