Looking North in Infrared by eprowe Looking North in Infrared by eprowe
Another infrared shot taken from Lava Point in Zion National Park. This one is different from most you see taken from this vantage point. Most pictures taken from here, many of mine included, are taken shooting due east or southeast in order to capture the main canyon. For this shot I decided to turn my camera due north in order to capture a combination of evergreens, volcanic rock, and the outcropping you see in the distance.

nice work- im impressed at the control over not blowing the highlights...was this RAW editing or just good in camera exposure?

Short explanation: Good in camera exposure, weather, and RAW editing.

I always shoot aperture priority with an aperture of f8 for maximum DOF and looking at the EXIF data I didn't dial in any exposure compensation (I will occasionally do up to +/- 2 stops of exposure compensation depending on what I get straight out of the camera). So exposure was really good from the get go. The original doesn't have a pure white point or black point leaving me room to add contrast in post.

Looking at the original, and other shots from that day, I would say that the overcast and cloudy sky also helped to preserve the highlights. If it were any brighter or less overcast I'm sure those leaves in front would have been pure white in the original leaving me little to no room for adjusting contrast in post.

Hope this helped answer your question(s) Richard. If not, or you have more, don't hesitate to ask!
