Is it Snowing?


Nikon D70 @ 18mm, 1 sec, f/8, ISO 200

And the Hoya R72 Infra Red filter arrives!

I ordered this filter off ebay from some guy in America. It was my first time using ebay so I was slighly apprehensive. This filter seems to be really hard to get in the UK and it's at least £60. So when I saw this going for $60 (£34) new I thought what the hell.

So now it's time to play. I only managed to get a shot of my back garden, and using a PP technique I've read, it came out pretty cool. Can't wait to give this a proper shot in good conditions. You get great conversions to b+w as well.

I'll keep you posted!

Nice work, John. Do you have a link for the PP technique? I bought an IR filter for my Fuji, but never managed to get any of the images to look particularly good!

Hey, thanks Thomas. I got the technique from a thread over in the D70 forum... some useful info if you've not seen it before. Click here for the link.

I had another play with it yesterday but the conditions weren't the best. I seem to be getting quite good b+w results when using auto WB (i.e. when the picture looks completely red).

I should have said that I've not tried it with my Fuji yet, but I imagine the results will be similar. I know Guilherme has been using the R72 for a while on both his D70 and S7000 so maybe he's the man to ask!

Cheers

Excellent link! Thanks for that, that's exactly what I'm looking for. I was just out taking a few quick snaps with the IR filter on my lunch break, and it seems to be pretty much the same as the Fuji, although this time I have RAW and I'll be able to get the WB sorted. I need to try again someday, with a tripod!
