I shot this and one other with less tree, at this location but I shot half a gig of stuff that afternoon. Several others from that day are in my portfolio. I have to use a tripod with the IR filter and the D70 because of long exposures hence the blurry tree tops. I've grown to like that feature most of the time.

Just curious if you had to modify your nikon internally to shoot this, or do you just need a 25a filter? Have not ventured into the DSLR yet still shooting a F3HP when I have time.

No mods,just a B+W 093 (87C) Infrared Filter, a tripod and the little Nikon remote control are all I use. The 25a filter doesn't block enough of the visible spectrum to get much effect. Regards,

Hi Jim. This is great! Not only a wonderful "wood" effect in the infrared but the composition is sensitive as well. Looks like it was a windy day.

I have been playing around with infrared myself using Macophot 820c film and a Lee 87 filter. Transmission starts around 720nm, a little more into the visible than your 87c. Regards.

Nice composition, tones, and shadows. Very well done. The sky in the top middle of the photo looks a little strange. Just a function of the IR, perhaps? Cheers.

Thanks Barry. I think the sky looks strange from the effect of the tall thin Eucalyptus trees whipping back and forth in the wind during a long exposure.

A wonderful infrared photo that achieves exactly what this medium does best: ie. to convey an other worldly ethereal atmosphere. Very wide angle with plenty of foliage often proves successful; I'm just amazed you did this with a D70, I thought it was Kodak HIE film at first! Actually the blurry trees almost replicates the halation effect with HIE. Well done.

 

Cheers, Miles.

Nice fresh green Spring foliage helps with this effect. With the long exposures I'm using I get "grain" too, sometimes....from the increased noise.

Thanks Jim. Your results are great, I must try it digitally. I want to photograph the temples around Angkor in infrared.

Super IR shot with nice tones and a excellent balance between lights and shadows.

Best regards, Fernand

Very nice...my dad worked in one of those bunkers at the Atlas Powder Company for 32 years, I wish he were still here to enjoy this remarkable photo.

Thank you, Lynne
