Long Exposure Infrared Hand Held by Jerry Hug, APSA

August 2022 - Long Exposure Infrared Hand Held

About the Image(s)

This was an experiment using Lightroom Mobile’s Camera and shooting with an IR 720nm filter attached to my iPhone 13 Pro Max. It automatically took about 50 frames and combined them together making a sharp image. I was pleased with the result and contrast that it made. The LR Masking tools really helped with a few areas that were blown out. Lightroom Mobile’s Camera gives me many more opportunities to capture IR images without a tripod. When I do carry a tripod and the iPhone and shoot using Camera +2 I can shoot with a 30 exposure in IR which is great for waterfalls and fast moving skies. Jerry

As usual, thank you for sharing all the possibilities of the iPhone... Amazing.
I am not a specialist of the IR, but I appreciate this picture. A first look, we can imagine a snowed landscape.
All the buildings are sharped (you explained how it has been realized). The car has space around it.
The lights on the foreground allow some interpretation of the place.   Posted: 08/02/2022 03:43:05

Jerry great job with the iPhone camera for Adobe.
I might suggest adding a slight subtle vignette - I tried it in NIK software CEP5 and used the Darken/Lighten Center tool for a subtle vignette. It seems to separate out the sky from the trees a bit and bring the eye into the centre. I used shape 1 and pretty much the default settings with the centre point placed on the leaves for the foremost tree. Though that may take away from the point of an Infrared shot :-)   Posted: 08/02/2022 18:12:20
