A photo taken with an infra red filter on my camera. It creates a great effect and I am looking forward to spring and summer so I can get those lovely white grass shots.
For the moment it gives lovely long exposures and dark sky's, against which the clouds rush by.
This is 30 seconds at F8 ISO400
Oh and there was traffic on the road, it was just too quick to register.

I like the effect, some great contrasts. I had a try at this myself a couple of years ago but got sidetracked doing other things. I may give the filter a dusting and try again.
i love the cloud's motion.
Thanks, it was the cloud motion I wanted to capture.
I didnt know you could just get a filter, I though you had to convert the camera...great effect....is it a filter for the lens BTW not the camera
It is a KOOD R72 filter, you screw it onto the lens, but to visible light it is very dark. So you frame the picture and set the camera up, then screw the filter on and set a very long exposure as little light gets through.
I bought it here
I am still experimenting but it looks interesting. Images come out VERY red in RAW but if you convert to black and white it is dramatic.
thanks ...so you focus before you attach the filter .... long exposure....how long roughly ? or is it trial and error ?
Well in daylight it is about 30 seconds long exposure @ F8 ISO200, where about 1/125 @f8 would be possible with no filter. And as it is such a long exposure/low light level it would look that the camera metering is very inaccurate.

Conversions are not always needed, if you have live view focus on the lit red led of a tv remote, it needs to be as white or Gray as possible for best effect.
A handy link that, recently paid 40 quid for a 37mm for the baby so I`ve book marked
Been having ago myself recently and this looks pretty good John.
Don`t know about you but I`m finding that setting the white balance a little green improves the outcome even more.
Thanks Paul. I have not worked out if it is better, but if I use the camera custom white balance feature and take a photo of a white piece of paper and use that as a reference it is a slightly yellow B/W image that it produces @ 1700deg K.
I have not managed to work out if it is better to use that or stick to auto WB, as in Auto the red looks close to blown, but at custom WB then the channels look a long way from blown.
I also find I have to increase the contrast in shots.
Well I guess that white balance is not that critical shooting in raw, I still mostly use jpeg
Tempted at the present time to get one of these
The only dslr where you can remove the ir blocking filter without any hard work, they call it a hack but I would not go that far.
The IR filters on my 4/3 bodies is pretty strong. My old pro one`s good though, the red led of a remote shows up as almost white, so might try that site you linked to and pick up a 58mm.
Like the composition, it is the exploding clouds against the modernist bacl and white block that works well as a juxtaposition - just got an infrared too by coincidence and looking forward to trying it out.
My Camera is still working!!
Wow ~ awesome.
a great shot in infra red and i love infra red photography myself, i have a canon 450d converted to ir and it's great fun.
