Featured Monthly Photo – October 2010 – Amtrak train (infrared)
Image above made with a Nikon D200 IR-converted camera and Nikon 18-200 VR lens
The above photo was taken towards the end of Scott Kelby’s 2009 Worldwide Photowalk in Fredericksburg, VA. Our walk leader, Rachel, had chosen a route filled with fantastic photo opportunities and although I had my color camera with me, I had decided to do the main part of the photowalk in infrared; I was pleased with the images that I captured.
Here I used the LCH tool in Nik Software’s Capture NX2 as my infrared “channel mixer” and saved as a TIFF file. Then I opened the file in Photoshop Elements and used the Cross Balance Filter from Nik Software’s Color Efex Pro to give it that vintage (antique) look.
Let me know what you think…
