    NSFW: Carly in IR

    Last Saturday I did some experimental shots with an IR converted GF1. There is no retouch other than B&W conversion
    This is one of the results:

    I really like the IR effect on skin. Looks like a fine marble sculpture, her veins kind of add to that effect.

    For my taste, I would prefer straight up B&W (mainly because I don't really care for orange).

    IR gets to be more than skin deep doesn't it?

    @Vivek,
    Yes it does,
    It is an interesting effect, skin texture goes away, vermilion areas go white.
    The shot was taken with studio strobe and the WB on the original looked almost like a cyanotype.

    @tokengirl,
    Heck I have played with several colors, but I thought that the effect was not as well showcased in B&W for this image.

    It felt a bit weird.
    I was shooting with the DF/P65+ and then pulled out the GF1.
    She is a photographer too, now she wants one. I counted the GF1s before she left LOL

    Well said. Bob, nicely done. The IR adds an interesting effect.

    This is excellent. As others have mentioned, the IR gives the shot a distinctive, dynamic look. Great model. I am usually not a fan of tattoos on models, but in this case, and I imagine that the IR had something to do with this, the tattoo really stands out against her porcelain like skin, and adds a great artistic touch to the photo. The lighting is perfect, right up to the gorgeous shadow on the background.

    Nice work.

    Well said, Rick.

    BTW, IR does quite well for Street also. You should really get a G1 or GF-1 converted for IR, Rick.

    That's a gorgeous shot, Bob. I love the added IR effect. Sharp, yet dreamy. Good call on the warm tone also.

    Thanks, folks,
    I need to play around with the processing a bit, but I am convinced I will use this technique more.
