Three images done today with a re-purposed Nikon D200 converted to a deep black and white infrared camera using a 850nm filter. This filter blocks out most visible light thus creating images in the infrared spectrum. The more an object absorbs heat from the sun, the whiter it is. The conversion by Isaac Szabo was affordable and he provided quick service. Enjoy, Jeff

I found this lovely young woman at a local Greek Festival today. She was working there and agreed to let me take her portrait. Simply used this large window for soft light, exposed off her upper chest area for a balanced exposure. Shot with a Fuji X-PRO1, Fujinon 18--55mm lens at 55mm, F4, ISO 400 at 200th sec. First image shot in Sepia, second in Provia Film Mode. Enjoy, Jeff

The tulips are in full bloom now in Washington Park here in Albany. I have taken at least 500 tulip shots over the years. Those are pretty much standard flower shots. Pretty but not dramatic. The other day I realized that I could combine iPhone control with my Nikon D7200 and a Rokinon 12mm Fisheye for something very different.
I found a nice tulip bed in the shade after work today, placed a small rubber mat on the ground, prefocused the set up for hyperlocal at f11 and .2 feet, Shutter was 1/200 sec. Using my iPhone Nikon WMU App, I fired the shutter and with the help of my little friends, who with Dad's permission, stepped into the scene.
A little editing and "I Love This Shot" result!
