    • Hello Margaret πŸ™‚

      Thank you for your comment !!

      No, you place an IR filter : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infrared_cut-off_filter

      Over your lens, you shot with a wide aperture f16-f22, for wide focus ( Set you lens at infinity ) and a long shutter speed (8 to 30s – try different ones) , you need to put the camera is on a tripod, the original image is red but you convert to black and white !!

      Have a go , its great fun!!!
