Ah, the joy of budget photography purchases from online auction sites – sometimes dud, but much more often a way to explore a new approach without laying out too many dollars. Today the snail infested letterbox held (a luckily not too snail-gnawed) parcel containing a small 720nm infrared filter. Now I can use my Lensbaby bendy lens with my IR camera.
Only the dog was available to model just now, but this weekend I’ll try some more ambitious content. I cheerfully anticipate the process will be equal parts enjoyable and frustrating, as focus can be hard to achieve, and the strange distortions can be lovely or loathsome. At least the filter fits!
