Re: please share your ir photo technique

Andy,

This is my current procedure:

717 with emitters blocked.
IR 87C with ND2 and / or ND4
ISO 100
EV 0
Nightshot mode
Convert to grayscale via gradient map (Black-White)
Adjust Contrast/Brightness
Run Neat Image
Sharpen

Hope this helps. I picked up all of this info for this procedure from STF posts.

David
