Since I have been telling (about) the same story to other people, I decided to make this very quick tutorial as a quick reference guide of how your photo should look like after each steps.
I can't believe this Quick & Dirty tutorial receives more hits then any of my other photo's in this gallery. I guess I write better then I take photo's -_-.
Anyway, it made me to decide to expand this tutorial a bit. Let me know how you like the result.
--- 2nd edit
Added the Post Processing Section...
--- Nota bene!!
The example photo's were NOT taken with an IR filter. Instead, I have modified my camera so that I can use lower shutter times. If you are using an IR filter, you need to use longer shutter times up to seconds!!
The colors you get and the post processing steps should be the same though!
