black and white

I’m staying in traffic for a bit.
The other day I was out checking a new apartment. It has an excellent view, very photogenic in many ways and in many directions. This is probably not a direction you’d look at in first glance. But then again, that’s why things here are from a different angle 😉
Love the lines and diagonals in this, and it’s so powerful in black and white! 🙂

I’m not one of those fanatic guys who’s got one of his old camera bodies converted to an infrared camera, I’m using an infrared filter.
Which I hadn’t used in aaaages, I must add. It was nice to dig it out and have a go at it again, even if it almost cost me my camera, because a big wave came rolling in while the camera was balancing on a rock (without tripod, where are they when you need them??) during the 76 seconds exposure time and almost took me and the camera back in.

Here’s the out-of-camera shot:

That lens flare was annoying, but there wasn’t much I could to about it with the image that I wanted to take, so… But with a bit of post-processing, conversion, dodging and burning in Photoshop it came out quite ok:

Same specs as above, but with some additional work in Photoshop.

All you need is a dinner table, a willing family member, an Ikea light and a camera. Et voilà.
