    Infrared with GRD II

    Near Orotina, 20 min. away from the Costa Rican pacific coast. On the quiet days following new years eve celebration.

    Hoya Infrared R72 filter with a 37-46 step-up ring to fit the GH-1 hood & adapter. Half a sec. exposure (took several tries before the kid kept still !), F3.5, ISO 200, camera on a tripod w/ 2 sec. self timer.

    Learned not to trust the GRD2 distance scale when shooting IR... no matter how far away the focused object was the scale always indicated between 30-60 cmts !

    Its a pictorialist dream come true. Still have to experiment with it a bit more, but after six years in Canon DSLR land with no chance of IR, I am pretty impressed.

    FYI this location is just a few hundred yards away from the ONE MINUTE LONG EXPOSURE WITH THE GRDII I posted yesterday... The two pictures are very different, not just in subject matter but in style and form... The GRD II lets me shoot & interpret RAW like a big DSLR...!

    What an amazing picture. I'm not usually all that taken by IR images but this one is beautiful.

    Thanks a lot for your kind words people!

    I dont consider myself a landscape photographer... Must be the little Ricoh making me feel like I discovered photography all over again... (come to think of it my daughter has been asking why I take the camera everywhere and shoot so much lately...)

    In case someone wants to experiment with IR and the GRD these CS1 Adobe Camera Raw settings are a good starting point: Temperature 2000, Tint -150, Exposure +0,50, Shadows 14, Brightness 100, Constrast +100, Saturation -100.

    I then gave the shot a Curves adjustment in order to slightly increase midtone contrast. The three control points were: Input 203, Output 194, Input 93, output 103, and Input 29, Output 26.

    A Color Balance adjustment of 10, 0,-10 for the Midtones and again 10, 0, -10 for the Highlights provided the classical gold toned look.

    Regards
    Jorge
