Guess who got another old camera converted to infrared and can now do 700 AND 550nm? Damn, that red leaf effect is powerful, even if a bit tricky to optimize in post-editing...

@eyeling wow.! Hast du die Kamera selbst umgebaut?

@leah Nein, habe dazu nicht genug Erfahrung. Sven Lamprecht von irrecams.de macht das professionell und ist sehr freundlich im Austausch. Und da Urlaub grad nicht möglich ist, wurde halt in Fantasiereisen und Kunst-Therapie investiert.

@ij Lol. Bonus für Fast-Überfahren-werden am Highway des Kapitalismus (B290)

@eyeling .... Trecker, SUV, oder Proll-BMW?
Ich bewundere dein Engagement...und die Fotos.

@ij Nö, LKW, die Autobahn wg Gebühren meiden wollen. Anscheinend fahren nicht nur die Hohenloher wie Raubsäue ;). Erhöht an der Straße war leider der beste Spot für das Bild und Sicherheitsabstand war genug (zumindest für alle, die *nicht* mit dem 18Tonner in die Senke ballern müssen. Dann sind 1,5m nicht mehr viel.).

@will @eyeling Managed to get approximatly 20 out-of-critical-focus IR pixels on a hawk today!

@coral @will. Ugh. Yeah, animals in IR can be a pain. Lovely capture, though!

@eyeling ha! Diese Hütte habe ich heute gesehen. Zufälle gibts...

@dadosch Nicht? Und man fragt sich, wer dieser ACAB ist... :D

@eyeling
Hey, I just added all these images to my wallpaper folder. And the 2nd one is my new wallpaper 😀

@eyeling
Wooooow! Ich glaub ich muss doch ein bisschen Geld ausgeben und eine von meinen DSLRs umbauen lassen! 😮

Bis zu welcher Wellenlänge ist die Kamera mit der du das gemacht hast jetzt sensitiv?

@Mopsi Bin auch hin und weg vom Effekt! Mit neueren Kameras auch nicht mehr so verrauscht wie vor 10 Jahren.
Hab auf 550nm umbauen lassen, dann ists mit 700nm Schraubfilter davor auch noch für weißes Laub nutzbar (Der Experte meinte, es kann dann Probleme mit dem Autofokus geben, bisher aber nichts gemerkt). Allerdings ist Nachbereitung bei 550 deutlich zickiger, grade nach dem Kanaltausch muss man im RAW noch am Kontrast und Schwarzwert fummeln. Nur für Leute mit Bildbearbeitungserfahrung!

@eyeling
Am Raw rumspielen macht mir keine Angst 😊 Danke für die Info! Tolle Bilder!

@Mopsi Super, dann wirst du Spaß haben! Kann für dem Umbau Sven Lamprecht (www.irrecans.de) empfehlen. Gibt 1 Jahr Garantie und verkauft auch Schraubfilter.

@moiety Here's an FAQ on IR photography: youtu.be/2Y2KmE5wyzo
Every camera has an IR block filter inside that has to be removed and is then replaced by a filter blocking parts (or most) of the visible wavelengths. You can do it yourself, but if you don't have experience rather leave it to someone who does. There are 2-3 ppl here in Germany who do it professionally, I guess there will be in your country, too (NL?).

@eyeling thank you so much for sharing! I have an old Nikon D70s that might be cool to use for this. It was my first good camera and I’d love to give it a new life. Might be a cool project. Thank you for the inspiration ✨.

@eyeling these look AMAZING! :-D I didnt realize they had multiple gradients of infrared but it makes sense given how light works.. hadnt considered this. was this expensive to do for the camera? is the lense just getting a coating or what? and thank you =)

@panda_roux Thank you. I'm not quite sure what you're asking. The red foliage photos were shot without any external filter.

@eyeling oh okay. I was asking what external filters are being used, but if there aren't any that's good to know as well!

@eyeling no filters for blocking visible wavelengths, even? That's impressive. I need to research this.

@panda_roux Ahhh, now I get what you're asking. My D7100 is converted, meaning the *internal* IR block filter was removed and replaced with an 500nm visible wavelength block filter. No further filters needed. But I did indeed use an additional 700nm screw-on filter for photos featuring white foliage.
Converted cameras do not have annoyingly long exposure times, so no tripod needed.

@Miredly Nope. Full digital. The 550nm + channel switch imitates aerochrome quite well.

@eyeling these look amazing! like false-color photos of nebulas and stuff :)

@eyeling How can I do this? or, where can I buy this? I want to take photos this way!

@zenraged if you'te photographing digital, you need a filter in or in front of your camera. There's also quite a bit of post-editing involved. This video is a good stsrt to learn: youtu.be/2Y2KmE5wyzo

@eyeling That last one in all pale colors with the dark sky looks awesome!

@eyeling 😯😯😯😯they're absolutely beautiful 😍

@eyeling I love these! Is it Ok to use as a background image?

@jrn thank you. Of course, knock yourself out.

@eyeling that's gorgeous!! reminds me of my attempts 10+ years back.

@dontoverthinklife Why not rediscover it? I, too, already dabbled with IR in the last decade, but lost track of it.

@eyeling I might. and I'm still enjoying photography but my true focus is moving forward with my music. this is the language that allows me to truly express myself and reach people.

if you have time, give it a listen and let me know what you think: dontoverthink.life

..and thank you for encouraging me!
