Re: infrared conversion with Nik
In reply to Toermalijn, Aug 21, 2012

actually it is an infrared. I am using an old Nikon d50 which does not filter out all the IR. then I put on a cokin 0007 filter to remove other light. I cant see through the veiwfinder so I use f8, compose and focus without the filter, then put the filter on for the shot. I use manual and do a series of exposures until I can see it on the screen. Crude but it does work. The "look" seen in most IR shots is acheived by tweaking white balance and tint, on raw files. If you are really serious about IR you would need to have a camera conversion done. Thanks for the comments.
