Does anybody here shoot in infrared with an UNMODIFIED Canon 7D?
I just got an infrared filter, and tried a couple shots (Manual mode, f/4 15", ISO400, tripod -- sufficient to see a fairly clear image in the LCD) . However, I'm not getting the dark skies and white foliage effect. Post procession was essentially nothing but desaturating 100% to create a B&W.
Comparison of identical shot without filter at proper exposure, also 100% desaturated looks nearly identical.
My thoughts are:
1. There's a further trick to doing this in-camera that i didn't do.
2. There's a lot more to post-processing the images to bring out the expected infrared effect.
3. The hot mirror in the 7D is just too effective, and what little deep-red visible light gets through the filter is, indeed, what primarily comprises the image.
