    One Day, Two Photographers (Jack + Uwe)

    Jack and I had a nice day shooting South of Hollister. We both want to show what we got during this wonderful day (was great independent of the resulting photos).

    I kick it off and Jack plans to chime in. Over the next day we then add more and more pictures.

    The first 5 photos show about the variety of scenes we captured.

    IR fun (5D IR)



    Victorian Ranch House (5D2)



    Donkey (1D4)



    Car Graveyard (5D2)

    Here are a few very quickly processed on my laptop IR's. I may need to rework some when I see them on my big monitor. All of this batch from the GF1-IR:

    Uwe and Jack great stuff.

    Jack - oh crap I was hoping my GF1 would be here for the weekend. I didn't really mind when I was scheduled to be in NY but now that I'm here, I want it now. Were you using an additional filter on the lens?

    Now that I'll be in town over the holiday weekend, I'm going to head down that way. Any location suggestions are welcome.

    Here are a few from the P65+, also quickly processed on my laptop. You can see how lush the fresh grass was, which is also why it went white in the IR's above:

    Hi Terry,

    No additional filter, this was straight out of the modified GF1. The first 4 are converted to B&W in CS4, the last one is false-color desaturated by about 25 points.

    thanks Uwe. I really like your Car Graveyard -- great perspective! I definitely need to go back there and spend more time shooting those dead cars!

    Re: One Day, Two Photographers (Jack + Uwe)

    FYI we have at least 4 GF1's that are going to be on the workshop in the Salton Sea. Jack , Guy, Bob and Terry will all have one on hand. This should be a blast

    Ben you can have them converted by Precision Camera in Connecticut for around 250 dollars. I'm waiting for mine to get here.

    Right now as I speak here in the Desert from all the heavy rains the Desert is starting to get very green which makes for excellent IR images and the wildflowers should hit in full bloom by the time we get to the workshop. Not sure we could have timed this workshop any better. We call Jack farmer almanac, he just nails it every time for shooting times.

    This is beautiful country and you two have some wonderful images from there. The car graveyard is such a strange thing, love the hillsides--they are wonderful in color, mono or IR/mono.

    Just curious, from an easterner, where approx is this area in CA?

    Edit: DOH!! "South of Hollister"--just need to locate it LOL. Was it down along highway 25?

    Don't jinx me Bud! Seriously though, it IS looking very, very promising for our Salton Sea workshop. On this drive yesterday the mustard and pixies were just starting to bloom on the hillsides. As soon as I got South of the King City parallel, I noticed a smattering of fresh poppy clusters and some fresh lupine clusters. This is early for poppies, so I am very optimistic about both our timing and the quality of the desert bloom this year .

    PS: Shameless self-promotion, but we do have one spot left for the workshop! http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12754

    That sounds like a great idea. Give me you phone number in a PM and I'll call you as I make my way from Barstow. Hollister has been a place I've wanted to visit for a long time.

    I'll be in a very dirty 4dr Jeep Red Rubicon and am slightly taller than Jack.

    I didn't want to bother doing a project which is replicated by a guy who personally I believe is a much better photographer than myself (http://www.seasonsofthemoon.com/default.aspx).

    The colour however of that IR conversion, not the swapped colour, just the regular straight hugely muted and undersaturated tones, I'm thinking of the train track image. That I could do without replicating. The noise doesn't even bother me, grain and IR kinda go together.

    How are you finding focus accuracy Jack?

    Knowing that Guy goes through cameras about as fast as it takes me to eat a good meal - Guy (or Jack) when you're fed up with your IR GF-1's, I'm interested, seriously interested. When you sell it to someone else in a couple of months time - I'm gonna come and haunt you...

    And don't hold your breath on me selling mine --- I am really enjoying it! The biggest advantage to it, is you can shoot it when the light sucks for visible images.

    What an interesting looking area and apparently great place to photograph. I hear CA is supposedly going to have a banner year of bloom this year do to the rain/snow. When does this peak? Love the car graveyard, vineyard and windmill images.

    Re: One Day, Two Photographers (Jack + Uwe)

    Rob with all this rain California and Arizona have received so far this year it maybe as early as middle of March that it really gets going. Obviously some things like our big Sahauro Cactus is typically middle of May it maybe just come earlier than expected. Arizona in general has gone over it's annual rain fall already and it is only February which will bring early spring flowers and nasty wildfires coming in August when everything dries up and the monsoons set in. We could have a really nasty fire season but we will have a amazing wildflower season. Jack and I are already planning a early May workshop in California which will be devoted mostly to IR shooting and processing. Of course regular color shooting as well but we would like to lean a little heavy on the IR side since we have a golden opportunity here with all this rainfall. My house exactly where i live gets about 7 inches of rain a year. I already have had 8 inches drop on my house in the last month. Northern Arizona is buried in snow as we speak and not by the inches either but by about 8ft so far I believe in Flagstaff. We have gotten hammered

    Re: One Day, Two Photographers (Jack + Uwe)

    Agree with Guy. I live in the Tucson area and we've been getting lots of rain here as well - to the point that we're finally at a surplus; first time in years. Snow level here is down close to the 4000 foot mark and we actually have a 2% chance of snow where I live.

    Should be an outstanding year for wildflowers!

    So... You should realize that the color rendering is *VERY* dependent on lighting. The shots in Alviso of the railroad tracks were under heavy overcast, so less IR is penetrating, making the color spectrum more prominent. Yesterday, we had more open sunshine and so the color becomes less prominent -- here are 3 examples, all basically as shot out of the camera, except I even pumped up saturation by 10 points just so you could better see the hint of color:

    What is cool, is you do see what you're getting on the real lCD in live-view form, a bit handier than shooting it in visible and chimping. Also, you get an almost sepia/selenium split-tone effect straight out of the camera, especially if you desaturate by about 50 points. Still figuring it all out myself...

    Sorry Roger, missed this post --

    It is on private property but can be photographed from a public road.

    Thanks bud. Will play some today with it. I want to try some stuff on it.

    Re: One Day, Two Photographers (Jack + Uwe)

    So here is the same IR image processed 5 different ways. I'd appreciate knowing which you prefer.

    First is full IR color, straight out of the camera:



    Next is a straight B&W conversion:



    Next is a light sepia:



    Next is partial color neutral:



    Final is partial color warm:



    Personally, I'm liking to the partial color warm, but the full color is interesting too...

    Jack, I'm looking for very mild understaturated feel in the colours, those look perfect. Wonder what it would look like on walls and people, the kind of stuff I'm shooting usually.

    In answer to the 5 way comparison, I just love the first!

    Jack either the straight B&W or the partial color neutral but I don't see much difference between the two on the cr*p monitor I'm on.

    Okay I did not look at Jacks processing but here is my playing around with that image. I went for some juice with some grain

Arizona in general has gone over it's annual rain fall already and it is only February which will bring early spring flowers and nasty wildfires coming in August when everything dries up and the monsoons set in. We could have a really nasty fire season but we will have a amazing wildflower season. Jack and I are already planning a early May workshop in California which will be devoted mostly to IR shooting and processing. Of course regular color shooting as well but we would like to lean a little heavy on the IR side since we have a golden opportunity here with all this rainfall. My house exactly where i live gets about 7 inches of rain a year. I already have had 8 inches drop on my house in the last month. Northern Arizona is buried in snow as we speak and not by the inches either but by about 8ft so far I believe in Flagstaff. We have gotten hammered
    That was just the info I was looking for. My wife and I are coming up to our 25th anniversary and plotting out a month long trip in March as we speak, except for I'm in the dog house right now over a little mishap yesterday.

    CA might have to be included on the list of possible travels. But don't even start talking about wildfires already.

    Should be an outstanding year for wildflowers!

    Yeah was just looking at the weather channel last night and saw this winter storm spreading out all across AZ, NM and way into TX of all places. Including Big Bend no less. Sure been one wild ride of weather in North America this year.

    Not sure how to answer. I have my NR settings in C1 at 25 Lum, 50 Color as my default for ISO 400 IR in this camera, but there is still visible, obvious noise in my versions, at least at normal size view. But I guess one could say I am processing out noise. If Guy used lower settings then it will be noisier, don't know if he added any more in post. It's kind of why I chose ISO 400 as my default -- easy to go either way on the raw noise sliders and get grainy or relatively clean...

    I added noise. I dropped everything to zero than in CS added noise.

    This one is just nuts. Playing in color editor

    Cool thing is you can really work these IR files
