Playing with Infrared at Girraween. This is above Wave Rock along a very cool little canyon carved through the granite.

    Stunning indeed, when I saw the thumbnail I first thought you posted a pic of the snow covered alps.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Kane :) Not too bad given I guessed the composition.
    IR is definitely interesting that way.
    Thanks Tim :)
    Yeah you wouldn't guess it was quite warm eh ? ;-) Got a bit sunburnt on that walk, and dehydrated too (despite drinking very frequently).
    Now that'd be something, snow covered Girraween ;-) It's happened before, but not since about 1984 I think.

    I picked up a 52mm thread Hoya R72 Infrared filter for $25 off a mate a while back. It only fits the nifty 50 (50/1.8) and is difficult to use (you can't see anything through the viewfinder when it's on the lens), but you get some interesting results.

    I was led to believe that the IR filters don't work all that well due to anti IR coating on the sensor or some such - this would seem to disprove that theory!
  • David de Groot said:
    It's true actually. Instead of a nice short exposure, the anti-IR filter means that you're stuck exposing for quite some time (sometimes over a minute - this one was 20secs). If you get the anti-IR filter removed, you can shoot pretty much the same exposures as daylight, but you're stuck only doing IR as your normal exposures (without the filter) are all stuffed due to overexposure in the IR band.
