Infrared Aerial Photography
Australian Landscape Photographer Ian Wallace uses his physically converted Nikon D200 to capture some beautiful Black and White Infrared Images over the Tasman Peninsula. Thanks to Doug for flying!
I always jump at any opportunity to see Tasmania from a different angle, so when my 'keen-on-becoming-a-pilot' nephew Billy was down for a visit, my very good friend Doug Thost (commercial pilot) offered to take us to the skies in a light aircraft for a bit of an adventure!
And an adventure it was! The start of Spring in Tasmania is notorious for unpredictability, particularly with squalling winds and patchy rain, so it was with some trepidation that I bordered the Cessna (with only one propeller!) I'm not going to lie, it was a rocky ride (for someone who does not travel particularly well!) but the spectacular vistas that were offered were breathtaking (if a little heart stopping at times!).
Billy was having the time of his life, sitting up front next to Doug and I was in the back using my converted Nikon D200 (using photography as a distraction from the bumpiness of the flight) and manning the video camera just for a bit of fun and posterity's sake.
All up we were in the air for about an hour and I have to say I was glad when we landed safe and sound. I was keen to find out how the images from the flight turned out and managed to put a little video together with a handful of the images I took from the back seat of the Cessna.
A truly amazing Tasmanian experience that I will never forget. Many thanks to my good friend Doug for flying so skillfully and to Billy for convincing me that I needed to be in that plane!
