Here is an assortment of landscape images I shot recently on my converted 350D.
In the area around Creswick in central Victoria there are the often large remains of tailings from the gold mines that dotted the area in the 19th Century. These are called Mullock Heaps and mainly consist of overlying rock and quartz.
While to some these are a blot on the rural landscape, to a photographer they present many opportunities for photography. A recent trip there with my converted for infrared photography Canon 350D and a selection of lenses produced the images below. The camera used a custom white balance and I shot in RAW. These were processed in Adobe Camera RAW and then in Photoshop. Most had levels adjusted individually in each colour channel, a slight contrast improving curve and an increase in colour vibrancy.
I’ve been working through the backlog of images I have shot over the last 3 months or so.
Here are a couple of macro shots taken with my infrared converted Canon 350D digital camera and a Canon 100mm macro lens.

The GigaPan Epic is designed to only handle smaller compact digital cameras. But a bit of ingenuity allowed me to use my Canon 350D, which was converted for infrared photography, with the Epic to produce IR panoramas. Continue reading “Infrared Panorama Photography With the GigaPan Epic”
