Infrared Photos - Kalaloch and the Hoh Rain Forest

July 6, 2017

I spent the fourth of July holiday over on the coast at one of my favorite places - Kalaloch.  We did the usual beach hikes but did take a hike up into the Hoh Rainforest as well. I took my infrared camera with me.


Not particularly impressive, but it does the job. This is and internet download, but my camera is essentially the same, only a little older.  I have a (well actually I bought some backups at the Goodwill, so I think I have 3) Olympus C-2000z from 1999. What makes it so good for IR photography is that it has no IR filter inside of it.  Most cameras after around 2001 or so had a IR cancelling filter incorporated, making it impossible to shoot IR without heavy modifications.  You add an extension tube for a IR filter, get the filter and you're in business.  I bought my C-2000z's and C-2020z's for between $2.99 and 4.99 at the Goodwill.


Here is a shot of the Hoh river without the filter.

 Here is the same shot with the infrared filter.

Here are a few edited examples.  I prefer to convert them to grayscale and adjust them from there.  35 years ago I used black and white infrared film, and these look more like the effect, which I prefer.

 The skimboards at our campsite created a nice composition.

I liked this beach stump as well.
