Fantastic IR shot. They always look so dreamy. Once you get that D80 fixed, man shooting in IR is going to be so much cooler and not such a pain in the rear. Can't wait to see those results too!

Great work Dave. How do you shoot in infrared? Is it a filter? I have heard of people concerting cameras so that they only shoot infrared.

You can do a conversion (my D80 is currently away being converted @ a cost of $325 US)
They remove the IR cut shield from the cameras sensor and replace it with a small IR filter which means you can only shoot IR but you can use normal 'hand held' shutter speeds etc.

This was shot with a Nikon D70 (the best DSLR for infrared) and a lense mounted IR filter - these filters are a very dense red and cut out most of the normal light spectrum and just allow the IR rays through.
This means you have to tripod mount and use long shutter speeds - you also have to focus/compose your shot prior to mounting the filter as its so dense you cant really see through it properly. Altogether its a bit fiddley but the results can be stunning :)

(you also have to do a lot of postwork on these images in the colour mixer etc)

Thanks Dave. It sounds a lot more complicated then I had imagined. It sounds like it will be a lot easier when you get the D80 back.
