IR approach to Gardemoen

Recommended Posts

False color IR captured just before the the final approach to Gardemoen Airport (OSL) with my D40x IR-720nm and the trusty 105mm f/2.5 (from 2012) :

Very nice false-colour in the EIR fashion..... You might possibly tweak to get a little more detail in the redness, though.

 

Took me more than a few minutes (6, in fact) to locate the scene (it is evidently River Glåma in Østerdalen south of Elverum, around Jømna. Thus your landing approach was from the north).

Here is the appropriate topographic map area.

Thanks for the comment, and effort in localisation.You are quite correct, it was a flight from Tromsø. I struggled with the details in the reds (it is a difficult balance between getting them nicely saturated and washed out/overexposed), and admittedly, the shutter speed might have been on the long side or I did not quite hit with my IR shift compensation, so the details could have been better to start with. 

 

Edit: Nice map!

"Efforts in localisation" -- only because I recognised the river immediately, but not the whereabouts. I quickly discarded the idea your approach was from south, though, due to the combination of a major road and a railroad on the right hand side. So it was just a matter of patience and time moving the search area along the river further up north .....

 

Out of curiosity, what software did you use in the processing? I have returned to Aftershot Pro as it now is v.2 and deals with the modern cameras (at least all I own). ASP2 comes in 32- and 64-bit flavours, and I have both installed to make the most of the plugins (most of which won't work in a 64-bit environment yet). Sometimes I combine output from ASP and PhotoNinja as the former usually cannot match the clarity of the former and the latter restricts the colours found in an IR imasge due to the lack of appopriate tools for the purpose.

Oops forgot to answer

Oops, I forgot to answer this one  - somehow I overlooked the second part of the post:

I used CNX2 for the processing as I have always been doing with IR images up to now. It involved several color balance steps, moving (but not swapping) a channel range with the LCH editor, and a number of color control points. Interesting that ASP2 again has enough support to be used; during my recent comparison in a VM it was definitely one of the programs with the best user interface and also with enough effects on the sliders to be usable for IR editing.

      I have a spare micro 4/3 body that no longer sees service, a Panasonic GX-7.  I was looking at having it converted to an IR camera by https://www.lifepixel.com/  Does anyone else have any experience with a converted Micro 4/3 body and lenses shooting IR?  Which conversion do you go with, the standard IR?  My goal is to have some fun and explore an area of photography I have never tried before, and the redundant body with little resale value seemed like a good choice to try?

      I often think that the given light can play a more important role than the place itself.

      I'm surrounded by people who really wants to help me get established as a Nature and Landscape Photographer, and without their help I wouldn't have a chance..
      A couple of weeks ago I was given another golden opportunity of a very nice gentleman, I was given the chance of a "cheap" Nikon 300 2.8 VR.. Which I of course took..

      I'm so happy with the lens, can't find words to describe how happy I am right now, just waiting for money enough to buy a TC, 1.7x I was thinking! Then I'm ready to go photograph animals and so much other stuff I've been longing for.
      But, (there's always a "but"), there's a small issue I'm wondering about; When the AF is on and the lens is turning from the closest to the farest, I can hear a tiny "squeak", a little "beep" is sounding, it really sounds like it's something dry inside and could use a drop of oil or something. Anybody else in here who has had the same issue??
      To take the lens into service, money won't allow right now..
      Have a great day you all!! :-)
