A new view – near infrared…

At long last I took the plunge and had an old camera converted to near infrared πŸ™‚ Β It is genre I have long admired and more recently the beautiful work of some fellow bloggers – Infrared Robert, Cybeleshine and Jan Flieger to name but a few. Β I took my first images on Friday and in the last 36 hours I’ve had a lot of fun and an equal amount of disasters. Β I thought I would share these two taken from outside our house this morning (not the most exciting scenery!) …I have SO much to learn πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Good work – you are doing exactly as I did when I began – shooting close to home and then running inside to process – before long you will be a pro and I cannot wait to see what you capture in your surrounding areas.

    Thanks Robert. I’m looking forward to spring growth which isn’t very far away – I think the vineyard will be a very good source of images to start with πŸ™‚

        Are you almost done with pruning or more to go?
        I know you’ll have fun with it. I think IR is going to suit your style very much πŸ™‚
        I owe you a reply πŸ˜‰

    I think it’s because I love the snow so much and IR makes things look like they have snow on them, makes me love these photos. This makes me want to get a camera and convert it to IR and do some of my shots with that. I was going to take my Nikon D7000 and convert it but I ended up selling it instead. Can’t wait to see more from you in the future! πŸ™‚

    I must admit to not being a fan of infrared but I’m interested to see what you come up with. Maybe you’ll convert me?! πŸ˜€

      Hi Noeline. It isn’t everyone’s cup of tea that’s for sure and I have seen some that is really awful…I don’t intend on going down that route and I suspect I will be using it judiciously πŸ™‚
