Re: Introduction to affordable IR Photography

Not a bad start, John. Of course you picked the wrong time of year to start doing this as leaves on the trees are a great subject for IR. I can see that the branches were moving around during the exposure too.

Raring to see more!

I'd check, but I think the G1 may be more sensitive than the E-3 for IR, so that may work even better (plus contrast AF is great for IR photography!)

Good point, Andy, but I was itching to use that new lens!

Re: Introduction to affordable IR Photography

This excellent thread has gone a bit quiet so I hope you don't mind if I post a couple of non Oly pics from today. The first is the straight shot, f8 at 1/3000 I think. the next is the IR through a 760nm filter. 1/45 at f4 (may have been f2.8). Both pictures have simply been converted to jpg from DNG and changed to greyscale, then downsized and exported in from Lightroom. No other tweaking involved.

The first thing I notice is how much less sharp the IR picture is. I doubt if the camera shake was a factor as all the IR pics are similar and the lens is certainly not underperfoming at f2.8 so is the poorer quality implicit in using IR or down to the filter, just a cheap chinese ebay purchase.

Secondly, the topic doesn't seem to suit IR too well, what are the factors in choosing a good subject for IR?

It's odd that I have a seagull in about the same place on each picture, bit blurred on the IR version due to the slower shutter speed.

Fascinating, IR filter on Santa's list. Thank you for some food for thought.
