  1. 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?

    Black Cat In Red

    Taken with D200IR with 7x0 nm filter Werner
  3. My old Nikon D80 is now converted to IR 830. This is my first IR image... actually an IR panorama. 1 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.
  4. 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: The humanoid by the sea: #1: Fog lifting for a moment: #2 Weather drawing up? #3

    Back from two weeks visiting the Loire Valley, partly on our bicycles. This was taken in the wonderful gardens of the castle of Villandry, with my IR modified D80.
  6. hi first time poster, long time reader: i am an amateur photographer in NYC (D7100) looking for some advice: i recently came in to possession a WWII artifact that belonged to my grandfather, Mordka Topel: after he was liberated from the Flossenburg Concentration Camp in April of 1945- he stayed in a barn in the nearby town- and left a camp-issued vessel (or pot) there. after almost 70 years, we were able to identify and reunite it with my family the problem i have is the 'etching' that he performed has worn off. the bottom sketch below shows how it should look do you believe an IR camera would reveal the actual scratching? thanks CJ image by luzer, on Flickr image (1) by luzer, on Flickr M_Topel_Gravur by luzer, on Flickr

    blue grove

    I keep going back to two castles near my house, this one more than the other. It is interesting to see that after so many years, there are still plenty of opportunities I have never considered. It tells a lot about my lack of vision... This is an IR shot take at the "Chateau de Méry". The colors were there, I did not paint them in. Taken with my dying D80IR and a 16mm f/2.8AI fisheye. This lens exhibits a faint and manageable hot spot.

    Faux color IR tropical garden

    Well I am continuing to battle with IR processing. This one is a little out there but after a couple hours of practicing processing not to mention many hours of working on others and getting nothing I like, I had to show it to some folks! I was thinking tropical "fish tank."
  14. I'm in Florida visiting relatives. I was told the weather was beautiful and it's been a while since I worked in IR so I thought I would break out my converted D70s and take some shots. The weather has been gray and windy but I was determined. I have included below the original image as it came out of my camera and my processed one. I'm interested in feedback in general since I can easily get back to this location to keep trying to improve it. And, it is actually sunny today but very, very windy. 1) Focus point - I was using manual focus. I tried a number of focus points but the one that seemed to have worked is making sure the palm trees against the sky seemed sharp. It's really hard to focus with my D70s. I tried focusing at the top of the stairs or even a little into the grass (about 1/3rd into the image like I would for a landscape shot) but that didn't get the trees sharp. I wanted to focus on the nearest part of the large clump of trees but it was too hard to see in my viewfinder. Where would you suggest I focus on this for IR? 2) Exposure -- I had to slightly underexpose; the histogram was on the left 2/3rds of the distribution. It was really windy. I didn't think the IR would do well above 200 ISO. I was at f8 and 1/500. I even felt that I could have needed a faster shutter but f8 seemed the minimum DOF I needed. What do you think about the tradeoff? Would you have pushed your ISO and figured you could get rid of noise later in post processing? In short, did I make the right choice? I thought of underexposing further by increasing my shutter speed or going to f11 and counting on my RAW file to be able to be corrected in Lightroom enough. I essentially did that but not to an extreme. Would that have made sense with IR? (I sometimes do that with visible light images.) 3) Post processing - I pulled the RAW files into Lightroom and didn't alter them (they have some minimal Camera Neutral calibration and some sharpening by default). I then edited in CS6. I'm not exceptional that CS6. I probably haven't used it in 8 months. I swapped the red and blue channel, used auto tone and auto contrast. Then, I used two hue/saturation adjustments. One was a global one to desaturate red and yellow and green. Then, one on the blue and cyan to work the sky. I then went back to Lightroom and fixed the angle/crop slightly. Is that too much processing? I wish I could do it all in one shot and I wasn't sure if the starting sharpening in LR made sense to export as a starting point in CS6. Lens was 17-35mm Nikkor at 22mm. I didn't correct for the lens. I was shooting handheld but I did bring a tripod. I'm just wondering what other folks would do here and if I can go again, what I should try to improve on this in any way. I have attached two files. One is the original RAW file in JPG 100%, 72dpi output and the other is the processed one same way. Thanks for looking, Deena
  15. Trying to experiment with false color and IR in general. The colors feel like a real challenge to get something "tasteful". In the bush on the beach shot, I tried making the leaves white but then the shells on the bush were not discernible.

    the wave

    Winter made an unexpected and welcome (for my kids at least!) comeback in the northern part of France.
  17. Lately after I borrowed a IR converted D40X I've rarely left home without it. The manual focused Nikkor 50 f/2 (non ai though) fits the camera very well, concerning both size and weight, and is one of my favorite lenses for IR. Beautiful sharp and no obvious hot spots on neither wide open or stopped down. I thought the edit part were something I didn't quite get the hang of, I didn't get to "release" as much colour as I wanted to, and as usual things who's right in front of my nose the whole time I have a strong tendency to overlook... (Found it now though..) :-) A little selfie in the water..
  18. If you do not like images of mountains as single subject, skip this post. :-) These were captured during two field trips to our Toolik Field station on North Slope in Arctic Alaska this "spring". On the drive up Dalton Highway the light was somewhat hazy and flat, and that is where IR comes to the "rescue". First view of Brooks Range appears when one pass Gobblers Knob, looking north. The low area is among the coldest in North America, and the hills were victim to extensive wildfires a few years ago. The green trees are the few spruce trees that survived, the black ones are burnt. Compare to the hill in the far distance which is almost entirely green. (Please view large). #1 North fork of Koyukuk river. #2 This is not spring melt but overflow that can go on throughout the winter: #3 #4 Still on the south side of Brooks Range: #5 #6 The high areas at Atigun pass: #7 #8 #9 North Slope looking south toward Brooks Range: #10A #10B Arctic logistics. #11 #12 #13 #14

    First ir

    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? Ole
