Manish Says –
I do Landscapes and Astro Landscapes for my love of Nature and infrared is something that brings out the artistic side in me. I take Landscape and Astro Landscape pictures to show how beautiful the Nature is and Infrared photos to show how I imagine this world to be. Infrared photography takes me to my own dream world.
I use a full spectrum Canon 550D. I have various filters that I use for Infrared. I mostly use 700nm, 590nm and 830nm. 700nm gives me subtle colors while I use 590nm for bright colors in the final picture. I use 830nm for Black and White infrared photography.
I recently bought a Canon 6D and getting it converted into full spectrum as well for Infrared and Deep Sky Photography.
