Watermane by boomslice Watermane by boomslice
The weather has been simply fantastic here in RI over the last week. Sunny and cool, little to no humidity. What more could you ask for?!?!

In any case, I was experimenting with IR this morning and learned that white balance settings play a HUGE part in the end result. For this pic, the color is straight out of my camera and miles away from the purple/red that I'm used to seeing.

Remember seeing this photo years ago, I think at one point i had it as my desktop wallpaper....

Was just about to play about with my profile, and what better photo to add as my favourie than this?!

Love it.

hey what part of RI do you live in? I just moved to saunderstown....

i LOVE photography and need some good tips as to where the good shots are located in this state.

boomslice Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2008
I live in Smithfield, so I visit these places:

I'm sure there are beautiful spots in and around saunderstown right on the water, too.

This is a great shot. Color, compostion, good use of IR, speed to capture the motion. This is like one of those power bars that has a full days worth of nutrition in a perfect little package (but this is much tastier).

it seems almost fake its so serine.

Wow ...What a really cool shot. quite surreal. I think my camera is one of the worst cameras for IR photography there is. The nikon D2X. Your gallery makes me want to get a D70 just for the cool IR and UV photos it can take

I've been playing with IR for a bit, trying to figure out how to get the results I see people like you and (fantastic IR photos, among others) get. I even went so far as to buy a couple book son IR photography. The books themselves were only moderately useful, but I did find a useful link in Jo Farace's Complete Guide to Digital Infrared Photography. I saw one of your photos and a link to your site. I've found more helpful information in your site and the links contained therin than from any other deviant or any books, so thank you for the help. Now I just need to get out and try it!
boomslice Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2006
Dude, I'm flattered by your comments. I recently bought an IR book on Amazon and it was the worst crap I've ever read about the subject, so I'm happy to be a part of Joe Farace's book.

To be honest, IR is still very experimental for me because I refuse to understand the scientific properties of light and all of that crap. I'm sure I'll have to come to grips with it at some point in time, but for now, I'm more than happy making educated guesses, clicking the shutter and being pleasantly surprised. :)

If you need any help getting into IR, let me know and I'll do what I can. Otay?

Have a great holiday and thanks again for your comments. You've truly made my day. :nod:

That is just utterly incredible...a lil soft in the trees which I suspect is due prolly to the long exposure IR needs. But man......those colors!!!! Bowl me right on over!
Sidman Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2006
Wow. I want to jump into my computer screen and be theeeere... Picturesque.
chmielus Featured By Owner May 7, 2006
that is a nice one... I wonder how did you make water so orange? Was is only WB or did you use PS? Could you write in details how did you measure WB. I raed about a method with a white sheet of paper. Here are some useful tips on how to make such beautiful pics with D70 [link]

Hope to hear from you soon.

Wow. This is fantastic. Another great IR filter shot. I'm just dying to get one :)
Autumns-Grief Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2006
Very well done, but is this really a photo? It looks like digital art...or manipulated...

That's Kick @$$
timstapels Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2005
That water just looks too good to be true, very very inspiring work.
PHXPhotographic Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2005
I can see this is already a popular shot. me doing some IR myself and as a friend to a friend.. Have you tried this swapping the red and blue channels over in photoshop ? It will give the trees a more natural yellow wash and the water would turn to a rich blue.

I like this shot very much. :)

I love how claustrophobic it looks. Almost as if it's a miniature inside of a building. And yes, the trees are amazing and beautiful.
CamilaMuzaum Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2005   Digital Artist
Simply great! I love it! The reflection of the clouds on the water are amazing


Keep up the good work

RockeRolf Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2005
Yes! Nice picture. But shouldn't it rather be under photomanipulasion category?
kimbalina Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2005
Love the diagonal line of waterfall that runs across the image... it splits the colours nicely and plays havoc with my mind.
The swirl of colour under the falls is amazing.. what a cool place!

Thanks for the comment on yellow swirl! much appreciated!

Very well deserved Daily Deviation. I don't fully understand what I'm looking at, but the long exposure has created the most intriguing shapes and patterns in the water. Composition is excellent, well balanced exposure. Can't fault it.
joinka Featured By Owner May 27, 2005
i dont belive that it is real :O

jimmytheediblewyrm Featured By Owner May 27, 2005

Couple o questions:
Film used?
Exposure time?
Filters? (if any)
