IR Season is Coming

Prime Infrared season is coming. There is nothing as vibrant as early spring green foliage in Infrared. Within the next 2 to 3 weeks we will be in what I call the prime Infrared Season.

If you attended the recent CanAm Photo Expo in Niagara Falls this past weekend, you may have witnessed some spectacular Infrared Imagery by Tony Sweet among others.

I have 2 LifePixel Infrared converted Nikon D200’s for sale. One is a super colour (590 nm) conversion and the other is a Deep B&W conversion. These are being sold at a reduced price of $550 each firm including battery and charger. When you consider a cost of $525 to send away a camera body that you may have laying around collecting dust for conversion, this is a hassle free steal of a deal that will get you started in Digital IR photography.

One of the great advantages of the D200 is that it is one of the most efficient Nikon bodies in setting a custom White Balance which is absolutely crucial to Digital IR photography.

As a bonus, I will throw in a day workshop of IR shooting and post processing, at no charge to get you on the path to IR magic.
Lenses are extremely critical for IR photography. I also have available a Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens which is a phenomenal lens for both colour and IR photography.

If interested please don’t delay because the prime IR Season is around the corner and I have already sold off 2 other bodies in the past week.

You can contact me here if interested in purchasing one of these gems.

Spring in the Central Adirondacks

We have organized a Spring Photo Tour to the Central Adirondacks Region. for Thursday May 31 through Sunday June 3, 2018.

We have 6 participants signed up to date. If you are interested in joining us please let me know ASAP was we are just 4 weeks away from the start of our tour.

Subjects will include colourful early and late light landscapes, typical spring wildflowers and classic Adirondacks scenes. The lighting at the edges of the day also tend to be clear and vibrant. Although this time of year does not present the mystical mist and fog that is experienced in late summer through the fall we may get surprised.

The Night Sky is magical in this region however with a Full Moon on May 29 the Milky Way will most likely not be visible. While the Milky Way may not be a prime subject, the stars in the West to North to East skies however will be vivid and abundant and when combined with the influence of the bright moon the astro-landscape promises to be compelling ... clear skies permitting. 

Wildlife subjects that we may encounter could be Bear, Turkey, Deer, Otter and Beaver.

Spring birds will be migrating through the area.

If you are interested in joining us please contact me ASAP.
