      Thanks, judyboy and laurallis! judyboy, that green was sooo unexpected.

      bokchoyboy, maybe after the contractors clean it up a bit. Then it should be good for a dip. ;-)

      Nice technique - did you use a filter or a converted camera for the IR exposure?

    7. ec808x ages ago | reply

      Thanks, SkyShaper. I really appreciate the compliment.

      Avant Gardenias, thanks. This was shot with a filter. I'll have to wait a little longer before I can afford another body. Then I'll covert this one for dedicated IR.

      Wow...I'm impressed. There's no traces of that annoying red wash that comes with using an IR filter here. I don't know how much combining it with a color image makes it go away, but I'm still trying to figure out some IR techniques. I don't play with the filter very often just because I find it limiting in a lot of circumstances.

      Thanks, man. My first love is long exposures. So, IR isn't such a stretch. I used a patch of grass to set a custom white balance. This usually get's rid of most of the red. If you're using an R72 (cut off at 720 nm in the light spectrum), you get more red. This was shot with a 870 nm filter, and that helped control the red immensely. You can also swap color channels in Photoshop for some wicked effect. Check here for more info:

    10. Avant Gardenias [deleted] ages ago | reply's funny you mention that. I consistently use weird custom white balances in my normal shooting. I don't think I've really gotten around to trying it as much with IR.

      Also nice to know we're using slightly different filters. And thanks for the link.

      you appplied a great technique here. good idea and very well done.
      seems like a little bit x-pro'd which i like about it and the block on the front (cannot quite tell what it is, placed very well in the frame.

      Thank you, Atilla Soylu. Infrared affords a lot of expirimenting, which makes things fun the post process.

      ou can also swap color channels in Photoshop for some wicked effect wicked in a good way? or over done way

    15. ec808x ages ago | reply

      I suppose it could color swapping could be overdone, but I've seen some amazing ones. I'm still tinkering around color swapping, and I haven't found a way to do it that makes me 100% happy with the results, yet.
