Infrared Photography - Post your "invisible world" pictures here

Post your infrared photos, along with 1) camera type, 2) focal length / lens, 3) exposure settings and 4) the filter type if possible. Have fun everyone.

Something to get the ball rolling:

*ist DL (the sensor gets very dirty on this cam - no hot mirror filter), 50mm, around 1/125, Hoya R72

Cool pooch and neat industry shots Jeff - did you use a filter of any sorts?

Bare lens. The filter is over the sensor in place of the AA glass. Sometimes though I wish I had gone with just a plain glass so I could use filters. The advantage here, I guess, is that I can use the camera as normal (see through the viewfinder, etc). It's just that the results are different from a regular camera. From there I can do the same conversions one might with any other IR setup.

One thing that really surprised me was how well it does with Snow.

Very good thread subject matter. And some good examples.
I started late last summer and through the fall using an Opteka R-72 IR filter on usually a Zenitar 16mm although have used the 18-55m kit lens mounted on a
K200D or a *ist D ( the latter seems to have a more receptive sensor with this filter combo). Long exposures no less than 10 but normally between 15 and 20 secs. Which can be cool at times but a pain on windy days.
Here are a few from last year.

Have you tried any night sky photography? You may be pleasently surprised what your cam cam see. And, that's a very good way to do a conversion - I simply ended up making a viewfinder out of an old plastic camera which mounts on the flash shoe The cam I had had the glass completely removed and the plane of the sensor moved ~1mm towards the lens (that was fun in itself).

Aside from a couple night shots as the one shown, no night time sky attempts. After taking that photo, I figured the flare would be tremendous but it could make for some interesting stuff. If I ever see a clear night sky again, I'll give it a shot.

This is the thread I've been looking for!
I had one of my K-01s converted to IR a couple years back.
I'll no doubt be posting on here regularly
