Pond midnight IR by joysabin

Pond midnight IR

I had to get a crown repaired yesterday so, of course I brought my camera and stopped by the pond to grabs a few shots. This is an IR pano of the east side then edited using the color efex in the NIK collection.
This is beautiful. Fav!!! Do you have a camera converted for IR or did you use a filter?

@kvphoto I do have a converted Sony A37. I used Life Pixel ( https://www.lifepixel.com/ )- but I also would recommend ( https://www.spencerscamera.com/ ). Spencer's cleaned my IR camera at least once. I have found that my camera attracts a great deal of dust so I clean it with compressed air frequently. The dust could be because I live in Arizona but, who knows... I did start with filters but with little success so I went the conversion route. You can also find these converted cameras on eBay now and then. If you do take the leap, my learning curve has been up and down but don't give up, its a great deal of fun.

Thank you all of very much. I am most grateful. I was worried that it was too dark but gotta experiment or I don't learn.

So very thankful and most grateful. Pushing the envelope of IR post processing worked this time.

Love the effect. Great reflections, too.

A very "cool" effect, makes for a strikingly unique image!

Splendid surreal shot, could be an opening shot in a thriller...with much to be unveiled.

@joysabin I was looking at Spencers and I wondered if you have a recommendation for the best internal filter? There are so many choices I have no clue.
November 18th, 2020  
@kvphoto I'm confused, internal filter? I had my sensor swapped to IR. I did use Hoya 760nm and 950nm. The exposure times are much longer using filters and I didn't like to being able to see the image until after the exposure is made. I found this book rather helpful ( https://www.amazon.com/Infrared-Photography-Artistic-Techniques-Brilliant-ebook/dp/B019M8MZ3U/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=IR+photography+books&qid=1605714262&sr=8-3 )- looking forward to your IR stuff PS- if you have any other questions here's my email

@joysabin thanks so much Joy... most appreciated. When I looked at my old camera I was considering converting (Canon 7D) it gave me a bunch of choices to make regarding reinstalling the dust prevention along with selecting a specific filter... I just need to research this and figure it out. I've loved F. Bailey's IR shots and now I've discovered yours... very excited about that! I need to spend some time figuring it out. Thanks so much for helping me along the way... I've got so much going on right now this will have to wait for awhile.

so cool!

Totally filmic... the pano helps reinforce that - nicely done.

Massive fav!!

@onewing @fbailey @vignouse @pistache @s4sayer @aikiuser @stiggle

Thank you all so very kindly and truly grateful for the favs and comments. I continue to be both amazed and surprised by the ways that IR post processing can open up and stretch am image in ways I never imagined.
