So you've taken up IR, Omer. Was waiting for your first shot to come! (I hope it was the first and I have not missed any!)

Yes Birdie... Finally!!!
I had been fiddling with digitally manupilated IR images, but couldn't even get close to the real thing. I couldn't find an IR filter in my area... so had to wait a long time.

I got a chance to be in Singapore on a work trip..... so I want IR shopping ;) and believe it or not, it turned out to be the toughest thing to find..... Honestly... I just was lucky, cause when I finally found it, it was the ONLY infrared filter in the entire camera market, and it turned out to be the size I was looking for.. 58mm.

During my trip, whatever spare time I got, it went into photography... practicing and trying to get the better of it.

And yes... this is my first post of a genuine IR image.. no fooling around this time... you haven't missed any as yet. Will be posting more soon.

Thanks for the comments... it will keep me going ;)
