    IR photos permanently Why Take Infrared IR Photos Infrared photography darkens clear blue skies a lot but leaves the individual clouds very bright Infrared photography leaves foliage grass plants leaves looking bright white It allows you to take photos with longer shutter speeds and gives your photos an awesome look in general Nikon D50 ISO 200 1 2 second f4 8 This camera is very sensitive to IR light Can my camera take IR photos Older Nikon cameras like the Nikon D50 andD70 work very well with the Hoya R 72 Infrared Filter However a lot of newer camera sensors now have a filter that blocks out IR light in front of the cameras sensor to a degree In order to find out if your D SLR can take infrared photos find a remote control that goes to your TV or something similar Take a 1 second exposure During that exposure click the power button on your remote pointing it towards the camera lens When you look at the picture on the LCD preview screen you should see a light coming from the front of the remote If the TV remote light looks very dim the exposure time will have to be longer when using an IR filter BUT if the TV remote light looks pretty bright your camera is well suited for infrared photography Try doing this test with different lenses as well some are better for IR photography than others If you don t see anything coming from your remote you won t be able to take infrared photos with your camera using an IR filter You can however get your camera s sensor modified by LifePixel Conversion costs about 300 500 and shutter speed times are normal as is focusing Your camera will be permanently modified for infrared photography But if your camera passed the TV Remote Test then you can go the easy cheap route and start taking infrared pictures with the Hoya R 72 Infrared Filter Mine was 54 for a 52mm sized filter Some lenses just don t work that great with IR filters and create hotspots I myself however haven t had any problems with hotspots in any of my photogs before Here is a list of cameras and lenses that are good for IR Good Bad Infrared Lenses List Good Bad Infrared Camera List Taking Infrared Photos Using the Hoya R72 Filter Hoya R72 Filter When you get your filter you will notice it looks almost black Because the filter is so dark you will need to focus your scene before putting the filter on Once you have your scene in focus screw your filter on and then switch to manual focus You CAN use autofocus with the filter on but you have to be in broad sunlight for this to work and it isn t always accurate Lenses focus differently when using an infrared filter If you want technically sharper results you can rotate your focus ring about 1 millimeter away infinite symbol depending on your lens Some lenses will have an infrared symbol on the lens itself which is useful Use that mark if it does If it doesn t though you ll have to play a little guess and check game to find the infrared focusing spot You CAN use the cameras autofocus it will just be slightly out of focus I ve taken many photos like this anyway Try a few test shots using the autofocus you may find it acceptable Also try using higher F numbers to increase the depth of field that might help a little bit Infrared Photography allows the use of longer shutter speeds You also CAN take infrared pictures without using a tripod but it is not recommended You will need to use high ISO numbers and low F numbers and those usually are not good for landscapes Just avoid all of that mess by using a tripod Your photographs will look a lot more professional Now if you haven t noticed by now the Hoya R72 filter is DARK This will substantially increase shutter speeds If you need shorter shutter speeds you can raise the ISO number and lower the F number I usually don t do much of that myself though If your photos are coming out too dark just bump up the EV until you are satisfied The shutter speeds will be quite long when using the IR filter depending on how sensitive your camera is to IR Setting The White Balance for Infrared Photography After taking some photographs with your filter you may have realized that your pictures are completely RED In order to fix this just meter and set the White Balance with your filter on Google How to set white balance with YOUR CAMERA MODEL for instructions if you don t know how to do this already HOWEVER a lot of cameras cannot set extreme infrared white balances in camera If you can t get your camera to work just shoot in RAW and set the WB later in post processing with a program called UFRAW This method should work with any camera UFRAW is way better than Adobe Camera RAW because it can set the white balance for infrared photography which A C R can t properly do Editing IR Photos in Photoshop The popular look for infrared photography have a blue sky instead of brown Image on the left is before the red blue channel swap image on the right is after it It s quiet easy to obtain this look In Photoshop go to Image Adjustments Channel Mixer Make sure the Output channel is selected on Red inside of the dropdown box Type in 0 for red and 100 for blue Next select the Blue output channel but selecting it in the drop down box Type in 100 for Red and 0 for Blue You ve just swapped all the red colors for all the blue ones Feel free to experiment with other channel
