First ir

Recommended Posts

Last year I acquired a used D200 and converted it to ir, standard 720 nm.

The camera survived the diy modification, but has not seen much use.

During the workshop at Herdla last spring, Bjørn (nfoto) gave me some instructions on how to process the images, using the Aftershot Pro software. So, here are some of my first attempts in IR. Lens in use was the 20mm/3.5.

Comments?

Not sure I instructed you to do colours *this* way, Ole? Anyway, play around and see what works the better for you. IR is very much about getting practical experience with a wide range of subjects and lighting. And remember, because there are no rules, there are no rules to break :)

Well, I may have overdone the colors. I still struggle to understand the process with the colors. Need to practice more. But the composition, exposure etc? Works for ir?

I like the pine tree shot, great with the very strong contrast and the green cast!

I have found that my 20mm 3.5 Ais is often not good for distant captures on D200 IR, often the image is mushy...

Thanks Erik. I will try other lenses for landscapes. I have a 28/3.5 and a 55/3.5.

In the meantime I struggle with those strong colors...

      I have a spare micro 4/3 body that no longer sees service, a Panasonic GX-7.  I was looking at having it converted to an IR camera by https://www.lifepixel.com/  Does anyone else have any experience with a converted Micro 4/3 body and lenses shooting IR?  Which conversion do you go with, the standard IR?  My goal is to have some fun and explore an area of photography I have never tried before, and the redundant body with little resale value seemed like a good choice to try?

      My old Nikon D80 is now converted to IR 830.
      This is my first IR image... actually an IR panorama.

      It was taken a few days ago from the "Passeggiata del Gianicolo", near a lighthouse, where you can have a nice view over Rome and its surrounding mountains in the background... clearly visible in IR; not so in visible light.
       
      The NEF was developed and converted to BW in Lr; some extra editing, punch and contrast, was done in Nik Silver Efex.

      These three IR images were shot on hike of the Queens Route in Vesterålen, Northern Norway in August. The hike goes from Nyksund under the mountains along the sea, then reaching the fishing village Stø, it ascends up on an narrow mountain ridge back towards Nyksund.  It was a day where light and fog was changing the whole time:
