infrared photography @ 850nm

In April 2019 I travelled to Kazakhstan with the definite purpose to experiment with the 850nm filter, which I had always left behind as a choice because of its harsh rendition of BnW tones.

Though this might be some kind of a limit on natural landscapes, it turned out to be the right choice to get good contrast in the sky even when weather conditions were not ideal, or even overcast.

Details rendition on architecture is impressive, as the deeper you dive into the NIR spectrum, the less light is scattered by the atmosphere.

I have also experimented with the 680nm BVR filter for false color, but I'm still working on a consistent postproduction process, as it turns out to be very different from the false color I've edited from 720nm shots.
