Hi Dave,

Thanks for the IR tutorial - it's fantastic. However, my images come out of the camera with purple foliage and brown/sepia skies. When I switch the red/blue in post-processing it gives me blue skies but very pink trees, not the lovely white like yours. My custom white balance shot that I took with my Canon 1000d with the Hoya R72 on is very red (I took a shot of green grass). I think that should be correct but the colors I get from my IR shots are completely different from yours as I said. See my test gallery here:http://picasaweb.google.com.au/ianmcintosh/IRTests# The gallery shows the straight from camera and after post-processing shots.

Any ideas? My email is irshots@ianmcintosh.net

cheers,
Ian

Hi Sir Dave!

You IR conversion workflow is very helpful! Thank you so much for sharing it.
My question is how to get a good custom white balance... i use a 40D but i cant seem to get results like yours. even after using a patch of grass with the R72, my foliage turns out pale green... there must be something wrong with the way i shoot my custom white balance.

i was hoping you could enlighten me on this.

thank you!

Hi Dave,

Fisrt of all, thank you very much for the very well prepared IR conversion tutorial. That was the best and the most satisfactory tutorial I have ever found on the net.

I am very new to Infrared photography. I have a EOS20D and Hoya R72. The first trials were very dark and finally get some average pictures at 20-30secs at f3.5 even at noon time!! I really wonder how you can obtain such bright pics at 1sec/f4 or 4-8 seconds!?

Thanks

I finally found a way to get thru to your family pictures - I had trouble with the password. What GREAT pictures of Eric and Alex. I'm looking forward to seeing them in person. Dave does a terrific job taking pictures.

Hi Dave,
I really enjoyed your infrareds, and am interested in what you used to make them. I just purchased a Hoya 72 myself. Unfortunately I don't have Photoshop but I do have Paintshop Pro, if there's any correlation there.
Thanks,
Kenny Carter
