Wakodahatchee Wetlands Infrared Images

During my Lightroom for Digital Photographers workshop at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre I had the great opportunity to photograph at the Wakodahatchee Wetlands preserve in DelRay Beach, Florida. Known primarily as a wildlife preserve with incredible species of birds, turtles and even alligators, it is also a compelling landscape. I photographed in color and Infrared. These images were made with a Canon 20D camera converted to shoot infrared only and a Canon 10-22 mm lens. Images were processed in Adobe Lightroom 2.0. The Florida landscape has always attracted me, primarily as a background element in my collage work. I am increasingly attracted to them as images unto themselves. My lecture on my work while teaching at Palm Beach spoke of my increasing interest as landscape as final image. This shooting session only strengthened that impulse.
