Jackson Hole WY in Infrared

We've in Jackson Hole for a week and have had great conditions for infrared work.  As previously noted, we had a Sony A7r converted to shoot infrared fulltime by Lifepixel Infrared (click the link on the right for more infrared conversion information).  The camera has been converted to shoot in 665nm, better known as "enhanced color".  By adding a 720nm filter we can also capture "standard color infrared" or use a 830nm filter to capture "deep black and white infrared".  Both the 720 and 830 filters simply attach to the front of the lens giving us 3-seperate choices in capturing infrared.

The majority of our infrared work is captured handheld.  We had excellent results using the new FE 35 and 55mm lens however we wanted to opt for a single lens that offered both focal lengths and went with the newer FE 24-70.  Later on we also added the new Sony FE 70-200 which works equally well.

All the sample images included here were captured this past week in the Jackson Hole area using a combination of the 24-70 and 70-200 lenses; all were shot handheld using a combination of the base 665nm and 830nm filters.

If you're wondering just how good the 70-200 lens is let me add this. "Dry Skin" is a 100% crop of an image handheld taken through the window of our truck with the engine running.   "Aspens" on the other hand is not cropped however it too was captured through the window of our truck with the engine running.  Both images are non-supported, handheld.
