Event Photography – Alta Vista Country Club (Infrared)

Golf-IR-01SW

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

Infrared-HDR-Composite

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!
