    Re: How about a more fun with IR thread?

    One sample from the Angenieux 25/0.95 (Type M2), stopped down to f/2.



    Hacked G1, Angenieux 25/0.95, f/2, ISO100, 1/2500, Heliopan RG780.

    The filter (58mm) was held in front of the lens as I do not have a means to attach it now. No hood either. I plan to fix both the the issue soon (would make the lens even bigger).

    Very nice shots Cindy. I like the way that Pen 20 performs on your G1. Classic IR subject material. I took the shot below with my M8 a couple of years ago in the old Christ Church cemetary on St Simons island in Georgia. The algae and lichens create some interesting patterns on these old headstones that are only visible in IR images. A bit spooky.

    A wonderful IR portrait Vivek. Very nicely done and such a beautiful smile.

    Thank you, Carl. I really like this one. The light is much less contrasty than it was in my shot. I agree that old cemetery stones make a good subject.

    This is really a sweet portrait. I enjoy watching you push the envelope when it comes to IR.

    Re: How about a more fun with IR thread?

    We went to the beach/pier, earlier today. A bunch of snaps from there (all with 20/1.7, Hoya R72, polarizer, hacked G1, except for a few later).









    Switched to the longest FL lens (Fujinon-TV 75/1.8) I had with me briefly.


    "Comfortable Shoes"


    I could have benefited from even a longer lens. I did not expect anyone would be crazy enough to surf in the cold weather conditions.



    Back to 20/1.7


    Canal and boat load of cheerful folks.




    Flea market




    Back to my usual.

    Re: How about a more fun with IR thread?

    I showed my modified pop up on G1. Here are couple of samples for its uses. Without the light from that the Dandelion heads would look like featureless mush.





    This guy was making snaps of the glass building for its architect with a medium format cam.



    ..in the middle of a junction.

    Vivek, This is a really nice set. I really like the first shot of the photographer. The composition is really nice. The second photographer shot is very amusing.
    I really like the look you are getting in your IR photographs.

    Re: How about a more fun with IR thread?

    Just a heads up here - I've sold my 1DsII IR camera as I found I was processing 99% of the images in B&W I felt I was getting as good an image with either my M9 or P45+ thus it went to a new home. I'll continue to visit this thread from time to time however my days of shooting IR are now over.

    Re: How about a more fun with IR thread?

    Don, I think you did well. I am unsure how sensitive that Canon CMOS sensor is to IR.

    If I had a P45+, the first thing I would do is to rip the IR cut filter on the sensor..well..hopefully soon.

    Re: How about a more fun with IR thread?

    Thanks Vivek and Cindy.....coming from you guys, it means a lot.

    I must admit, however, I did very little color tweaking.....this is pretty much straight OOC with just some selective sharpening.

    I had not a lot of hope for any IR shots.....it was late in the day, an hour from sunset and slightly overcast. It was more a meditation after a very long day in the office.

    Still so so much to learn.

    (On a completely unrelated note, I am really liking "monza" adapter. It seems like it is breaking in after some initial stiffness.)

    Regards.....R

    Rich, The Contax 90 on the Monza adapter is really doing a good job for you. The bokeh of your G lens is lovely and the sharp is sharp.

    Konica Hexanon 57/1.2

    This lens has a completely different color cast than the Contax G's (which the only way I can describe it are more neutral)....which lends itself to more opportunities in PP.

    Re: How about a more fun with IR thread?

    Cindy.....thank you.

    It is such an interesting process. I am finding that different lenses have different "color" signatures. (I think on several it could be the thorium coatings, but I need to test this). These can be diminished or eliminated in C1, but it opens the door other options in post-processing.

    I am also discovering (which everyone probably knows already) that these color casts are more apparent late in the day. Originally I was shooting everything at midday for the "classic" IR.....but now find there is more subtlety in tones later before everything gets muddy.

    Regards...R

    Just got back from a vacation in New Zealand a week ago, and just started processing photos today. I found that tree ferns are really spectacular in IR:

    Re: How about a more fun with IR thread?

    I promise I'll stop with the ropes.....but I was on the island of Lanai yesterday. Back in the days of pineapple operations, barges filled with over a thousand tons of pineapples would leave the island daily from Kamalapau Harbor. During peak summertime production, barges would leave every eight hours bound for the cannery in Honolulu.
    Operations ceased in 1992, moved offshore where labor is cheaper. These ropes which would lash the barges and tenders to the dock now sit idle, bleaching in the sun, probably never to be used again. Some are coiled and bound neatly, others tossed as an afterthought.

    Last one....Contax 45/2

    Looking at this thread after a good while away. I haven't done any IR since I sold my converted 10D awhile ago. Now--it makes me reconsider yet again whether to have my GF1 converted to IR. Some terrific shots here.

    Very nice series with the Contax lenses Rich. This one is really special. How do you like the 35-70 on m43? I have also been processing most of my IR work from the G1 entirely in LR2.7 with minor tweaks to WB and saturation (usually desaturating blue). I like the warm reddish midtones and resulting split-tone when blue is pulled down.

    Thanks Carl.

    I like the 35-70. It is a beautiful lens. I am finding that is does a better job with color on the m43 (nicely saturated), than with the IR converted GH1. It seems slightly flatter and less contrasty. The killer lenses for IR so far for me are the Contax G 45/2 and 90/2.8. I do, however, like the size and versatility of the 35-70.

    It is nice to hear that you are doing your RAW processing in LR2.7. It really helps the workflow. I am using C1 to convert, into LR for about every else....and then into CS4 for sharpening. I am not a sharpening adept and I can not live without Photokit Sharpener. For my IR, I finish with a few favorite LR split tone presets (not on this picture) and print.

    Re: How about a more fun with IR thread?

    Three shots from the G1-IR and Contax G 28mm f/2.8 Biogon during a walk up to Ithaca Falls. Quite a few recent Cornell grads gathered there for a last look at this Ithaca landmark before leaving town.

    Carl, I can see why the grads would come to take a final look. It is a beautiful place. The second image is my favorite. The people in the last two certainly add scale to the scene.

    Matto, Your photo is beautiful as well. I really like the blurred water and your excellent composition.

    Carl and Matt.....nice renditions of similar subjects.

    Carl.....I like the way you framed the diagonal stair steps on the last pic plus the overall tonality of the image.

    Matt....everything works in that image....very surreal.
