Merry Christmas.

Can you share the program you use to create the HDR images? and how many shots do you take? I would like to try a few. Yours are great.
Thanks

Incredible IR work. What an inspiration. Mighty hard to tell you technique. Can't tell on some if that camera of yours is modified or not.
Whatever you are doing, you are doing it well.
Thank you!!

James Booth06-Dec-2006 13:52
great galleries! I rally like your night shots and especailly your IR shots. Did you modify your sony or do you use a filter because they are fast exposures. Thanks. James

Hi Joseph. Your gallery is amazing. I am thinking of buying the canon 300mm f4 IS lens and this is real advertisement for the lens. I was wondering what your thoughts were of the lens with 1.4x convereter - any loss in quality and AF speed?

Thanks
Matt

Very nice images and very intensive work on them. Do you have any idea why your workflow doesn´t work with the F828?.Thnaks!
Rogers family 01-Jun-2006 18:36
We visited Atalaya in May,2006, loved it but were depressed seeing it in such poor shape. Searching for pictures of the castle in better days we found your site. All of the photos are superb. The pictures of Atalaya, esp. the infra-red, help to preserve the feeling of the work of art that it was meant to be. We'll revisit your gallery often and pass your address to family and friends. Thank you for sharing the beauty and preserving it.
Guest 01-May-2006 02:37

Guest 10-Apr-2006 02:23
Joseph,
Your galleries are very inspirational. I came across them through a search for Disney photos as Myself and family are frequent visitors and avid fans. That said, the rest of your stuff blows me away. Great work!
katherine 24-Mar-2006 22:18
Mr. Levy~You are outstanding-I will try and look at taking more exciting pictures during my next trip to Disney World-mine looked so ordinary! You have a flair and great eyes! Breathtaking photography!

Say were did that car show take place ?????
yackery 12-Feb-2006 19:21
Your IR work is impressive, and your workflow is an IR attraction. Thanks for both. I have a modified F828 and have to recombine split components from natural and IR of the same shot to get color. I use PSP 8 and am having no success adapting your workflow (it's Photoshop, right?) as I get B+W like Aaron Altman. Any suggestions?
Guest 05-Feb-2006 19:11
Hi Joseph,
I would love to talk to you about using one or more of your photos in my book, A Scrapbooker's Guide to Walt Disney World.
Many thanks,

Aaron Altman 08-Jan-2006 16:08
Joseph, first off I love your work, second off I am in need of some help. I was using your IR technique with my Sony F717 then decided to upgrade to the V3, well the technique didnt work, so I assumed it had a different color filter array like the F828, well I went and got a V1 because you said the same workflow applied, but it isn't working, just like the V3, your technique ends up with black and white images instead of color. I am afraid I am going to have to buy back a F717, but I am broke from having to buy the V3 and V1 and filter holders etc. Any help of the workflow for a V1 and V3 would be greatly appreciated.
Camilo Cano08-Dec-2005 17:56
Hi Joseph. Thank you for commenting and visiting my galleries. I have been looking at yours for the last half hour, but I have to get back to work now. They are addicting. One conclusion: I need to go to Walt Disney World with my camera... last time I was there I was 6 years old.
Downforce Photography18-Nov-2005 16:02
Joseph, my goodness. I'm so glad I stumbled across your gallery. It began with IR, and I drooled, and then your Floral Colors, which my heart literally skipped a beat. I'm adding y ou to my favorites and telling all my photography buddies about your work. Wow. I'd love to know how you get such sharp and colorful results. I use a 20D with the 50mm 1.4 and the 70-200 f4L... but all of my pictures on pbase are with the 24-85 f3.5. I can't wait to start using my new lenses... I also process via Dan Margulis' LAB method lately. Hopefully I can come close to your work... but it's your EYE that I won't be able to replicate. Thanks for the Inspiration. Rob
Guest 14-Nov-2005 03:42
Hello Joseph ! I am trying to get the results you do and I cant. I own the 717 Sony with the Hoya R72 as well as the Canon 20D but use the 717 for infared. My question is should I buy the B & W 110 Nd Filter if i already own three ND4 filters already (Quantaray) Can I use this instead of the B & W ND Filter or am I losing the richness of colors the B & W gets. Thanks Kevin
KM11-Nov-2005 16:43
Are you using the Hoya R72 for your infrared?

Hi Joseph, Great name by the way! Our family was at Disney World for Xmas last year also and your pictures amazingly make it more magical than it is. Thank you for sharing these with us. You are very creative and a wonderful photographer. Keep it up. We all agree that these are fantastic!!

Brando Ho20-Sep-2005 00:07
Hello Joseph,
You had an excellent macro gallery. great composition, color....and nice subject capture. I am thinking about a Canon 100mm macro lens. Seeing your pictures.....the lens is a must have. Thank you for sharing. ^_^
MARK KOEPPEN15-Sep-2005 15:05
Hi Joseph,
Truly fascinating galleries throughout. Excellent photography and post processing. We share much of the same lenses and I'm always curious which of your lenses you consider your all around favorite and most versitle. If you could only take one lens, which would it be? As for me, that is an extremely tough question, but I tend to carry my 28-135 IS the most,(for outdoor and indoor) but always have my 17-40 F2.8L in the bag along with a 50mm F1.4.

Added you to my fav's list.

Mark

Hi Joseph, I love your color infrared photos. I want to try this technique and I have the 20D. Would you mind telling me exactly what to buy for my 20D to try this technique. Thanks

Andriy Yatsenko 02-Aug-2005 07:41
Wonderful galery. I couldn't take my eyes form it. I wanted actually to ask you something. I want to beging IR too. I have a Sony f828 and recently I bought R72 filter. And I was kind of dissapointed becasue still the intensity of light is too strong and all my picture are overexposed. I am using Nightshot Mode+R72 and all my dark filter that I have. And you are using Neutral Dencity filter B+W 110. So you think I should buy that filter and that will solve my problem. If Yes can I buy 106 how much it is differentfrom 110. Or maybe there is something else I should do. My email is anubius@u.washington.edu if you will have time please let me know. Thanks a lot.
Guest 29-Jul-2005 18:22
Whoops! I just posted and did not post my name or email...melanie2udoc@yahoo.com and I do hope you might consider the vow renewal photography. We also plan on doing the ceremony at the Polynesian on the beach.
Guest 29-Jul-2005 18:20
Amazing photos! I also have the 20D and absoluely love it, but I have not learned nearly enought about using it yet. Do you live in the Orlando area? I will be doing a vow renewal next October 2006 at Disney World and I wonder if you would be interested in doing my photography? We will be having the reception inside the Great Movie Ride...so it might be a fun event to add to your portfolio. Thanks again!
Laura 29-Jul-2005 16:31
Joseph,
Your work is amazing! I had never seen any works using the infared technique since hearing about it in a photography class...it is really fascinating how you can alter a photo with it...I love how the palms look like ice! I also enjoyed your shots from WDW...how did you ever manage to get shots of the castle, spaceship earth, and the sorcerer's hat with so few people in the shots? I aspire to have photos that look 1/4 as amazing as yours! Thanks for the inspiration!!!
Guest 29-Jul-2005 15:31
Joseph,
Your photos are absolutely beautiful. I would love to use some on my desktop. Would you allow that?

Thanks

Hello Joseph,

You have some very nice GALLERIES!! Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing.
Ben 30-Jun-2005 08:40
Hey, Awesome pics. I noticed you have a few cameras the including Canon 20D and Rebel 300D.
I'm just wondering if theres a big significance between those two cameras in terms of quality and performance.

Im considering getting the Canon Rebel XT (350d) which is simular or the 20d (or perhaps a Nikon D70. I've tried out the RebelXT and D70 and the Nikon D70 feels better (its bigger and heavier which makes it seem higher quality and has a better feel in my hand) but the guy at the store says the Canon camera is better, all those cams make awesome pics though.

Feel free to email me with your preference if you have one :)
Thanks
Guest 27-Jun-2005 17:42
Joseph,
Great work here, I especially enjoy your Brookgreen Gardens infrared photos. Brookgreen is a wonderful place, each year on vacation at Litchfield, my wife and I spend a couple of days with our cameras roaming the Brookgreen grounds. You have peaked my interest in infrared now!
Thanks!

Hi Joseph, thank-you very much for sharing the steps on IR and brought us to the art of Infrared. You have a great and beautiful portfolio.

Need your advise... normally my shot is red in color and I'm not able to get the result of what you are having. I could not get the blue sky too.

What white balance settings did you set on your camera ?

Many thanks.

Cheers ! Bobby

How did you control Shutter speed in your IR pictures ? In my Sony F717 the shutter speed go no lower than 1/30s, but in your gallery I see IR pictures with 1/10 Sec. Also how do you get rid of the two red beams of light comming out of the F717 ?

thanks
Jaime

Joeseph,
Hello,
I did som IR shots today with my 828 and when I tried to process them
using your tutoral, all they did was turn red during the "master" hue/saturation step. Could I possibly e-mail you one of them and have you process it to tell me what to do different? Your shots are among the "coolest" i've ever seen and to come close would be awsome! I really want to get this figured out!
Thanks SO much!!

Joseph Levy19-Jul-2004 08:15
Hello , yes I do cover my IR sensors with a piece of sheet plastic which I have cut to fit in the lens barrel. I shot in P mode and always in nightshot mode. Hopes this helps.
Guest 18-Jul-2004 18:53
are you taping over the sensors or using a donut cutout? Your initial picture is so much sharper than mine but cleans ok after many tweaks. What mode are you shooting in and are you using Nightshot? thanks
Zman 25-Jun-2004 12:50
Ok I also have tried your Infrared tips with my OlyE20 and dont even get close? First of all my images are red staright out of the camera. What are we doing wrong? Come on Joe help all of us out.

Jeff 12-May-2004 22:02
Joe, Best IR pics I have seen. I've tried to reproduce your workflow posted on DPReview with my F828 ( Hoya 72IR, 8 stop ND filter, nightshot mode) but only really get BW versions. The initial green tint changes, but no blue skies. Any suggestions. Thanks again for such great images. Jeff

Did you take a photo of a Wooden Indian for a catalogue of the Museum of American Folk Art in NY? There is an image in it signed by a certain Jioseph Levy, taken in 1998, and I am looking to get an original copy, if possible. Please let me know if yes or no.

Thanks in advance / Bob
