B&W via Infrared

Infrared photography – if you haven’t tried it, think about it. It’s a whole new way of seeing the world around you.

Made with an IR-converted Nikon D300. Post-processing via Silver Efex Pro.
Conversion by Life Pixel, highly regarded, personally recommended

  1. Hi Ed, I had Life Pixel convert my D100 to IR years back. They did a top job. Highly recommended. IR images with the D100, even though the pixel count is low, are quite interesting. LP converted a lens too and the combination is useful.

    • I’m on my 2nd conversion by them. The 1st, a D70, is still going strong (sold to a friend). I’ve used a Nikon 18-70 lens with both converts (the original D70 kit-lens which gets high marks for IR). More folks should try IR; besides making interesting images, you learn to see light & tones better which in turn leads to better compositions.

      • I was thinking of having them dome D700 but I’m not sure about it as they indicate that focus cane a real problem unless live view is used. In our harsh sunlight, sometimes it’s almost impossible to see what is on the screen. Quite a challenge. Your thoughts please Ed.

        • I did some reading at various sites and couldn’t find anything specific or useful re. the D700. Some thought it was fine & others (by their remarks probably not too bright even in the bright Oz sun) were less than helpful.

          My suggestion would be to ask Life Pixel (and also check with them on what lenses work well with the D700 and which to avoid). IMO they’re very honest and can be trusted (and are better informed than yours truly).

          Good luck.
