2007.04.27, near Pécs, Hungary.

Nikon D80 - 18-70 @ 18mm - f/6.3 - 30 sec - ISO 125 - Cokin P007 infared filter - NEF - ACR 3.6 - PS/CS2

It is a common belief that harsh mid-day lights are the best for infrared landscapes. I tend to disagree. The 'Golden Hour' is good as well, if not better: the wind chills, and the shadows are not that harsh. I had some luck with this one: half an hour ago there was some wind, but as the sun was setting, it chilled. The air was so still, that during the 30 sec. exposure almost nothing moved!

You can find even more infrared shots from me here!

The Golden Hour by *DimensionSeven Comment by @limetastic "I really love the pink leaves and the sky reflected in the lake reminds me of a clean sheet of glass. Especially with the water so calm. It's a 30 second exposure and yet the motion isn't really visible in the leaves. This deviant's gallery is pretty much chocked full of amazing landscapes and other nature shots. I'm just a sucker for IR. ;]" ( Suggested by Limetastic and Featured by Photosbykev )

Nos, mivel nincs szűrőmenete, ezt ajánlanám: [link] - mármint csak a tartót, egy Cokin A007 lapszűrővel (ami méretétől eltekintve megegyezik azzal a szűrővel, amivel ez a kép is készült).

I would really love a go at infared. I notice you mentioned using a filter in your description. I thought to do infared you had to have the sensor changed so it can only capture in infared. Is there another method?
Reply
:icondimensionseven:
DimensionSeven Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2009
Every sensor in every digital camera (except for a very few, early 2 MP compact Olympus and Nikon Coolpix models AFAIK) has a built-in blocker against the infrared spectrum: it's called the hotmirror, and it's technically an IR-cut filter (lets everything through except IR).

So, you have 3 methods to do digital IR:

First, you can use an IR-pass filter in front of the lens, that cuts visible light and lets IR light through (Hoya R72, Wratten 89B, Cokin 007, etc). This way both the filter in the front of the lens and the hotmirror in front of the sensor will work, and you'll need quite long shutter speeds to get a correct exposure - depending on the strenght of the hotmirror in your camera. Plus, you'll have no eye contact with the composition, as the IR-pass filter blocked all the visible light already at the beginning.

Second, you can remove the hotmirror: this way the sensor becomes sensitive to the IR spectrum as well. You'll get crazy tones, spectral focus differences all over the frame. This method is preferred in the Far-eastern, AFAIK (well, at least all the full-spectrum cameras I've seen on DA belong to Indonesian, Philippini etc. people).

Third, you can remove the hotmirror and replace it with an IR-pass filter. This way the sensor detects only the infrared spectrum, and both the viewfinder and the autofocus will work (to a certain extent).

I preferr and use the 1st and the 3rd methods, in this case the 1st was used.

Good luck and have fun!

which stores would you recommend getting the "IR-pass filter"?

I got my camera from Black's Photography but there doesn't seem to be any there...

DimensionSeven Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2009
I'm not familiar with Canadian photography stores, sorry! :)

But look for stores that sell Cokin filters and ask for the P007 (see [link] for the official retailer of your country), or search around for the Hoya R72 filter. The Cokin 007 is a square filter (a lot cheaper, fits all lenses with adapters but is less convenient to use), while the Hoya R72 is a screw-in filter (it's easier to handle, but fits only one filter thread size and costs a lot).
To compare prices, visit [link] for example.

Sure. You can shoot IR with any digital camera. However, I have no reliable info on the strenght of the hitmirror in the D90.
