I blame Leo Laporte.
Yesterday afternoon, I was standing in a squelchy part of the croft, waiting for the heavy tripod to sink into the marsh. My inheritance does remind me of a scene from "The Holy Grail"
So. I set up the camera, switch off the autofocus and carefully screw on the Hoya R72 infra-red filter. I'm not sure what to do with it afterwards, and merely remove the colour and do a bit of level balancing.
What's this got to do with a chap half-way round the world? Well, I caught a podcast where he talked about photography. Then I followed up the photographers that were out in Australia with him. I was amazed by some of the Infra-Red images that were in amongst the others.
Every now and again, I would do some more research into the subject. Eventually tracking down an affordable filter. But I never quite got round to finding out what the software processes were.
I'll have another look tomorrow. Unless the weather's nice, in which case I'll be outside. Doing things.
