When packing up for my exodus from Savannah, GA with the center of hurricane Irma forecasted to hit the city dead on (it later hit farther west), I made sure to pack as much photography equipment as possible (we all have our priorities). One of the things I brought with me was my infrared-converted EOS 7D.
 
Deciding not to brave the flood of traffic heading to Atlanta, we instead headed west to New Orleans to stay with family who resides there. One of the places I visited while in New Orleans was The Fly (or, more precisely, Butterfly Riverview Park), a waterfront area located in southwest Audubon Park along the Mississippi River. The Fly is a popular hangout for college students, who typically enjoy sunbathing and other outdoor activities in the manicured lawns next to the river.
 
While the hordes of college students were certainly interesting, a few isolated trees on the opposite side of the road from the river bank caught my attention. With my IR-converted 7D available, I photographed a few of the trees. My favorite appears at the top of this post, and another image I enjoyed can be seen below.
 
The Fly in New Orleans Tree 2

Photographing isolated trees on flat land set against a bright blue sky with a Super Color IR-converted camera creates a dramatic contrast that helps draw the viewer's eyes directly to your subject. If photographed with a normal camera, the scene would have much less impact.
 
Upgrading DSLRs in the near future? Consider converting your older DSLR to an infrared camera to add an inspiring and creative tool to your kit.

From The Art of Photography YouTube Channel:
 
One of my favorite features in Adobe Lightroom is the mobile syncing function. My favorite use in addition to syncing to the mobile app is the ability to create web galleries that automatically sync to your edits. This is particularly useful in collaboration situations when working with a client. In this tutorial I will show you how to create these.

Late last year, I stumbled across Topaz Impression, a standalone (and plug-in) software application which can turn photographs into realistic-looking works of handmade art (paintings / drawings). I had been looking for something that could produce similar results for several years, and Topaz's plug-in quickly won me over. After testing out the plugin on several images, I asked Bryan to sign up for Topaz's affiliate program and told him I would post about my experiences with the software the next time Topaz ran a deal on the software. Well, that time is now.
 
Through tomorrow, you can get Topaz Impression for 40% off. While the retail cost of the software may seem a bit steep, I think it is well priced considering the convincing quality of the images I've processed with the software. With the ability to provide clients with a canvas print that actually looks like a painting (aside from the missing three dimensional texture of the paint), you can increase print sales with little additional effort in processing.

From the Adorama YouTube Channel:
 
The German Roamers are a group of 14 photographers who are some of the best German outdoor photographers on Instagram. They love showing their audiences the wonderful nature of Germany but they have also created a place for inspiration, exchange and community.
 
In addition, the quality of photography plays a central role. All members embody a new visual language, which is not found in classical landscape photography. It is about transporting passion and authenticity in the images, building a link to the respective motif and going new ways - in the truest sense of the word.
 
Thus, the German Roamers would like to be perceived as a collective that understands the world around them in first-class, unique images. In Germany as well as all countries of the world.
