Digital infrared photography
30 sec exposure
Ooh, it's like an alien landing or something!
exactly! The aliens were my first thought! Great picture!!!
Great photo, It's a shame i can't use IR on my camera. It wouldn't look out of place on the cover of a steven king novel. Slightly creepy!
I love the clouds they look like they are brewing a storm, very ominous.
Great pic congrats
Perfect timing green. I just bought a 10D and was wanting to do some photography like this. I was going to post a how to question when I found your post......SO, what kind of filter did you use and so on?
Dont know how green did it, but this thread has some good links to IR tuts.
Very 8) I will have to learn that one as that is the one thing I miss shooting digital.
Great shot, green!
That's for getting the IR look, but I think green shot using an IR filter, so she's exposing real infrared light. Photoshop effects can look nice, but they aren't the same to my eyes.
Many digital cameras are IR sensitive, so all you need to do is get the right size IR filter for your lens and experiment with exposure. You may have to experiment with the focus also, as IR light focuses at a different point. If you want to see if your camera will expose IR, point an infrared remote at it and see if you can see the light on the end of the remote flashing while looking at the LCD preview on the camera. If you don't have a preview, try taking a few pictures and see if you get any with the light showing.
Great shot Green. What lens did you use? There's a hotspot. I have a Hoya R72, and it seems that most zoom lenses will give you this hotspot. The 50mm f/1.8 is a great lens for it though.
So, anybody know if the Sony 717 is IR sensitive?
If the 10D is IR sensitive, I assume the 300D (same sensor) is as well?
All digital sensors are very IR sensitive, it's just that some models have a built in filter blocking IR. But I think you will get the IR effect with almost everything out there on the market with the right filter (one on the end of the lens that blocks visible light I mean).
