Some magic . . .

9 Jul

As a photographer, I have always been interested in experimenting with light within images.

Recently, I was reading about full spectrum photography. For those who are not up with this term, it is photography, with a camera that has been specially converted. The IR filter within the camera is removed. This can be a very difficult task with the majority of cameras, but I discovered one camera that allowed me to convert it, by removing in total 9 screws, lifting out the filter holder, then replacing the filter holder, minus the IR filter, and re-assemble.

As a result, you now have a camera which is capable of capturing all light, not removing the IR spectrum. So, all the light is allowed and you attain images as above.

I will be going out to get some more dramatic images. For those interested in full spectrum photography, the camera I chose is the Panasonic Lumix TZ-6. A quick look online and these go for ~$500 converted, but I was able to pick one up, un-converted on Ebay for ~$50.
