    Infrared Images My first IR adventure begins

    Heuou. On Thursday I had my first Infrared Red converted camera delivered, a Panasonic G2 converted to IR 590nm on the sensor stack. I always wanted to try IR both colour and black and white. I went with this one just because it was 50 £ though it's far from being ideal: 12 MP old sensor (but...

    Infrared Images Foveon full spectrum reds

    Some wild reds, from this full spectrum capture with my FS-converted Sigma DP2s. No filter and minimal processing. This one is a bridge along a boardwalk of Pt. Stanley, ON, sept.2023.

    Infrared Gear Tiffen 80A with the FS-DP1x

    Experimenting with the 80A color correction filter on my full spectrum converted Sigma DP1x. The Foveon sensor is well-known for producing a lot of red in full spectrum mode. The 80A reduces the reds, with more yellow/orange tones. This was shot on the upper floor of the London (Ontario) Art...

    A couple shots from a FS-modified DP1x at a local outdoor car display. Typical red foliage, and color shifts on vehicles and people SOOC, with no filter.

    Infrared Gear sd Quattro-H Full Spectrum

    I no longer have the Sigma Quattro-H, but it was one of the easiest cameras to set up for FS. This one was from the rooftop of a Toronto lakeshore highrise. A Schott KG3 filter was used to attenuate the reds a bit, and limit IR to about 900nm.

    Infrared Images Old house in Aerochrome-style colors

    I have a few FS-converted cameras, that I like to experiment with various filters. I had my FS-Sony a7R with me when I happened to see this decaying relic along a country road. I processed to Aerochrome-style colors, which switched the green grass to red and the reddish roof, to green.

    Infrared Images Lone Cypress

    We drove 17 Mile Drive at Pebble Beach yesterday. The Lone Cypress is a very famous tree. I hadn’t shot any IR in several years and I forgot how much I enjoy the look!

    Infrared Gear CPL headache

    Hi, it's my first time out with a cpl. And nothing turned out right. Am I supposed to focus first then turn the ring for the desired effect or turn the ring then focus? It's not the lens, It's me or the cpl. Are cpl's created equally? I have some samples straight out of the camera, only...

    Following these instructions I manipulated a few images. It was easier once I recorded an action in PS, not that it's too difficult anyway. Here are some of the better results.

    Infrared Gear Help!

    Right, I’ve followed the various online tutorials about using infrared filters. I’ve set my white balance before taking the shots, and done the channel swap in Photoshop, but all the images still just look a reddish/pink mess. I suspect the Lumix G7 actually doesn’t see IR light, since I can’t...

    Infrared Images Infrared portraiture

    I stuck one of these in a "Portrait" thread last night, and it caused me to think that a little something involving infrared (and UV, but ick!) portraiture might be fun here, so I'll kick it off. These were all shot in 720nm infrared. This was what is technically known as a happy accident...

    Infrared Images Conversion isn't necessarily necessary

    Here are a few made with a cheap 720nm filter stuck on a Fuji X100. They're OOC but for auto white balance and channel swap, done in the GIMP. I particularly like the shadow in the last one. It also seems to me that angle of incidence is important in infrared, with vignetting being the...

    Infrared Images Comparison of various IR wavelength filters. B&W jpgs for interest only - sooc.

    If I want an infrared image to be B&W I always process from RAW. However, I set my IR camera to RAW + jpg and use a B&W camera preset. The only reason for this is that the viewfinder is easier to see in B&W than the mostly red IR version. The sooc images below are just for interest.

    Infrared Images Comparison of various IR wavelength filters. Processsed from RAW.

    The 5 RAW images in the previous post are processed as follows: 1. In Adobe Camera Raw apply a pre-prepared camera profile which is based on a custom IR white balance. 2. In ACR use the eyedropper to set local WB from a neutral area. 3. In PS use the Channel Mixer to swap the Red and Blue...

    Infrared Images Comparison of various IR wavelength filters. RAW.

    As I've mentioned I own a full spectrum converted infrared camera so it 'sees' most of the ultraviolet and infrared range of light (deliberately blocked in a normal camera) as well as the visible spectrum. You can limit this to parts of the visible + infrared spectrum by using external filters...

    Infrared Images Visible+Infrared with the Leica M8.

    The Leica M8 has a relatively week IR absorbing filter with a 5% leakage in the IR. An Orange filter blocks Blue light and about 1/2 of Green light. These are shot using RAW mode to get uncompressed DNG files, then the Blue and Green channels are equalized with Red. The result is IR in the Blue...

    Infrared Gear The higher-end Kolari conversion filters -- worth it?

    If things go according to plan, I'll be sending my 720nm X-E2 off to Kolari this week to get made into a 590nm camera. And as I go through the options, I see that there are three levels of filter offered: an "industry standard uncoated filter" IR conversion, an IR conversion that is said to have...

    Infrared Images Subtle infrared color

    Sometimes I think one of the delights of infrared color is that it can bring a subtlety of hues not found often elsewhere. Not quite pastel but certainly not loud. Here's a picture I made last week that kind of illustrates the point, I believe.

    These are some images made quite a while ago at Mt Vernon, VA. All images with a Micro-Nikkor 55/2.8, Nikon R60 filter. The DCS200ir is a full-spectrum CCD based camera, back when the IR response was as strong as the Visible response. Shots hand-held. I always spun up the internal 2.5" hard...

    Feedback Suggestion for a new "Infrared" forum - What parent category?

    A suggestion has been made to create a new "Infrared" forum but what parent category would you guys/gals suggest it go under? Put it under gear since you need the specialized/modified hardware for it? Put it under "Galleries" for showcasing infrared images? Could be "techniques" as well but...

    Infrared Gear The Meike 25mm f1.8 and infrared

    The Meike 25mm f1.8 arrived about an hour ago, and the first thing was to test it to see how well it did infrared photography. The answer is not perfectly but well enough to be entirely usable. The short version: it's just fine in infrared color up to f5.6, and in black-and-white up to f8 and...

    Infrared Gear 18-135 Fujinon and infrared

    The 18-135mm Fuji zoom is reputed to be an excellent lens for shooting infrared. Indeed, that's the reason I purchased one. Many Fuji lenses suffer from fairly bad to truly awful "hotspots" that render them unusable in infrared photography, which is too bad, because Fuji bodies are readily...

    Infrared Gear Cheap Chinese lenses and infrared?

    Greetings, everybody . . . I shoot a lot of infrared with my Kolari-converted X-E2 (720nm native, but I use an 850nm filter much of the time). And most of my Fuji lenses have from annoying to unbearable hotspots. Even the 18-135, which I got specifically for IR because it was said to be...

    Infrared Gear Starting to crack the infrared code?

    I have visited IR photography many times over the years and have previously owned two converted cameras (Oly E500 and Canon G9) prior to picking up a Pana GF1 this month with a broad spectrum conversion ( sees UV + Visible + IR). The advantage of this is by changing the external filters you can...

    Hi, I'm new to this forum but have been a Sigma DP1 user since 2009.

What I am surprised about is how little...

    Infrared photography is an area I have wanted to get into for some time. Now it is happening and I love it. I bought a Fuji X-E1 and had it converted by Advanced Camera Services in Norfolk with an 830 nm filter. It was a cracking job and the results just make me want to go out again and again...
