I love that song, even if it is kind of dark/depressing. I think one has to be able to deal with it, when listening to it, it does not make me feel bad anymore :)

Thank you for commenting. Actually I moved a bit intentionally to get that fuzzy look. I think the image is more interesting when everything isn't pin sharp.

Hey! Awesome photograph... I saw you used a Nikon D80. Apparently a D80 has a low-pass filter that blocks infra-red light from transmitting to the CCD sensor. I've taken some awesome shots with a D70 but then got a D80 and have been struggling to take IR pics ever since. Did you modify you're camera? What on-camera settings did you use?

:iconmatiassieppi:

The most inportant thing is to measure the whitebalance, with the filter on, from green grass or something else green. I always use ISO 100, that's why the exposures are usually quite long. Usually I focus without the filter,obviously then it's easier to see trough the viewfinder. They is no modifications in my camera. Processing IR photos is a bit more complicated than processing normal landscape shots. Here is two good turorials on IR photography and post-processing: [link] [link] . I hope this helped you.

Cool Thanks! So I read about manually setting my WB right. So how I understand it is: I take my camera (D80), which has a manual range of numbers, as you know. Do I then just go in front of a big, green leaf and keep on photographing and manually changing my WB until the leaf is white (in colour)? I do have a R72 filter but I used to use a D70 and didn't need to play around with the WB too much.

You measure the WB by setting "pre" from the WB settings, then point the camera to green grass/leaf. Then hold the WB buttom down, "PrE" starts to flash on the LCD panel on top of the camera. After that take a shot, there should be "Good" flashing on the LCD panel, now you have measured the WB correctly and are redy to shoot. If there is "no Gd" flashing, then you probably have wrong shutter speed.

This is brilliant, I love everything about it, the sky, and water looks especially nice.
How did you manage to get the person in that focus, with everything else so crisp, clear, and sharp?

With long exposures it's easy to get that blurry look. I was also moving just a bit all the time. Thank for commenting.
