    I really like infrared photography, this is a great image.

  • Thanks Nigel. I see you’ve been quite busy and have made some sales to boot! Sorry I haven’t followed you lately – been occupied with my day job for two years now until recently. This was the first infrared I’ve done in all that time.

    Keep up the good work.

    This is beautiful work, I am searching for a camera for IR photography … I am in love with this kind of work … :)

  • With a tripod and a filter like the Hoya 72R you can exploit any digital camera.
    You don’t really need a converted camera unless you’re looking for the convenience and ease of normal handheld shooting speeds.

    I got to admit though that doing it the way I do is still a bit of a challenge, but that also makes it fun.

    Have fun in your hunt for the right camera.
