This shot has been published in several magazines, most recently in Air Mexico's inflight magazine.
I first used infra-red back in the film days when mostly it was the back and white film I was shooting.
Using the Nikon was a blessed release from the myriad of challenges of infra-red film, which included….
..wrapping the camera in tin-foil to stop y¥the heat from your face fogging the film
..wrapping the developing tank in foil to avoid the heat from your hands fogging the film
For white balance when using this Nikon DSLR I was using the 'custom' feature and setting WB from any nearby patch of green grass. It created shots that were predominantly of a brown spectrum, which allowed me – through Photoshop – to create 'false colour' shots like this.
Great fun andI would love to get one of my cameras converted, which is easy enough and not crazy expensive.
