Kōmyō-ji Temple, Kamakura, in infra-red

Shot sometime in late April 2012

Digging out a few files from the past month/six weeks and this one was shot whilst I was doing a photo-tour for a lady in town from Singapore.

We'd followed a favourite route of mine through some of the backstreets and off-the-beaten-track parts of Kamakura. Ending up in Kōmyō-ji is always a nice way to finish the day: a beautiful temple and the only major one in the town which is near the sea. So, last stop is usually the beach as it is just five mins walk away from here.

Gear etc?

Infra-red adapted Nikon D300

14mm f/2.8 lens

White-balance shot on a custom preset, balanced from a nice patch of green grass.

Photoshop?

New adjustment layers: channel mixer, curves, colour balance, to begin the process the 'false colour' into the shot.

Nik Color Efex Pro 3: polarization, photo-stylizer, darken-lighten centre.

Took me about 10 or 12 mins from start to finish.
