I have had an ongoing love affair with infrared photography ever since the days of film. With the advent of digital image making, the process has become an whole lot easier.....or not! No more high priced film, changing bags and guesses as to the best exposure. I initially did my digital IR work with a filter which was fine for the point and shoot cameras like my G2. You could see the new visions through the RM72 Hoya filter but the exposures were painfully long taking three to thirty seconds. The focusing was also an issue and had to be done manually. When I tried this with my Canon D10 SLR, the exposure was not only slow but you couldn't see through the viewfinder! This of course necessitated the filter off/ compose/filter on routine. I did my due diligence and found a website called www.lifepixel.com that would convert my Canon D10 to full time IR. I did not want to take a chance with my "old friend" backup camera but finally bit the bullet. I selected what was then the "standard" filter.UNBRIDLED JOY! How nice. Now I could see through the viewfinder, compose and hand hold IR shots at any f/stop with speeds usually around f/8 and 1/125 sec at 100 ISO and have autofocus to boot ! O.K. you came here for pictures so let's cut the gab and look at some results....hope you enjoy them.
