About Me

My photo
This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

american cemetery in infrared


American Cemetery in IR

Its a surreal place even in "normal light" and rendering it in infrared made it even more eerie.

The American Cemetery in Fort Bonifacio is one of the favorite places of photographers in Metro Manila. While there are sections that are off limits, the rest of the grounds are accessible to the general public. Even on a weekend the place is quiet and seemingly deserted.

Here are my takes on a scorching hot midday, unfortunately that's the best time to take infrared photos is when its really sunny.

American Cemetery 2

American Cemetery 4

American Cemetery 5

These are all "false color" IR. The original color of the photos is of course RED. Not all lenses by the way are good for taking infrared photos. Most of the ultrawide lenses in the market produce "hot spots" - bright areas right smack in the middle of your photo. For these photos I used a borrowed 10-24mm Nikkor with Haida IR720 (equivalent to the more popular Hoya R72 filter)

Thanks rica! The guards did ask my brother and I if we were shooting for commercial purposes since we had tripods. But they were very polite. We told them we were balikbayans, partly true actually, only my brother is a balikbayan. They just told us to keep off some of the sections there.
