Fall in Faux Infrared

This photo is best viewed large.

The latest issue of Popular Photography had a short procedure for simulating infrared photography with a few adjustments in Adobe Camera Raw.

This is the result of playing with the same adjustments in the develop module of Lightroom 4.  I saved the settings as a preset.  The will make a good starting point for experimenting with other photos.

I previously published a color version of this photos here.

Spring Training - 2013

As I write this there is still snow on the ground, but I can see the light at the end of this winter tunnel. The light is coming from those big towers you see in the photo.

Baseball has made it's annual migration to the south for spring training. There are several games every day. A few are televised on the MLB cable TV channel. Several more can be seen (with a subscription) on the MLB website or via an App on your tablet or phone.

That photo, by the way, is from last year. The Omaha Stormchasers are the local triple-A team. It was an unusually cold night in August. You can see more photos from that game here.
