I recently took a walk over Fleet Common, where I used to go as a child when visiting Grandparents. As a child I would run and play, pretending to be a soldier with a stick for a gun. On this walk I went armed with 1 lens ( my Canon 17-40mm L) and two camera bodies. My Canon 5D Mark IV and 720nm Colour Infrared Converted 20D. I will start
It’s been a while for me to take some Infrared images, but a walk out looking for fungi in the New Forest provided a good opportunity to bring my converted Canon 20D camera along to take some Autumn shots. As per usual I experimented with different white balance’s whilst taking them, and the processing used some Photoshop actions I have to reverse colour channels, and produce faux film infrared black
I recently bought the LAOWA 15mm f/4 Wide Angle Macro Lens, and so after snapping some normal shots, thought I’d give it a quick try out with my converted Colour Infrared 20D Camera. Here are my first results and impressions of this lens, when used for Infrared Photography.

Here are 3 different images, processed with various Topaz Plugins, along with the original image in each case for comparison.
With the beginning of November, and a reasonable day – a stroll around the New Forest’s Anderwood Site is a pleasant walk. Taking along a converted Digital Infrared Camera added to the fun. The Cameras filter as mentioned before is a Canon 20D with an Enhanced Colour Infrared Filter (equivalent to 665nm Filter). The trees and foliage provided interesting and varied scenary, with the leaves reflecting some of the light
As a macro and infrared enthusiast photographer, what better way than to photograph when combining the two photographic disciplines ! So on a recent visit to Alners Gorse butterfly reserve this summer, I just went armed with my Infrared Converted 20D Camera and a 100mm macro lens and a tripod. (A slight lie – I took a normal colour camera too – just in case of something special). My 20D
