Infrared photography – 2nd attempt

As the weather was nice with clear blue skys and just a few clouds I decided to give infrared photography another go. I have a Nikon D70 which is particularly sensitive to IR light, and a hoya R72 filter which blocks out most visible light.

I white balanced on some brightly lit grass, then set the shutter speed to a low value. I can’t see anything in the viewfinder when taking pictures and the autofocus doesn’t work so well, so I set the focus to infinity and hoped for the best.

The results were ok but as they were taken without a tripod so the images are a bit blurry. The pictures were channel swapped in Gimp and the levels adjusted which gave a good deep blue tone in the sky and water.
