Photography Question 
Debbie Crowe

Infrared in Digital?

I saw some unbelieveable pictures this morning using infrared. The scene was at a cemetary taken of a stone lion and done in black and white. I have never seen anything so interesting. The sky around the lion was just as interesting as the stone lion. How is the world is this done? I have a Canon XTI. Am I a candidate to take pictures like this?
thanks, Debbie

  I don't think so..I know many of the point and shoots can do IR with a filter, but I think Canon DSLRs have to be converted..Somebody will come along and tell you for sure.

  I enjoy shooting IR, but I had my Digital Rebel converted to IR...several hundred dollars. Otherwise, you have to use a Hoya IR filter and lengthy exposures...too much trouble! Or, use an older style camera that's more conducive to IR. I have some links at home I can send on IR photography, if you're interested.. Just hit my contact button and let me know.

Also, there are software filters that replicate it's possible somoene used software.
