Whiteout by KrisVlad Whiteout by KrisVlad
Sharon Woods Park, Opteka r72 720mn IR filter

I was worried that the long exposure would ruin the shot, because it was a little windy, but I timed the shot whenever the breeze stopped. It took a couple of failed attempts, but one of them was sharp enough.

Hope you like it! Infrared filters are still mind-boggling to me.

Thank you! Get yourself a nice IR filter. Hoya has the best ones! Use a tripod and just point and shoot really.

Yeah, DSLR cameras are pretty nice, but even the basic models cost a couple of hundred dollars. Luckily, as you get older that money should be easier to get.

Thank you very much! I haven't used my infrared filter much... I wonder what it would look like during winter?

Thanks for sharing! :D It still looks awesome. Maybe would be more white in winter, if there's snow, that is... :)

Thank you very much. Get yourself an infrared filter... cheap, but fun. Mine was only $20.

Noob questions: Will I have to do something with the IR cut-off filter on the camera?

IR cut off? Explain sir...

I have a very cheap Opteka filter ($20) and all I do is slap it on the lens. Set your White Balance to Black and White and just point and shoot. Exposures are typically 15-30 seconds.

So I had the opportunity to learn about the IR filters that are built into cameras and webcams during a multi-touch display table project... we couldn't get as much IR from the IR LED's to pass into the webcams because it turned out that almost all CCD can detect low range IR so most camera have what is called IR cut-off filters to remove IR from the scenes (since it is usually unnecessary because human eyes can't see it and could potentially produce unwanted glow when processed into data... as in even though the monitor can't produce low range IR it would still show the aura as white) Under this assumption, if the camera cuts off IR, then how can the IR passing through the IR pass filter reach the CCD chip... unless it is sensing the leaks, which could explain why you exposed for 30 secs for Whiteout... but I don't have enough knowledge to conclude that. I couldn't find any detailed explanation to why IR pass filters works, but many people confirmed it for my camera (Nikon D5100), so I might just roll with it Hehehe!!
P.S. sorry about this long comment :p

Oh yeah, I'm sure it would work fantastically well with the D5100. Try it! Of course, tri pod is needed.

And no worries about the long comment! I found it nice and educational actually. ;)

Haha! Thanks!! :happybounce: And yeah, I'm definitely gonna look into getting a good IR filter. The IR-pass filter we made for that same project was out of the magnetic disk from an old floppy we had to feed quite an amount of light to get through it.

Wow! I didn't know that would work. A floppy?

The coolest photo project I had to do was make my own pinhole camera. It was so cooool!

I partly wish the trees weren't that blurry.. I mean, it's not as if they really are, but I don't feel as if this is as focused/sharp as it could be there. The sky is awesome, though, and so is the water. I like how the trees separate the two and how it is dark at the top and bottom with a lighter area in the middle.

It's well balanced and composed all in all. The execution isn't too bad either and we certainly get a feel for the atmosphere and mood.

A very nice piece, all in all. :nod:

Thank you! Your comment about the blur in the trees is understandable.

The infrared filter requires long exposures (10 seconds+) so the trees keep blowing in the wind and end up blurred. This shot was done with a 30-second exposure.

Yeah, that I can understand. I did think it was the case.. it is difficult sometimes, as a result. :nod:
