Another Infrared Experiment ... (D2H, D2X)

Discussion in 'Night, InfraRed, and UltraViolet Photography' started by Boobie Joe, Jul 17, 2005.

  1. I have spent a fair amount of time taking different IR pictwith a D70s, D2H and a D2X. I did come to the conclusion that the easiest way to get IR images that looked like I wanted was with the D2H, D70s being very close. The D2X was simply much harder to work with but it could also be due to the Filter I was using.

    I did test it with the Hoya R72 and a Cokin P007 (89B) and did not
    get stunning results using the same technique I used with he D2H
    for example.

    So here are a few shots I did in the last days, first one with the
    D2X (most satisfying shot) and the rest with the D2H, did not
    bother ot include the D70s, it was pretty good and very close to
    the D2H. Next week, I'll test the D50

    Here are the shots.

    D2X ... (one shot)


    Now with the D2H ...

    NIKON D2H    ---    50mm    f/10.0    1/2s    ISO 320

    NIKON D2H    ---    20mm    f/10.0    1/1s    ISO 200

    NIKON D2H    ---    17mm    f/8.0    1/1s    ISO 200

    NIKON D2H    ---    17mm    f/7.1    8s    ISO 200

    NIKON D2H    ---    17mm    f/11.0    1/0s    ISO 200

    NIKON D2H    ---    17mm    f/11.0    3s    ISO 200

    This one has gotten a different twist and technique ...

    NIKON D2H    ---    17mm    f/5.6    1/10s    ISO 1000

    And this one is a full IR

    NIKON D2H    ---    17mm    f/5.6    1/13s    ISO 1000

    Comments welcome
  2. Very impressive work Yves!
    I wonder why the D2X didn't work for you?
    Is t the "learning curve" or is the the cam itself?
    Great work, thanks for sharing :-D
  3. It is simply not as sensitive to IR lights
  4. Does this has to do with the sensor?
  5. I think more with the combination of AA filter and Sensor.

    Beautiful Work Yves.

    Will IR work on a D100 ?????
  7. Very nice work Yves. I have done some IR attempts with the Cokin P007 and D100. The pictures turn out brick red and magenta, not «colorful» as yours. What is your camera settings for WB?
  8. HI Dao, As I explained in my other thread on IR

    fiund a good patch of grass in a sunny spot, slip the filter in, made a preset WB shooting at the grass and shoot one picture. There shouldn't be too much red.
  9. The D100 is wonderful for IR, take the technique described in my other thread for WB and processing and you should be able to have some pretty impressive shots.
  10. Great job with these I am with you I like the results from the D2H better
  11. Thx for looking Mike, indeed, it is also much easier to PP
  12. The first shot with the D2H seem to be the one that respond the most to infrared, the sky is deep blue. It remind me of the polariser, depending at what angle to the sun you take your photos, you have different response, it seem the same for infrared. I guess the best time to have the most infrared would be after a big shower and the sky clearing up fast should be very good because the rain would have taken down the floating particules in the air.
