gorgeous! what filters did you use on your camera?

I have an old Olympus e300, still trying to figure out IR on it! Got any suggestions?

I use a infrared converted camera, I generally use the 720nm filter (Hoya R72 equivalent)

You can try your luck with a screw on filter, a tripod, and a very long exposure, although I have never had much luck with the Olympus cameras for infrared, even with the internal IR blocking filter removed.

Thanks so much for your suggestions. I'll probably have to use my photo manipulation program to do "infrared" because I cant afford much of anything these days lol

I still love your work, its fantastic!

Thanks! It was a Nikon D40x that I converted to 720nm infrared with 18-55mm lens.

Without looking at the description, for the longest while I couldn't make heads or tails of whether this was a painting or if was it an actual picture. Nicely done sir.
