See the earlier post on Digital Infra Red photography DIGITAL INFRA RED. Modern digital cameras are not suited to infra red photography as the sensors have very low IR sensitivity but the early Leica Digilux 1 digital camera takes surprisingly good infra red images-- if used under ideal circumstances .The sensor in the Digilux is very slow anyway by current standards so with the deep red (almost black) infra red filter on the front of the lens it really struggles in anything other than really bright light and produces very "noisy" images .
I took it out on a short local walk today and came back with these infra red land and seascapes.I find them quite appealing --in their place.
Really I should have used a tripod and set the camera on the lowest ISO setting
but it was just a spur of the moment decision to try out the infra red
filter which "surfaced" during my mega clean out a couple of weeks back so they were all hand held on the highest( 400) ISO setting.
Colour TIFF files converted to black and white JPEGs in Adobe Lightroom .The Digilux 1 does not have any facility for taking black and white images.
