Best of r72 January 2017 - Update

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 1, 2017, 6:01 PM
Hello members, and Happy New Year!  I hope everyone is finding the new year to their liking.  

And we have a tie, congratulations to two winners this month:

by MatthiasHaltenhof :iconmatthiashaltenhof::
Walking in Whiteland 8 by MatthiasHaltenhof

by DimensionSeven  :icondimensionseven::
Blonde on Blonde by DimensionSeven

I know that the title of this blog is "Best of January 2017", but the truth of the matter is that January isn't a great month for IR.  Everything is cold and dead in the northern hemisphere, and it's much too hot to be mucking about taking photos in Australia.

So, that said, may I present, without further ado:

ALL! of :iconr72: January 2017:party::clap:



First up, we have eprowe who is usually one of our more dependable submittors, and is the photographer who most of gives us the stock photos for the Post Processing contests we do.  eprowe hails from the American Southwest; which, while beautiful, isn't exactly a land of dense leafy forests and grassy fields.  So the doldrums of January haven't much slowed him down.

eprowe is a master of finding lonely stretches of road which stretch away into the horizon, while they are often similar, each one makes me think or feel something different.

He also recently took a trip to Arches National Park, which I very much recommend if you are ever in the area (it is where my wife and I had our honeymoon), and got these unique IR photos of the natural rock formations:

He also got this shot nearby, and it is really worth looking at full scale and looking for the moon.

Next is one of my favorite photographers robpolder who is also less affected by the season due to the fact that he specializes in infrared portraiture

I am especially impressed with the creativity in these two shots, I love the use of shells to suggest vertebrae.  Which, when paired with IR, makes for a wonderfully surreal, but beautiful, look:

mIkeschwaRz has been keeping busy this month processing photos taken earlier in the year.  He appears to be playing around with a glow effect which I quite like.

amberstudios contributed three very different kinds of shots from low-angle and foggy to crisp and deep, which is impressive in it's own right, and shows someone who isn't afraid to experiment, but also really understands light.

DimensionSeven can always be counted on to contribute high quality art, whether it be exactly the right colors, or exactly the right photo for no colors at all, DimensionSeven is one of those guys who is as much artist as photographer and inspires us with every piece.

LDFranklin reached way back to 2010 to find some photos to process.  She was doing some interesting things with a lensbaby back then, I don't usually care for lensbaby stuff, but in this one, she managed to capture a neat depth of focus "ring" which is intriguing.

Also in the infrared portraiture realm we have TWPhotos who brings a great deal of expertise in the artistic nude arena to the IR format.  I hope to see more from him in the future.

I particularly like the composition of this piece from MatthiasHaltenhof.

Walking in Whiteland 8 by MatthiasHaltenhof



tsahel  is new to the group this month and has already won our post-processing competition.  This is her first attempt at IR and is pretty impressive given that, and how challenging the 850nm wavelength can be.

rylstone contributed this shot, which is very impressive because it is shot into the sun.  I have had nothing but frustration shooting IR into the sun, but he makes this seem effortless.

Winter Mequite by rylstone



Rizone is a master of waterscapes, infrared or otherwise.  I'm in awe of the sharpness in this image despite the long exposure.

Wayman paired IR with a wide angle to give us this lovely shot.

Cross Keys Panorama1 by Wayman



AngelsOdyssey made the most of a winter's day and the good old r72 filter to get this classic IR look.

visibleinvisible is new to our group and DA, but it looks like she is an accomplished IR photographer.  She is also one of our photographers from south of the equator so I, for one, hope she gets out and gets some photos, February looks to be pretty slow.  Be sure to check out her gallery.

And that's it for the month.  Be sure to vote in the Best of January Poll here….

Keep learning, keep shooting, and keep submitting.
