Blue Genesis

Blue Genesis – Gus S. Wortham Memorial Fountain

This is an infrared image of the Gus S. Wortham Memorial Fountain in Houston, Texas. Using infrared does not always mean converting to pure black and white. In this image (taken at 720nm) I performed a Red/Blue color channel swap in Photoshop and decided to keep the subtle blue and magenta tones that remained. My decision to pair infrared with long exposure with the Lensbaby Edge 80 is not typical, to say the least. In this final image, nothing you are seeing you can see with your naked eye when standing at the fountain. And that’s a goal…a total removal of an image from reality.
