Infrared Photography

For years I have been wanting to destroy a perfectly good brand new camera to modify it to shoot in full spectrum.  To shoot in "Full Spectrum" means that I needed to modify the camera to remove the internal filters that removed the Infrared (IR) and Ultra Violet (UV) filters.  Then I need to put new filters on the camera lens to block out all the light except IR or UV.  Thus, no visible light is able to pass through the camera and only the IR or UV light waves will touch the sensor.

6/18/2014 Tornado that tracked from Alpena, SD to just southwest of Huron, SD

Today was one of those days you live for as a chasers.  I was able to make it out to South Dakota to chase today and got on the tornado that formed near Alpena, SD and tracked all the way up to just southwest of Huron, SD.

From what I can tell, the torando did not hit any towns or homes, just farm fields and tree's.  As a chaser, this is the perfect tornado because they form over an area that does very little impact to personal property.  The worst damage I saw was roofing shingles torn off and powerlines down. 

Ahhhhh life...

I know I said I was going to update my blog a lot more then I have, yeah well, been busy with work and putting all my energy and time towards StormChaingVideo.com the facebook pages, the social media sites, the other stuff and life. 

I'm going to be working on a site overhaul this summer with more stock photos and video stuff.  Until then, I'll try to get more updates about what I have been up to.

Saturday I was woken up with the calls about thunderstorms and flooding.  Yes, it has been flooding a bit here in Central Minnesota. 

45 hours in a SUV to drive across the country and it was all live streamed

Ok just getting caught up on the personal blog about what has been happening in the last month.  Winter is finally over but I think we will have one more major winter storm in northern Minnesota before the end of this month. 

Ben and I survived the road trip across the country and we set the record for being the first to live stream across the United States of America and to live stream across the USA on Youtube Live.  It took 45 hours from Time Square in NYC with non stop driving to Venice Beach Pier in California.
