Re: February Photo Assignment - Discussion Thread

Boy it has been a long time since I have been on Retouch Pro, so much has changed, for the good but of course this was always a great site.
I started here to ask a question if anybody was doing dedicated infrared work on this site. First off found this great thread on photography and the challenge, great fun. So here is my question, anybody doing digital infrared here? I recently had my D70 converted to a dedicated infrared and sure could use some help and support.
Here is the info on the pic I am sharing, it is the life guard towers at Huntington Beach State Park, California. It was taken with a Nikon D70 converted IR, custom WB on gray card, ISO was 200, f16 125s shot in raw. PP was channel mixer method. Nature here is bright sunshine even in winter, it might sprinkle tomorrow which will be exciting, there were many people swimming and surfing on this beach today at 4:30 in afternoon. Sorry to have mentioned that to those of you in bad weather. So the nature of things here is sunshine.

Re: February Photo Assignment - Discussion Thread

I'm not a really big fan of IR but have seen some amazing stuff over the years. Now that digital has entered the picture, "doing it" in Photoshop is easy. I admit to have digitally created IR with success. If you want the how to, I can provide info.

On the other hand, check out http://www.photosandphrames.com/ . My two friends who have this site do a lot of IR work with a dedicated digital camera. I'm sure they would be willing to chat with you.

Platscha, it HAS been a long time, nice to see you again!

I have an Olympus C2100 UZ (UZI) which didn't need conversion to do IR (at lower resolution than your D70, of course), and I have done some IR also. Between you, Janet and me, and our collective links to others (Daniella from DPreview/PBase always blew my socks off with her IR work) ought to be able to give support.
Daniella: http://www.pbase.com/zylen/infrared_with_dimage_7
Another IR link: http://www.rideau-info.com/canal/images-infrared.html

Platscha, if you want to submit an image to this month's Assignment "Nature at Work", please post it in that thread. Hope this gives you another reason to visit us on a daily basis.

Re: February Photo Assignment - Discussion Thread

Thanks CJ, yes a long time, I did put a photo in the thread just for fun.
Judy, thanks for the information, I know how to do IR effect in PS as a matter of fact I have tried several methods as well as using Nik effects but so far I have never found one that is really the same as true Infrared, close but not the same. I do have a dedicated camera so need to learn how to better utilize that.

Mold? Too funny. I'm going to have to clean the cat hair off mine. I have the perfect idea. The only problem is getting the subject to "pose".
