first of you need a very bright sun.
i normally set mine to f/7.1 - f/8. ISO 400. speed is around 1-2 secs.
i found it easier using Cokin P007 filter rather than R72 hoya or B+W coz it's less dense.
also wait till the wind stop blowing.
For the color, first do a shot using the filter. its gotta be all red. and use it as a custom white balance.
next use the CWB and shoot the scene. The colors are going to look awesome.
Thanks anyway for the comment
yea the R72 is not for 300D.
Regarding the Ir mod, i hasnt removed it yet but as soon as i get a second body .....I WILL...
no problems..good luck with your IR tryout and thanks again for visiting my gallery.
This is absolutel amazing .. its delightfull to my sci-fi sense how out of this world photography can look through a camera lens
Amazing work .. what specific cokin filter did you use? I've only a select few but this one definately look cool
