    The Lost Garden of Llandygai

    For this shot, in a glen close to Bangor/North Wales I was using a Lumix m.4/3 Full Spectrum conversion, with a Heliopan 780nm external filter, to allow me a little less hard contrast than a full 830nm filter (my favourite filter), as the lighting was filtering through a large tree to the right...

    On a visit to Western Australia... This image entitled 'Yanchep' was taken on a Full Spectrum conversion, with a B+W (Schott glass) #093 external filter, for a deep contrast style, and edited in PS6.

    Infrared Gear IR Filter + X100 = ...?

    As Chris said... the unconverted X100, handles IR photography really well. Infrared on the FujiX100... I use an 'unmodified' X100 for general work, but have found over the years, that the Fuji sensor is VERY sensitive to I.R. light. So much so that you can slap a Heliopan 715nm or Hoya 720nm...

    Just a few more weeks, before I get to my beloved Venice once again... sorry I haven't posted for a long time... I'll make sure I post more often. 90% of my images, taken these days are Infrared (B&W + colour), on cameras converted by myself... Although I own many IR cameras, this is from one...

    Lets Shoot some Badgers

    I'm off on a Badger night shoot, in a month or so... Although I can get shots from my cameras in a low lux, up until perhaps any time after that it looks like I'll have to use I.R. Flash and cable release.... I haven't made an I.R. Flash in 30+ years and when I did I was using I.R. film...

    Panasonic LX5 extended flash options

    One of my down issues with serious compacts is the lack of flexibility with the pop-up flash. Although we can adjust the ISO to push the capabilities, it is still somewhat limited. When I heard that the LX3 & D-lux 4 had included a flash shoe, I was extremely happy, but I held out for the...

    Animals Show Birds

    Came home one day after work.... looked out of the conservatory window to find this Sparrowhawk in my own garden with a fresh kill.... Rushed upstairs to pick up my Leica V-lux 1 and dashed back down. Made a gap in the blinds and took the shot through double glazing.... so not the clarity I...

    Animals Show Birds

    BBW... Tried the Raynox 2.2x Tele on my new Lumix LX5, but the vignetting on the 3:2 & 4:3 ratios is awfull.... This must be why Lumix have created the all new 1:1 ratio as it works really well on that one.... so it looks like I'll be keeping the extension lens in my compact travel kit after...
