second IR test shot by killersnowman second IR test shot by killersnowman
looks good to me.... got better results when i saved in raw format...

any input would be great, and i know its not a very interesting composition but it was mostly to demonstrate the coolness of IR

Cool stuff! I like how the vegetation came out extremely light and the sky extremely dark; classic infrared. :) The slow exposure also adds to the blurry, surreal feel you can get from IR shots. As far as a quick and dirty critique goes, you could probably use a little less sky and a bit more detailed land to even things out in your composition.

I have always been interested in IR photography, but until now, it has beeen a bit too pricey and difficult to experiment with. Recently I have converted to digital. Do you do any major post-processing in Photoshop or anything after taking an IR picture? Can you buy any old IR filter and expect it to work with a digital SLR?

sorry it took so long to comment back, but yes any sort of IR filter will work, however some cameras are more suited to IR than others because they dont have an IR cut filter ( a filter in front of the sensor that limits how much infrared light can get in), my camera has one and is not very sensitive to IR but some cameras dont have them and they take amazing pictures! =)

Huh, I'm going to have to see if my camera has a built-in IR reducing filter and find out if I can play with IR or not. Thanks for the info. :)

This reminds me of the little town the husband built in "Beetlejuice". That's so creepy!

looks like your question has already been answered.... you use a filter that blocks the visible spectrum and only the Infraredlight gets through to the sensor (we cant see it but the sensor can) so the sensor makes a picture using infrared light...

infra red = IR it's a light wavelength that our eyes can't naturally see, great picture by the way :)
