Infrared Dreams

I finally decided to have the old Rebel XT converted to Infrared only. It was originally going to be used by my wife, but with her personal time at a premium and not much interest in photography, I decided to get it converted. I had been contemplating the conversion for over a year now and thought I would jump in with both feet and go with a B&W only conversion. I sent the camera off to LifePixel for the 87C (B&W Only)conversion. It took about 2 weeks from the time I sent it to them to when it arrived back home. The conversion process didn't take long, shipping was the hang-up.

Here are a couple of infrared shots taken during my lunch hour. I haven't had much time for photography, nor the motivation to get out, so excuse the not so exciting compositions.

Suffice it to say, my motivation with photography has been renewed. Unfortunately I don't have time now. Hopefully I will be able to free up some time and experiment with infrared and get some better shots up.

Great stuff, Denis! What a brilliant decision to have your camera converted to IR. I am disgusted by your posted images, though - only because I am jealous of what you see on your lunch break! Always good to hear a friend being excited about a new cool gadget!

Excellent Denis! Very tempting to make the leap myself but I have put a self-restriction on new purchases for now. I'll just have to admire yours for a while. I'm jealous of your lunch-break view as well!
