For Christmas Alex got me a book on photo filters that includes a section on using Photoshop so tonight I decided to play around and see what I could come up with.
This is the original shot I took when we went to the mountains to get our Christmas tree.
Minolta SRT 101; 28mm lens; Lomography Fine Color 100 film
The first thing I did was see what it would look like as a black and white photo. I like it this way because you see so much more texture in the tree bark and the soil.
Then I decided I'd try to turn it into a black and white infrared photo. It totally transforms the picture into something dreamy and almost otherworldly. I think I like this version the best.
I'm hoping that soon I'll get around to setting up a flickr account and then I can post more of the stuff I've shot, ya know, just in case anyone might want to look at it. :)
