This is a piece thats been in the works for some time now. Someone once said to me that you cant shoot IR with the canon 5d, well, here's the proof that it can be done.

When i first approached the spot with the boat, the light was poor, the scene didn't look too interesting, but i thought, hey better give it a go. After some tinkering with different ideas i suddenly remembered my infrared filter sitting at the bottom of my cam bag. And the wind was nowhere to be seen so the conditions for IR were perfect.

Once back into photoshop i aimed for a colorful/juicy look to this one, trying to enhance the dreamlook i was aiming for.

The picture is made up of 2 pictures blended and tweeked together, the reference and the IR. The reference was shot at 70mm, ISO 250, shutterspeed 1/50s and aperture at f/5.6. The IR was shot with the same settings except the custom whitebalance and the 124s shutterspeed :)

Hope you guys like this one. I had a lot of fun making it.

Tools of the trade: Canon eos 5D, Canon 24-70mm f2.8L USM, Hoya IR, Photoshop CS2, coffee :D
Working time: 7 hours, shooting included.

Ooooo! Thats amazing! Colors are superb, and really sharp details! =)

What you mean cant take IR shots? Aint it just a filter? Is it camera dependent?

Want to try it out you see, but have no idea how it works.

124s... wow! I guess you can't shoot IR with a 5d, unless you're very very Very patient ;)
nice effect though. I love the colours and DOF

its ironic you know, when you really want to shoot ir, you either have to buy a dedicated cam, or just get an old one that has a crappy anti-ir :) but give it enough time and you'll get the right amount of light through. thanks for the comment :hug:

Dette minner mer svært mye av et foto som ble publisert i "Fotografi" for en god stund siden. IR bilde av en båt, lignende fargetoner, men en helt annen vinkel og komposisjon. Det er et fantastisk bilde og det at du har brukt IR virkelig bidrar til å få frem en mye mer spennende stemmning enn et "typisk båtbilde"...

I love the angle on the boat and chain, looks really really cool :thumbsup:

What bothers me is the interaction of colours in the water, it kinda make me feel "um... what?".
Don't kill me hehe, it's an awsome shot.

Really nice to se things startin go come from ya once again.
Oh yea, those IR filters, how much are they? I'v been wanted to try one for so long, they're so frikkin cool :)

thanks for the comment LR :hug: the price on the ir filters depend on how big the filterdiameter is. it shouldn't be too expensive unless you're carrying some serious heavy duty equipment :)
