The digital infrared....
Well Seen! I think the bottom shot is my favorite. Beautiful tones in all the shots, tell us about your technique.
The 1st and main thing is to have the right camera and filter/s, I use my Sony F717 with the nightshot mode on during the day with a Hoya r72 infrared filter + a neutral density filter 8 stacked...find something to shoot, download the pic to your computer then use a program like Photoshop to change the pics to black and white adjusting the contrast as you see fit, thats the basics which I did in the pics above.
Here is an excellent website dealing with digital infrared
here's some done with an old Olympus 2020Z
You guys are doing some GREAT work. I wonder what other quality work is being done by GT members. Has anyone tried any "covert" IR shots, like the movie theatre shots of the '50s?
Nice stuff RBR, anymore?
Thanks, I like your work too. I haven't shot too much in IR yet but I like the fact that my Olympus has an excellent response to it. It's sensitive enough that you can good results shooting hand-held with short exposures (Hoya R72). I normally try to use a tripod for longer exposures and I sometimes like to also shoot a normal color shot and blend pieces. I bought the 6yr old camera to shoot IR only and use a Canon G3 for most everything else. Spring is here and I'm going to give it a good workout.
These are some great shots that have been taken. I especially like the cemetary shot and the antique car.
