I just got a Hoya 72 IR filter.  It was a Sunny day, so I ran up to the local state park and shot this row of live oaks covered with Spanish moss.  Seems IR shots thrive on that bright mid day Sun that normal photography shies away from.  I'm going to try a Sunset to see what happens. And just for yucks, I made a 16X20 print and it is pretty neat. :-)

That is a lovely image David.. Seems that filter worked well for you.

 

 One of the comments I have heard on the use of filters is that the photographer questioned wanted to see the effect in the field as opposed to waiting till he got home. Another was that he preferred time out in the landscape than in the office when back home..... I suspect those who work in studios as opposed to the landscape may well find working on the PC more in tune with their desires... Each to their own...(-:

For some reason I'm not able to view your photo, weird...first time ever I think, the file comes up as a ? mark.

I love a good IR landscape! Did you use the IR filter with your 5D Mark III? I tried the same thing with my 6D and I got terrible results. I think the 6D's IR- cut filter is too efficient. To compensate for that I had my T3i modified to shoot full-spectrum. You cannot truly recreate the IR look with post-processing... you can imitate it, but it won't be the same as the real thing.

Thanks!  I used my 5DIII.  With the filter, what you see in camera is quite red.  In order to process it, I had to make a special camera setting using the Adobe Profile Editor so that you can have more latitude with the white balance.  And the filter is only good for producing B&W.  TrailEx...you're correct.  You need to have a modified camera in order to get that cool color, albeit faux color, but it still looks way cool!!

Ah David; you show us things in ways that uniquely and beautifully allow us to peer into the world as you see it through your lenses, filters and PP prospective.  Many thanks!  I admire your venturing into the not-so-common and am so happy you take the time to share with us. Bravo!

I've done it again... :unsure:

Yesterday was the first sunny day for ages and the light confused me....

Apologies, David.

And here's my second shot. I did a reshoot of this bridge and also shot it with the IR filter on.  I really need to look at getting something like an inexpensive used T2i or some such camera and have it converted for IR shooting so that I can play with that faux IR coloring.

Getting a second camera converted for IR makes it both easier and harder to shoot in infrared in my experience. On the one hand, with the IR camera you have the ability handhold shots as well as see through the viewfinder without worrying about an external filter, so the act of shooting in IR is vastly easier. However, when going out to shoot, unless you're willing to shoot exclusively in IR, you will have to carry two bodies with you. Many times I've gone out hiking or some other outdoor activity, and I didn't bother bringing my second body just to save weight and space.

IR is certainly presents an interesting alternative perspective as an art form. That is a really nice bridge scene and seems ideal as a base to work on, thanks for posting David

It would be interesting to see the same image, filter removed, in B&W. Also IR image in B&W.
