BEHIND THE LENS

I use a range of formats; digital, black & white film, colour slide. I mostly use Canon cameras - I have two EOS 550D. Two of the same? Not quite - I will explain below. I also have an old Pentax that I use for slide films, a Fujica from the early 1980's with a good fixed lens that I sometimes use for black & white, and a Canon SX700S which has a 30x zoom lens for when I need to travel light.

 

My great passion is infra-red landscape photography. I started out in 2010 with a filter that attached to the front of the camera - this is tricky, as you have to guess the focus, and use a remote switch to minimise camera shake.

 

In 2012 I bought two Canon 550Ds and sent one to LivePixel in the USA to get the internal filter converted to infra-red. So now I have a normal digital camera, and a specialist infra-red.

 

I particularly like the way that infra-red can be processed to look like a slightly unusual black & white photo - it makes one see the world in a different light.
