September 2020 - Infrared Image

About the Image(s)

A new technique for Cellphones. This was shot on the iPhone 11 Pro Max with a Moment protective case and a Moment 37mm filter holder. I used a 37mm, 720nm Infrared filter that i got from Spencer’s Camera in UT. ISO 640, 4.25mm lens, F1.8 at 1/15 of a second hand held. No Channel swapping of the Red and Blue Channels. Only editing was in Snapseed. Infrared loves the high noon time sunlight. I will have another September Infrared image on study group #39 - Black and White. It shows how clouds an a blue sky really takes B/W to a new level.

This was a very easy and inexpensive way to shoot Infrared live. I will be adding new Infrared images to my website soon. Comments and thoughts welcome.

I love this image and the technique. Infrared is my favorite photo expression, but I haven't been able to do that since giving up my darkroom. Now I'll go back and read your recent email with the details of this approach. Thanks!   Posted: 09/03/2020 15:26:45

Very neat. Looks like weather yet to come. Yes, Wisconsin and Illinois! Thanks for sharing your knowledge Jerry.   Posted: 09/04/2020 17:12:28

Infrared does create some interesting images. They are a different perspective for us humans. I had not heard about Moment products, so I'll need to look into that. Being able to add lenses to the 'phone might be very useful. Thanks for the tip.

Moment cases to protect the cellphone and hold their lens works and you do not need to buy their lens, just a filter holder.   Posted: 09/12/2020 05:46:38

My interest in infrared has been tickled lately by a friend. I haven't pulled the trigger in having a mirrorless camera converted. This is new to me that you can do infrared with an iPhone. Can you do it with any phone with the right filter? Very interesting effect. I was thinking it would be nice to see the original but I guess there wasn't one. I took notes from you description. Thanks for including the info.   Posted: 09/09/2020 22:18:51

Yes I think you can do it with any phone? Moment has cases for various Android phones. That is step 1 because you need to find a way to attach a filter to the phone. I have a friend who has a non Apple phone and he had an old IR filter and used rubber bands to hold the filter on to his camera because his camera lens was in the middle of the camera and he did not want to buy anything and he got it to work?   Posted: 09/12/2020 05:45:00

What an education for shooting infra-red with the cell. Thank you.I know for this group you must process with a phone (or tablet) but if you used PS could you make it even more dramatic. On the other hand, perhaps Snapseed does all that is needed.   Posted: 09/13/2020 15:23:40

Your infrared photograph is just lovely and can see this technique has oodles of potential. You're our tech explorer. Will look forward to seeing other examples. Thanks for explaining what you used to create this effect.   Posted: 09/13/2020 18:13:29
