Whoah, how the heck did you do that? I assume that's a mirror in front of the camera, but it looks like the lens is reflecting the room in front of you.

Welll it certainly looks good in my eyes, would you care posting a tutorial on how you did that?

Just got advice of the interwebs.

Can do it with any camera you want but obviously the more sensitive to IR the better - long as you have your IR filter.

Make a custom WB with the IR filter on (a hoya 72 is the norm the one on the camera I used was a Kood 72, I guess they are the same) - grass in direct sunlight preferable then shoot.

In photoshop elements/photoshop use adjustment layers.

1. levels - just auto

2. channel mixer - swap red and blue (make red = 0 and blue = 100 on red channel, opposte for blue)

3. levels again this time bring in the white and black sliders to the edges of the histogram proper.

after that you add whatever adjustment you fancy til you are happy with the image.

Seems simple but I'm still struggling a wee bit. I took some more shots today on a different camera (IS-Pro) whici I'll upload to Flickr soon enough, still don't think I've cracked it yet. Check out some of the IR shots on Flickr, some are amazing.

Cheers

Some of today's images.

Here are a couple of shots I took at work using a special light. Brand name is Crimelite and it is a specific wavelength light used for finding bodily fluids and contaminated latent fingermarks, sometimes you can get some cracking images. My office is fairly clean so nothing that's "woah, gross!" but some nice shots.

Hidden evidence but closer up!

There are a couple more on my Flickr showing different plastics fluorescing but if poeple wanna see em they can just click through. The space on the thread saved by not posting em will do for my IR shots when I get them up, lol.

I really liked how this turned out, except for the blow out sky. I had to take the quality down a lot for flickr, but I use the full 11meg file as my background and it's crystal clear. My first real attempt at a panorama.

I'm loving my new Nikkor 35mm, the F/1.8 gives phenomenal depth of field!

Ah, but that, my dear Guppy, is not my chair.

I decided not to show myself how dirty my chair might be! lol.

Went to check out a bigger version of that pano but flickr bounced me saying no permission.

Piano one is real nice with that DOF. Awesome on black (I really need to start doing that)

I have a manual 50mm lens that hits 1.8 but it is a bitch to focus (not to mention trial and error exposure settings). Still when I get it it is suh-weeeet!

@Bekabam: Nice one on that Panorama dude! Depth of Field is immense on that 35mm ha.

Well to be more accurate, the depth of field on the 35mm f/1.8 wide open is immensely small :)

Eh no, very serious. The depth of field refers to the distance between the near and far focus points. At a large aperture, the distance between these is very short, and the 'slice' of focus is very small, and the depth of field is very small. Which is why most of the image is out of focus. Large aperture = small depth of field, small aperture = large depth of field.

He'd have to escape the Child Cruelty folk first. Look at those poor flying toddlers.

lol

Seriously though they are good clean images.

I'm getting an Hoya R72 (?30) for my 52mm lenses on my D40 - not quite as deep IR will be acheived as the IS-1/IS-Pro but might put a different slant on the images - I will post when I get one.

Moonman - is that your gf or sister or I dunno?. Very photogenic and you DOF totally works in almost all of them. I notice though that she carries a DSLR too - she take any of you? Were they any good?

Lol, doubt he'd get that crazy depth of field (or any focus at all) using a 200mm lens pointed at his own face from arms length.

I'd like to see the results though.

I went down to Chicago for Lollapalooza with my friend. We were lucky enough to be able to stay at my aunt and uncles house. I didnt take my camera to the park in fear of it being taken away so theres no pics of lolla.

Great shot Andre. Would be perfect as a computer wallpaper or even a print for a wall.

The only disturbing thing is that little black dot in the middle - a bird maybe?
