Crossing The Potomac To Selden Island

Crossing the Potomac to Selden Island

Camera: Fuji X-T1
Exposure: 12 sec.
Aperture: f/2.8
Focal Length: 14mm (23mm full frame equivalent)
ISO: 800
Filter: B+W 093 Infrared Filter, >830nm bandpass.

On a break at Janelia Farm, I went for a walk with Rob, down across the Potomac to Selden Island and decided to try my hand at IR photography.  Its beautiful out there…

It turns out that the Fuji X-Trans sensor actually passes quite a bit of IR which makes it a pretty spectacular camera for IR photography.  This camera has not been converted to IR photography by removing the filter over the CCD.  Rather, I simply used a B+W filter that blocks all spectra except that at 830nm and above.  The exposures are longer on a configuration like this (12 seconds in this example), but that brings with it, its own advantages.
