A fast, four image-look at some of the infrared I did while in San Antonio a couple of weekends ago. Feedback appreciated. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Hi Dave ,..these are great!
I have a cpl newbie questions.
1: How do you get Infrared pics? Is it just a filter over the lens?
2: Do you ever shoot models in IR?
Thanks, RonC

Thanks, Ron!

On your questions ...

1) Traditionally, you'd load the camera with infrared film, slap on an IR filter (basically a black hunk of glass ... lol) and pretty much hunt-and-peck and hope you'd end up with something good after processing. Well, it wasn't completely blind hunting since you had an idea of what scenes made for good IR images -- but it was true that how well or poorly you did wasn't apparent until after you had the negs in hand.

On these I used a digital camera that is setup to do infrared. Most any camera is capable of doing IR with an infrared filter in front of it, but some are more in tune with it than others. The easiest way to explain it all is this link ...

IR info

At the bottom of that link you'll see a Sony camera mentioned and that's what I am currently using. The biggest benefit, to me anyway, is being able to actually "see" infrared on the back LED of the Sony -- which helps cut out the guess work from the old film days (although IR film's quailty was often better in my opinion).

2) I've done several model images with it, but there's a funky aspect that pops up from time to time when doing so. If it's a hot day, the camera tends to pick up the veins on the model -- yep, dark scraggly lines -- which is both interesting and unflattering (not to mention a wee bit creepy). I usually clean that up in Photoshop though.

Here are a few I did of Hillary a year or so ago (note that in the second image, the glasses are actually sunglasses that the IR "saw" through) ...









Hope that helps and thanks again!

Dave

Those are just cool! With the risk of taking a possible Canon beat down from the GG members,...is this shot with the sony? (not that it matters I just thought that had an IR feature so thats why the curiosity) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Yep Brian, any digital infrared you see me posting here are done with a Sony 707 I got off eBay -- strictly to do IR work with -- about two years ago.

And, while currently a Canon guy when it comes to my color work these days, I've shot with Nikons, Leicas, Minoltas (and a host of others) over my career. In the newspaper biz you get what they give you and you make it work ... lol

The one constant I've noticed, however, is that each camera model is a hunk of metal and glass. It's what you do with them that really makes the difference. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Thanks for the nice word, Bri!

Dave

Great work!
I was wondering if you would be willing to allow the use of some of these images for some "fantasy" drop in photos. I take professional model photos and drop them into your photo. You will always be listed as the artwork with copyright and you will receive a copy of the image before it is seen by others. If, at any time, one of the images is sold, you will also receive a release form and payment schedule for the image.
let me know your thoughts

David,
I don't do much posting since I don't have much to show in return, but I wanted to compliment you on these IR images. Really nicely done. If I understand correctly, I can't just place an IR filter on my Fuji S2 and expect to start producing IR images, right? Don't all digital cameras have some IR filter in front of the sensor? Did you do your conversion of the Sony camera to IR yourself?
If you have any more IR images to share, I would love to see them. Keep it up!
Cheers,
Grant
