Where shutterbugs unite to share their wisdom, skills and resources

And the same scene in colour.
To me this looks like good work. I should really not be too outspoken abou IR as my total experience in this area pretty much amounts to ‘hardly any’ Know that you use a filter and that you sometimes get interesting tones from the ‘invisible’light. Won’t you enlighten us a bit on the challenge in and satisfaction one can get from capturing the unseen light.
First saw a pic of IR in Practical Photography mag last year.
Main issue was sourcing a filter – got it on Gumtree!
Also, your cam needs to be sensitive to IR – not all are.
I have a D70 which picks the IR up with no problem.
Lots of info on the net re technique.
Basically – compose your pic and auto focus on f11(recommended on the net).
Switch to manual, take exposure to 1 sec, hold filter over lens and press shutter.
Then just follow a recipe for processing the image (also avail on the net).
Hi Lonnie. Most probably because I am old fashioned I prefer the lower image. I know one can get great images using IR>
Carefull of too much lens flare.
Hi Lonnie, Very nice…I like it..
Ben, Lens flare is inherent to IR filers, certain IR filters tends to produce a LOT more flare than necessary.
