University of Sydney Quadrangle - Infrared by SteveCampbell University of Sydney Quadrangle - Infrared by SteveCampbell
The Quadrangle of the University of Sydney, photographed in infrared

F/8.0, ISO100, 14mm, 1/30, 1/125, 1/500
Samyang 14mm f/2.8
Shot with infrared-converted Canon 5Dmk2 (715nm)

Thought it would be interesting to upload 2 infrared photos in a very similar composition - one with RGB channel swapping (this one), and one without (thumb below). A "good and evil" type of theme. One warm and calming, and the other cold and unnerving.

Beautiful capture here that shows off all the lovely architectural details of the Quadrangle -the floral four clover pattern draws my eye as it flows off to the vanishing point in this hallway. But the scene within a scene in this vision that captures and transports the viewer into the realm of magic and enchanting beauty is the view of the 'flowering' tree from that stone arch 'window'. In infrared the leaves turn magical; they really contrast quite beautifully with the lovely blue hues of the sky. The branches of this tree flows across the view from the stone arches leading the eye to gaze at the other side of the quad and the University buildings. The light, the mood, and this being photographed in infrared really projects the feel that this University is easily believable as a place where magic and mystery can be found.

Now that's what I call a comment! You've perfectly, and eloquently, encapsulated what I was trying to capture here. Thank you Chrystyne!

Wow. This feels like a fantasy setting instead of a photograph. Very cool. Love the cooler blue tones going on here. The windows framing the the trees really bring out the surreal quality of this.

Wow, the Samyang 14mm is THIS good for IR? I see no obvious hotspot. How's the sharpness? How's the flare resistance?

It's very good. There's a very slight hotspot at smaller apertures, and flaring is much more subtle than any other lens I've used in IR. The hotspot probably isn't there at 2.8. I've only had one chance to use the lens since getting it though. The sharpness is phenomenal compared with the 17-40/4L and 16-35/2.8Lmk1

I particularly like the view of that tree on the right hand side. It looks like it could be a beautiful stained glass window. :-)

It's an interesting effect of extreme wide-angle lenses - the stretching at the corners seems to give things a curious two-dimensional look

Why does Infrared look like a painting?

SteveCampbell Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2016  Professional Photographer
It's just my personal processing style + photo-specific considerations. Some people process their photos to be low-detail and dreamlike.I thought a more dramatic and intense style suited the creepy atmosphere. I did indeed use similar aesthetic considerations as to when I paint(ed)
