Nice work Fred. Love those canals.

I received my full spectrum converted Sony A7R back yesterday and I'm going through lenses and filters from yellow to deep IR to see what they look like.
Some quite surprising colours so far!

Not sure my wife will like this one. It shows every one of her 61 year old wrinkles
Good thing she doesn't look at this site...........

Some of the test shots using different filters and lenses.
The Lensbaby combined with IR is interesting. The sharpness of my Mamiya 645 80mm Macro is great and it really pops with IR.
The yellow and orange filters allow a few more colours and are interesting as well.

1. IR720 on lensbaby. The deeper IR images don't have much colour and I'll have to work out some B&W tonal ranges. Green foliage in the background.


2. Mamiya 645 lens on A7R. Colour shifted for green plant detail. I mount these on a Mirex tilt/shift adapter so lots of options for focus, corrections, stitched panorama etc


3. Lensbaby colour shifted


4. Lensbaby colour shifted


5. Mamiya 645 80mm Macro lens Orton Effect and colour shift

Years ago, I bought a 2nd hand Sony infrared light off an auction site (HVL-IRM). It's designed to clip onto the hotshoe and is powered with a huge rechargeable 5500mAh battery (NP-QM91).
I was going to use if for lighting shots on B&W infrared film. Sadly, it just wasn't powerful enough for that.
Now, with my 'new' converted A7R, I've pulled it out of the drawer and charged it up. Even on low power, the 8x IR LED's are really bright. Dialed up to 10 and it's hard to look at in the viewfinder. Of course the lights are barely visible looking at it normally and to actually notice it; you have to be really close.
This could be an interesting walk around light for IR street shooting or for some fill light in outdoors shots and portraits.

Lovely set of images Michael.
Infra red normally helps smooth complexion & skin blemishes, did you have a blue filter or dual pass filter on for this portrait? - Most normal coloured filters transmit NIR in addition to their visual transmission & UV or blue tend to show blemishes. This seems to have aspects of both.

The name of the silver fern certainly looks appropriate!

FWIW my wife has never liked any photo I've taken of her!

Thanks: I'll get better as I learn what I can do with various lenses and filters.
I have lots of great shots of my wife over 45 years and she even likes some. Not this one though. It was shot through a red filter so yes, some other wavelengths were getting through. That's the understanding process.
I have put together all my warm toned filters from yellow to deep red as well as all my IR filters. I'm trying as many as I can with each lens to see what works best. So far, the Mamiya lenses have surprised and the little Lensbaby Sweet35 seems to have better image quality than with film. My old Rokkor lenses look great and, so far, I haven't found any that flare except my Minolta AF 16mm fisheye but that always flares anyway if the sun is in the shot. It's built in yellow and orange filters actually work quite well.

My aim is not to produce the same, or similar, effects with IR but to explore a range of effects including what will look like 'almost' natural colour but with some kind of pop.

Thanks Mike!

I have never done a similar test with different filters, just went out and started shooting, but it's a good idea.
Have fun with your new IR toy!

You don't regret your A7R conversion I guess?
Both work well in BW with the cloudy skies.

No, I had to stop doing the event photography I used it for about 3 years ago after yet another surgery. I barely used it after that and usually reached for one of my film cameras instead.
Digital IR is a huge step up from film IR however and it's kind of reinvigorated me toward the Sony.
That said, I have ordered a set of UV/IR cut filters so that I can use it for normal colour shooting when I want to. In the end, I'll probably end up buying another Sony FF and will keep this as my dedicated IR shooter.
