Are IR shots difficult / cumbersome / annoying to set up? I'd really love to try IR photo someday.

I would say that IR shots can be cumbersome and difficult at first. You have to set up the shot without the filter (the filter to the naked eye is opaque), change the custom white balance to a uniform green color, screw on the filter, and expose for the right amount of time, which depends on the weather. Also, if you live somewhere that is not sunny year round (I live in Portland where it's rainy almost 45% of the year and overcast even longer) then you can only really do IR during the sunny months, which is something to take into consideration. Once you've gotten the hang of IR, though, it's incredibly fun. It captures landscapes so completely differently and opens up a whole new type of composition to play with.

I have never used infrared film before, do you have to use long exposure times?

Matthew-T Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Thank you! This was actually taken digitally with a Hoya R72 infrared filter, exposure time 20s. I'm completely unfamiliar with infrared film, but have heard that it is a bit tricky to expose for.

Gotcha ok. It must have been a pretty calm day, I only noticed a slight blur on the leaves, but for being a 20 second exposure that is impressive. =)

Looks almost like cherry blossom time in Washington.
It might be interesting to see the un-manipulated image also.

This shot is absolutely gorgeous!! I imagine this place must be very pretty in autumn.

It kept prompting me to change the date, but I was too lazy to deal with all the buttons. :slow:
I've never had the pleasure to visit in the autumn, but I will most definitely come October.

That will be so beautiful!! Is this a place that you go to with your family as a tradition?

I've only actually been here once before. I randomly stumbled upon it one day whilst searching for a place to take my visiting grandparents and only thought of returning the other day. It's sort of an obscure park here in Portland, which is ironic because it's probably the most beautiful.
