    Default Infrared~Kent Ridge Park

    Didn't know Kent Ridge Park has such a great view...







    The rest of the pics are here
    Just a small recount of my phototrip....

    While climbing stairs to a higher point, saw a shelter (the last posted pic above) that was about 200m from the stairs.
    I saw a lady was bobbing up and down.
    Was wondering what she was doing until I noticed a man below her...
    They must be really concentrating as I was wearing Teva's and walking noisily. I did what everyone here would do.....

    I walked on... after some shooting I came down the stairs, of course, they were gone.
    Took a pic of the shelter. Got curious and walked to shelter.
    U know what I found?

    The couple littered the park with a tissue that was wet!

    Morale of the story, please don't litter the park!

    P.S. true story but please don't be offended

    I believe photographers should have ethics (opps spelled wrongly :P)...
    I must say, they are very daring.

    you should have kept the ethics in your attics...
    and take a shot.

    haha just kidding, I wouldn't take such a shot too, although in the first place they should be more prudent in their private workout. Reminds me of the time when I found a used condom in a park shelter.

    ark, it's nice to see that you're back with your IR shots again.

    Default How to infra-red? what tools?

    I read abt infra-red photography. What did you use?
    some special infra-red filters?
    I am using a digital SLR.
    Although some say digital SLR no need filters as Adobe can do all wonders and tricks, but for infra-red I think that nothing beats the real thing.. is filter still necessary for infra-red to occur in digital SLR?

    Pls advise on tools, tricks and any tips for infra-red photography.


    Of cause, ethics are important for photographers
    But next time when you see woman bobbling up and down with man below, switch your role from photographer to pornographer.. I am sure you can come back with some saucy pictures to share.
    And no guilt abt photographer's ethics... ahahhaa

    Hi Tweek, thanks

    Well between you and me, I did not have time to remove my R72 IR filter.... (realised we r in a forum... Duh!)... joking

    Was waiting for the super bright (and warm) weather to shoot, difficult to find time to shoot too... but found that the bright sunlight did havoc to my wb settings from previous shoots. Should have resetted wb again... Cheers

    hi,

    was it straight TTL metering or did you have to make special timed exposures?

    Hi 10Der, for me, I'm using Hoya R72 Near-Infrared filter with Fujifilm S602Z. The few tricks I've learned on IR is that
    1. you need a tripod, and try to use timer to shoot as I'd some "blurred" shots due to "trigger happy finger".
    2. Try to shoot with the sun behind you.
    3. 12 noon does not produce good IR shots, I think it's due to the reflection of the sun's rays.
    4. I love to compose flora's, water bodies (like ponds or canals), the sky (great to shoot with lotsa clouds) and some structures like buildings. the different IR reflection qualities will produce interesting results
    5. I find that the results are better when using program mode and custom WB settings.

    Have not use digital SLRs before, so can't comment, but I guess the R72 should do the trick.

    Check this IR FAQ out.

    Hope I'd helped....

    Hi Keltzar, I had just used the program mode, no special timed exposures needed.

    How did you "set" the custom white balance?

    Hi StreetShooter,
    The last time I set it was by taking the reference from the sky.
    But I guess the correct method is by using white card....
    Still figuring it out
