    After the 1st IR picture I shot with D7000 I manage to get another camera - a 2nd hand Nikon D40x - which I converted to Goldie IR..

    The 1st picture I shot using my D40x..

    IR images are really interesting and unique in their own way. Thanks for sharing, Donny. I'm just wondering, since IR has a different focusing issue, how do you focus your lens when you're taking the shot? It looks too soft for me.

    Thanx Willie, if you using a converted IR camera there's no difference at all, its simple as you use your normal camera...
    If you are using an IR filter, now that's different.. I find it very hard to get focus 'cause the filter block all the lights, so you have to be on a very bright outdoor light...

    That is what I have also read on some of my IR photography books. I remember some old lenses actually have a red dot on them to set the focus on when used in IR photography.

    Yes, I've read about it too..
    Like the picture I'm using IR filter, I have to shot the sun to get focused and then recompose the picture..

    Re: Infrared Pictures

    That's great getting your 7 year old into photography because you live in a part of the world that offers such wonderful photo ops.and not just in Switzerland,you don't need to travel far to get into the surrounding countries. Maybe she'll want to be a professional photographer- to do for a living what you love doing anyway is something most of us don't get the chance to do. I love photo 2 with the orange background.

    I can't cc these,Donny, I don't have the experience and apart from that I can't see anything to critique anyway-they're all stunning.
