From my experience, IR photos are taken by long exposures. So that bird and wave photo (and few others) seems like a semi-IR or rather black and white photos.
Nevertheless, great photos 🙂

@Ilan – yeah, if you look at the tutorials in the footer, we have a section on using photoshop to get the effect so I am positive that one at least, is a PS job.

With an IR converted camera you can take images with short exposures. I have taken photos hand held at 1/1000 second at iso 100. Using Ir filter on non-converted camera require long exposures. See an example at ;

Hi llan and admin. All of my images on this page (including the bird and wave pictures) were taken with a camera that was specially modified to take infrared images using fast shutter speeds. The camera was modified to remove the internal IR blocking filter found in all modern digital cameras, and replace it with a visible light blocking/IR pass filter. Although I also use photoshop to balance and improve the dynamic range of the images, there is no “IR effect” used here. Thanks for your interest!! Zach

Zach – thanks for stopping by and explaining. Great photos and I especially like the one you took of the wave. 🙂

Infrared images are my favorite. They have this dream like quality you don’t get with other mediums. Beautiful photography! Thanks for sharing.

I have this crazy idea of taking nightshots in the milky moonlight, using infrared. The idea being that infrared will enhance the effect of the moonlight. Anyone have any experience on this topic?
