    I've notice quite a few new people who like IR photography. I wonder if there should be an Infrared forum added? It would possibly help focus on the unique problems faced by IR shooters.

    I haven't shot more than a couple of of rolls of IR many years ago just out of curiosity. But if the experienced IR shooters here had a forum, I would certainly follow it with great interest. That way if I'm ever inspired to try it again, I would be doing it with a foundation of solid knowledge.

    I have no intention of ever shooting ULF and no plans to switch to a Pyro developer but I always enjoy reading the posts of those who do.

    Thanks guys for your responses.

    Neal - I did that website (invisible light) within a year or two of starting IR - in the hope that I could easily recall the fears and anxieties I had when starting out.

    I hasd come to the realisation that there were more myths about IR photography than facts - so I tried to clear the air a bit and present as simple a guide as I could. For example, the idea of bracketing exposures - sometime five times (!) in some books/articles, I realised was a total nonsense, particularly with an expensive film. Also Kodak's development times have always seemed way out in my experience (and others - including Alan Brown of the justmono site).

    The beauty of it all is that non-expensive equipment can do it all. A simple manual focus SLR with, say, a Sigma 24mm and a standard 50mm is ample. Alan Brown, who first steered me in the right directions, takes 90%+ of all his shots with a Nikon F3 and a 24 Sigma.

    I've bumped this back up because of the mention of creating an Infra Red forum. Sean, are you going to put this sort of thing on hold until you've decided on the re-definition of the site?

    Welcome Clive :smile: Well I thought I knew my F100 but didn't realise it could be used with Infrared film so I've learned something already and I'd love to get around to trying it for that beautiful unique look it produces.
