Infered images are fun to make. when light is too harsh to shoot visable light or just because your moved to do so. There is two techniques I use. The Singh-Ray I-Ray filter which allows us to use our uncovered digital camera as is and shoot IR. The second technique is converteing a digital camera that you no longer use.
This is about the converted IR camera. I use Life Pixel to do all my camera conversions. As far as I am concerned they are the best. My friend Tony Sweet recommended them to me and I have never regreted it. ( see Tony's work and workshop programs at www.tonysweet.com)
In our workshop programs we always try new things. Somtimes they work and sometimes they don't. Recentley I was asked if I had a converted camera and I used a ND filter on it can I get slower shutter speeds with the camera in IR. The ansewer is yes.
Here comes the Singh-Ray Mor-Slo . The Morslow 10 stop filter was used for these test and although did track quite exact as in visable light came close enough to fine tune and get some good results.
Above a converted Nikon D7000 was used. Conversion was at 590 nm. The Singh-Ray
mor-Slo 10 stop was used to slow our shutter speed down.
