Re: Use a dark IR filter

Thanks for the C&C. So.... I should try some more plant life rather than man made objects?!?!?!

Hi Jarrod,

Yes, shoot plant life. Trees, flowers, lawns and landscapes make good subjects. Search for a tutorial on what the IR color spectrum is and what objects give it off. Unless your camera is modified for IR light, use the darker of the two common IR filters. It's like a 10 stop ND filter but it does allow IR and some red light to pass. Long exposures too.
