365 - take 2 - 235

Well the weekend is here and who knows what it will bring. It all depends on the weather in the morning whether I wander off out on a junk hunting expedition or stay home and get 'stuff' done - time will tell.

Now however I've a bit of painting I want to do so I did a very quick pic earlier this evening and that'll be it for today.

Hopefully I will slot in some decent chunks of time devoted to my camera - oh and I need to put some serious thought into whether I'm going to get my spare body (camera that is) converted to IR - I want to but I'm not sure I want to spend £300 Smile

. . . I could do quite a bit with £300.

I think that you need to be quite committed to part with that kind of cash "just" to take IR shots.

The trouble is I have the money (Xmas cash) - apart from a new macro lens I can't think of anything else photo related that I'd like and Xmas money always gets spent on goodies!

As I say Al, ''committed.''

Personally, I've never seen much point in IR imagery. It's OK as a party trick and some of the shots I've seen have looked quite clever but I don't think, in fact, I'm sure, that I couldn't part with a fully functioning, useable-as-a-back-up body to be converted.

Is there no way that IR can be replicated in software?
I must admit that I can't recall ever seeing an "IR" filter or plug-in and I've never seen anyone mention replicating it in Photoshop. I'd imagine that it's possible.

Somewhat late but I'm back Smile

Iíve not done anything about the body yet Ė I decided that new boots were more of a priority wot with mine having no tread left and the stitching splitting

However Iím still contemplating.

Iíve never needed a back-up body yet Ė Iíve never had a camera fail on me and I always carry the X10 wherever I go even if I have the DSLR on me. Plus Iíve also got the Olympus Pen now so reckon I have enough spares should an emergency arise!

There are plugins Ė I use them occasionally but itís just not as satisfying as taking the pic in IR in the first place!

Itís something Iíll keep deliberating for a bit longer Ė at least until Iíve paid for my boots and the studio lights I bought earlier this month!!!
