Is there a certain way you have to take pictures (ie custom settings)? Or can you just go about like you are using a normal camera and keep the regular settings?

With a modified camera, your settings are, more or less, the same as if you were shooting with an un-modified camera. You have to be careful of exposure though as what you think would be a proper exposure using visible light may either under or over expose you shot in IR. It's best to keep a close watch on the histogram.

Something else that REALLY makes the post processing much easier is to shoot in RAW. Correcting the WB in RAW is so much easier than when working with a JPG (plus you have more data to work with).

I LOVE IR IMAGES, Converted a brand new Canon 10D back in the day to IR and still use it. Truly fun and makes normal shots MUCH more interesting.


I will try and dig up some of my IR images and post them. For the most part we use IR for venue shots and album design not so much for portrait photography.

I agree, that photo above is simply amazing! beautiful! I'm thinking of converting a 20d to IR myself.

I cannot for the life of me work out whats going on in the second photo. Is it just me or does it look like she is floating! Where are her feet? I know i may regret asking this but Im stumped.

AdamR,
She jumped, he took the shot while her feet were up in her dress during her jump.
I agree it gives a great "spooky" feel to the image as it makes her look like a lost bride in a world devoid of natural color awaiting her always "soon to be coming" groom.

Awesome shots man!!
Always wanted to convert my 350d to IR, will do it myself as I'm based in South Africa and there are no suppliers here that do it.
No too difficult though , just need a steady hand and some time. :)

Hm...I'm seriously considering this. But I need a backup before I use more money to buy a camera to convert. 2009 should be a fun year.

I would, but I need a 30D or 40D as my primary, a new lens whether it be the cheaper 85 F1.8 or expensive 17-55 IS. Then I can get another camera, maybe, for the IR. I have Tax season and a graduation shoot. Who knows? *ponders*

Wait, never mind. I'm getting married, she won't let me. :( At least I can afford a honeymoon.
