No worries. Now that I've read through it, I'm reassured. I appreciate the author's emphasis on the "unknowns" of digital IR photography. I've been reading up on the subject and feeling more confused than enlightened. For one thing, there are a lot of books and articles about using IR filters on regular cameras. That requires a tripod and very long exposures - and you're pretty much limited to photographing static things like buildings, because even a breeze will make foliage look blurred. As David Busch says in a book he wrote ten years ago, those shooting techniques "would have bored Ansel Adams." By the way, that book was: David Busch's Digital Infrared Pro Secrets (David Busch's Digital Photography Guides). It's got a lot of technical information and I'm keeping it as a reference, but it predated the appearance of mirrorless cameras and today's wide availability of camera conversion services, among other things.
This book is much more up to date. Karen Dorame describes her experiences using three different IR-converted cameras, including post-processing information. I appreciate the examples of shooting different subjects and under different conditions. She even includes some "what went wrong" examples, which is gutsy. Mostly, after reading this book, I'm less anxious about using my IR-converted camera when it's delivered. Dorame makes the very important point that digital IR photography involves a lot of unknowns and surprises. The effects of IR conversions will vary from camera to camera, and while there are some general principles to keep in mind, there's no substitute for getting out and shooting with the camera. You just have to learn by doing, how a specific camera and lens combination will work.
Now I'm looking forward to getting my converted camera and discovering the world of IR photography for myself.
