Re: Infra Red Photography

I don't take IR shots yet (keep meaning to have a go, seeing as I just need to remove my dustshield!) but most advocates do not seem to tone their resulting images, but leave them as B/W - simpler, cleaner result

Re: Infra Red Photography

What setup are you using to get these? Most of the IR shots I've seen in the past have had a ghostly looking black and white look to them.. almost like a black and white HDR. I'd love to give IR photography a shot. I liked the image second from the bottom.. the temple with the golden tones. Very cool stuff.

Re: Infra Red Photography

Thanks for dropping by to give comments. Fyi, all IR shots must be processed in the channel mixer. There must be a channel swap. Red becomes blue, blue becomes red then play the level adjustment.

If your DSLR has been modified as a full time IR cameras by removing the Hor mirror then you can just shoot as you go. However, if it's noy modified, you need to set the white balance to customs wb and adjust the values. set the to high ISO and very slow shutter speed (must use tripod) and this ir shot must be taken under sunny/hot day.USE the HOYA R72n filter.

Re: Infra Red Photography

James, I have taken a couple of genuine IR films which were Black and White and ithis produced stunning results with the right subject and lighting conditions. I have tried to simulate IR B&W with digital and again it works well in some cases. While my DSLR has an IR filter, my wife's Nikon compact does not. I took a few shots with this and produced some coloured IR pics. The colours were unusual though not unattractive. However, like you I was not satisfied and have not used these pics yet. I guess you could try using a combination of "Replace Colour" and changing the Hue in a Hue/Sat Adjustment Layer.

Re: Infra Red Photography

Try shooting RAW and then when opening the IR images on your PC, play with the white balance until u see something you like. Then export to your imaging software and do some levels.

Re: Infra Red Photography

I'mn now using NIKON d100 that has been modified into fulltime IR camera without having to use IR filter. Just point and shoot. Some new pictures can be viewed at my web, http://www.jamesdutaphotos.com/infrared/

FYI, Infra Red Photography is the trend now in Indonesia. If you wish to see some great IR photos, please visit MyInfrared.com - Digital Infrared Photography or Johannes Go Infrared

At the moment it's considered a must to use IR camera when shooting pre-wedding sessions or outdoor modelling photo.
