Nothing wrong...just didn't have the date/time set correctly on the camera. :) It was taken back in April of this year.

Thanks!

This is cool! :D i wanna try D:

When you're shooting infrared though, do you set the camera the same way you would with a normal one or does infrared change the settings? And does changing the settings make the colors come out differently(like making the trees more white)?

SO MANY QUESTIONS D8 :giggle:

So many questions, too many answers! lol!
The settings on the camera depend on whether or not you are using an internally converted camera or a filter...and also whether it's a DSLR or other camera that you can manually set the white balance. Plus, everyone takes a little bit different approach so there's always variations in how the image was captured.
For me, I use an internally converted camera that is for infrared-only and it's a point-n-shoot. Depending on which setting I use, I will get different shades of pink/red/purple. I normally will choose landscape or High ISO depending on how much light I am working with. I did a test once of the same scene and shot on every setting to determine which one I liked the best, but it still depends on the actual scene as well.
The pictures come with a pink hue to them before being processed, so it's in post-processing that you determine the color of your foliage.
Hope that helps!

sorry, that reply was short :lmao: ahaha, maybe you should make an FAQ on infrared! 8D

(anywho) I didn't know you could make a point and shoot infrared! :O So if it's a point and shoot, do you not have as much control? Cause mine sucks, but i have a DLSR so its all good ;P Have you ever tried a DLSR? i bet that would be fun. :B

This helps a lot though, thanks! :D

wow... i just noticed how repetitive my comment sounds .__. sorry about that :D

There are already tutorials for infrared on here and the internet so mine would just be redundant. :)
Yes, you just open up the point-n-shoot and remove the filter that blocks infrared light and replace it with a filter that blocks visible light. Depending on what nanometers your cutoff is will depend on how much of the red spectrum will bleed into your shot. Most people tend to prefer 720nm.
I have tried infrared with 5 different cameras. My first was a Canon Powershot S2 IS with a 720nm filter. Worked pretty good. Then I bought the Canon Powershot S3 IS and I got crappy results for infrared. Then I got the Canon XTi (DSLR) and I had to use longer exposures, but I got a really red effect that was rather unique. Then I got my Canon 5D Mark II, which isn't sensitive to IR light so I can't use it....which is why I bought the Sony DSC-W50 that was internally converted. I got it on ebay for $165 and I love that I can do shots handheld and can see what I'm shooting on the LCD screen. I wouldn't mind having a DSLR that is internally converted for IR, but my camera bag is so full of my normal equipment that there's not room for another camera body, which is another reason I bought the point-n-shoot.

Thank you, Claudia! No, we didn't go to any performances. We just walked all around the outside and took pictures. :heart: I'm sure a performance would've been lovely! We checked the schedule but there was nothing that appealed to us in the time we were there.

I've been seeing a lot of infrared photos on dA lately. Do you have a special camera for it, or is it a neat setting on a normal camera?
