Every now and again, I like to show a before and after image. This is a straight out of camera infrared image and the final finished photograph ready for print. It takes a lot of seeing and coaxing to tease out the details for a final photograph. It doesn't always turn out the way I want, but it really helps when I can envision what I want and what I'm willing to do before I press the shutter button.
The above photograph is about lines and textures. In the infrared image the lines and textures are hiding out. With the right amount of patience and Photoshop skills the lifeless is given life.
It's been an adventure in seeing, but I'm a stronger photographer because of it.
