The May 2023 #CameraChallenge: A Day in Aveiro

After several false starts I finally got to Aveiro last week for the May 2023 #CameraChallenge on Twitter. The previous day I had a plan and a camera to execute that plan, then at the last minute I changed my mind and went in a completely different direction. The theme for this month is architecture,Continue reading “The May 2023 #CameraChallenge: A Day in Aveiro”

The May 2023 #CameraChallenge: Architecture in Oiã

Since the results of the#CameraChallenge Will not be posted until next week, I thought it would be a good excuse to spend a bit of time recording the architecture of Oiã.  I headed to a few buildings around the railway station as I thought it would really benefit from the infrared treatment, particularly digital aerochromes,Continue reading “The May 2023 #CameraChallenge: Architecture in Oiã”

Mid-week Monochrome, #126, 19 April 2023

I don’t often have the opportunity to participate in the Mid-week Monochrome challenge but today I was out with the Gameboy and came across this wonderful lonely tree that was just begging for some infrared loving. Taken with a Samsung A70 smartphone and a Hoya 720nm Infrared filter.

Checking out the infrared capability of the Nikon Coolpix 990, 25 November 2022

I’ve been suffering from GAS again. This time it’s this unusual looking camera, the Nikon Coolpix 990 from 2000. I actually wanted the first of this range of cameras, the 900, for the #ShittyCameraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge but I couldn’t find it. So this one will have to do (and I’m actually very happy with it). OfContinue reading “Checking out the infrared capability of the Nikon Coolpix 990, 25 November 2022”

A trip through the woods, 23 August 2022

After weeks of cloudless skies, this morning we awoke to a sky full of wispy cirrus clouds. It was the perfect weather to take out the full spectrum Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 and the Urth 720nm Infrared filter, on our daily walk to the beach.

Finally the wind died down, 30 July 2022

After a few frustrating days, the wind died down and my plan to take the full spectrum Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 and the Urth 720nm Infrared filter to the beach was a possibility.  Thankfully, the early afternoon sun made the trees glow in the sunlight and the photographs of our walk to the beach exceeded myContinue reading “Finally the wind died down, 30 July 2022”

Late afternoon in the woods, 26 July 2022

The original plan was to take the full spectrum Lumix and the Urth 720nm Infrared filter to the beach, but it was so windy I didn’t want to take any risks with the camera, I’ve already cleaned out one large grain of sand from the sensor and I didn’t want to go through that experienceContinue reading “Late afternoon in the woods, 26 July 2022”

Infrared cloudscapes, 04 June 2022

Between rainstorms I took the opportunity to take some rubbish to the bin (here there are large communal bins rather than individual bins for each house) and noticed clouds behind the neighbours’ orchard.  I grabbed a quick photo on my phone but just knew it would be a treat in infrared.  I took a fewContinue reading “Infrared cloudscapes, 04 June 2022”
