Just had a K5iis converted to 720nm IR, here's 2 images shot earlier today as a first attempt between showers and with the processing.

Now those are quite something Chris - love the colours, softness (yet sharp) and the clouds - great choice of shots

Thanks John, the conditions were not ideal for IR as a mixed blue sky with white clouds would be the best.

Hopefuly with more attempts, I can improve on the shots, need to set a custom wb and tweak my procesing for a more uniform output.

Im told IR is great for nudes etc, will try have at some time 😊

I know blue skies and white clouds is the normal target for IR, but I really like both images especially the second one. Just lovely.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I am not usually a fan of IR, but these two are stunning.

The second photo is a stunner
A scene from a fairytale
Magnificent composition that works so well
Anybody and everybody would be memorized with the draw in

Wonderful tones and compositions in both images. Where did you have your K-5iis IR converted?

Advanced Camera Services in the UK ( link )

Took a little while longer than they anticipated due to the filter coming from overseas and a customs delay, comms were good thou and kept me uptodate
