Nick,

I enjoy your black and white photos. Great looking boy you have and all thanks to your wife I suppose. <grin> You said it. I will have to take your word for it.

Your ideas for IR has my mind spinning and looking at things differently. boyzo does the same.

I am ordering the hoya ir filter and will be trying it out. I also got a tip from a photographer in my area that also works in a shop that told me to use desaturate to take all the color out of the shot. Looks wicked as far as the shots he showed me in print that he took with his Nikon 5400. I now have a source to consult in my area as well as what I have found here. If it weren't for the posting here I would have never thought of just going around my area to find someone that can be as helpful as you and quite a few others here on the board.

Thank You,

Tom

Hey Tom, thanks for the kind words. You too bobc! Thanks for passing a long that desaturate tip. I can't wait to give it a try. We all pass along little tips, and it's how we collectively accelerate our improvements both in terms of techniques and tools. In this regard, forums like this, and folks like ya'll are invaluable.

Tom...

Thank you VERY much for this tip. Here's the bolt "desaturated" in Photoshop. I like this effect a lot!
Another tool for my ir arsenal. Thanks so much for passing it along! I like it better than the first shot I posted.

Nick

Nice shot of David... B&W rocks its still in vogue.
I would have framed it a litle diff. to include finger tips of the hand...
The space in front of subject is important and the gaze of the eyes makes it.
lovely...

The first shot was posted to illustrate how using an aftermarket flash (in this case, the Vivitar DF 200) with the weaker flash models (FZ1, FZ10) really helps improve indoor shots.

That is exactly what I want to do with my FZ-15 and external flash, your shoot is excellent!!! External flash and your talent really make a difference

I have already ordered my L-bracket.... the talent was out of stock :G

Please, Mr. Santos, false modesty doesn't become you , I've seen your many excellent posts. What kind of L-bracket did you wind up getting?

Thanks, nooner. Are you still Gandalf? (Scrolls down...) No, I see you're the Lone Ranger today :lol: For this one I used The Image Factory plug-in. But to be honest with you, I like the free one from OpticVerve(?) just as well.
