That is a WONDERFUL photo.

I don't know Sony cameras, so I also don't know if the one you used is digital. Is it? If so, it reminds me of something I've wondered about for a long time: how easy is it to take infrared photos with a digital camera? Do you need to have a b&w mode on the camera?

I used a Sony F828 which is digital.

It is quite easy once you learn the settings.

Not all digital cameras will shoot in infrared.

I do not shoot in black & white mode. Rather the images I get are kinda green/grey looking in the camera.

I use my photo edit to convert to black & white and then add contrast till I get it to where I like it.

You will need a Hoya R72 IR filter, a #8 ND filter and a digital camera that will record in infrared. I use to use a Sony 717 but recently up graded to the F828.

There are other brands that will also do IR photography.

I did a little research after posting and discovered that the Oly E-20 can do infrared, but that was the extent of the information. I know very little about filters, so your mention of the neutral density filter in addition to the IR filter has me curious: what does it do and how does it affect an infrared photo?

The camera will shoot in "nightshot" mode. Used for shooting in the dark at night.

But to shoot in daylight using nightshot mode and to convert the light spectrum to IR you need the IR filter which filters out everything except for the IR part of the light spectrum.

When you use the IR filter only in nightshot mode the image is too washed out or over exposing. In nightshot mode you cannot make camera adjustments to anything, so what we do is to add a ND filter #8 which darkens the exposure the same as increasing the shutter speed.
