    Exclamation

    I've been doing some digital IR.
    Are there any real advantages of using film BW IR?
    You might gain light but you loose the instant preview capability (which I find crucial as you have to bracket both exposure and focus).

    Anyone found a way to buy kodak color infrared film?
    It is either prohibitively expensive expired or non-existing.

    VERY nice infrared images clusty! That second image is especially gorgeous.
    Care to give a bit of info away? Was this done with a modified camera or photoshop.

    BTW - the main advantage IMO of actual film was the increased tonal range. Digital is FAR easier and you can get very similar results.

    They were done with a EOS 350D with a 50mm f1.8 lens and a hoya r72 filter.
    I played a little bit with levels in PS and switched Red/Blue channels - a common technique to obtain more plausible results, namely the blue sky.

    The main nuisance was the fact that it took around 40-50 seconds to expose the image right. The catch to get colored images is to use a weak filter - hoya and push exposure time to maximum so you get as much normal light (color) besides the ethereal IR effect.

    I also have a modified IR powershot camera, but the images are almost 100% black and white so they are a bit banal. harder to find a suitable subject for them.



    Any ideas where one could find color IR film ?

    I guess it depends on what you like to shoot. I was addicted to traditional infra-red for a number of years shooting exclusively Kodak B/w hi speed infrared. Then I'd hand-paint many of those images. For me, NOT banal at all.

    Sorry I have no idea where to get that colour infrared.. But I'd start with Google searches and pro camera shops in my area.

    Best!

    I just got my Hoya filter so I am readay to shoot!!!

    If I am not mistaken,there is a mark on older lenses to reference the focusing point when shooting "film" infrared.

    My mistake has been seeking new landscapes. I should have been seeking new light.

    Beautiful pictures. I tried infrared with Nikon D2Xs. Get crazy exposure times like 1-2 minutes and pretty bad pictures with hot spots as a result.
