Spooky!

There is something, in my mind anyway, about graveyards and churches that goes incredibly well with Infra Red shots. I had an old camera that wasn’t really doing much, so I had it converted to take infra red pictures – it’s a bit of a path of no return, as you can’t take ‘normal’ shots after – so if you don’t like it – tough!! The colours straight from the camera look like the above  pic, mainly browns and reds, but the grass turns a lovely white colour. Most people convert the shot straight to black and white, but I love these tones – very atmospheric, so I think they are really missing something. Funnily enough though, if you take a shot with studio lights, everything turns out blue!

I may be visiting this site a bit more in the next few months – there are signs that daffs are on the way (last year it was a sea of yellow, but I missed it by a month!!), and after that, tis bluebell season!
