Event Photography – Alta Vista Country Club (Infrared)


From a recent Golf Tournament I photographed at the Alta Vista Country Club.  This was a special shot in Infrared.  I had a great time photographing the event for the Southern California All-Stars.  Wonderful people and a beautiful location!    Pete Talke Photography is available for all types of occasions!   Contact me today and I can create wonderful memories for your event!!!   peter at talkephotography.com



This might be one of the first ever of this kind!  Here is my creation.  An infrared photo from Miami, Florida in HDR + Studio shot converted to B&W = a cool combo!  I was not sure how it would work.  Hope you enjoy!

Infrared Portraits

What a challenge it is shooting portraits in infrared!   Sharpness of shots with an IR camera is already a step behind the standard visible camera we all know and use as focal points are different. But thanks to plug-ins, you can generate a solid IR portrait.  This is the lovely Tiffany posing for my IR shot.  Enjoy!

Infrared Portraits

When shooting Doa in downtown Austin recently I brought my converted Infrared Camera and tried taking IR Portraits for the first time.  I had some great results!  A few of the pics I have to save for my up and coming IR Photography book to be published by Focal Press. But here I can show you how beautiful an IR Portrait looks.

Most shots have to be converted to B&W.  But you can also go with Sepia..and a slight chance a color version may work!  The key to such a shot is that the IR filter makes the skin look silky and smooth.  No touch up needed.  I had Doa pose in many ways…looking at the camera and not.  I found out that a direct view of the eyes is not a good thing in IR.  It looks too harsh and zombie like.  Above you can see she is looking away…safe!  It was a great learning experience!

The next step in my IR portraits is to get a couple pose with foliage in the background.  Now that will be sweet! I’ll post a version when I get one here!  Enjoy!
