Dimension Seven by DimensionSeven Dimension Seven by DimensionSeven
June 2008, Mecsekpölöske, Hungary.

This shot means a lot to me. It took me lots and lots of tries untill I got the result I've wanted. I even got a sunburn on my neck and right arm just for standing in the midday sun so long...
Yes, that ghost on the photo is me, it was done with a self timer and standing still for ca. 10 seconds, then running out from the frame. NO Photoshop was involved - except for removing the hotspot, the hot pixels and adding some additional contrast; all the toning work was done in RAW.


Take it for what it is: ars poetica.


Nikon D80 - 18-70 @ 18mm - 30 sec - iso 100 - Cokin P007 infrared filter - NEF - Capture NX 1.2 - PS/CS2.

Can you explain the meaning this picture has, for non-poetic people like me? :)

The photo is a self portrait in a surral, ethereal surrounding. A place where I'd like to be rather than reality. It expresses my desire to live in a more ideal world than I live in now. ;)

Hey, this Cokin P007 filter, is it "P" size? I have Z-Pro holder Cokin system, do you think I could get one of these filters for Z-Pro?

Thanks!

Yes. [link]

(however, I suspect that for the price of that, you could get a 77mm Hoya R72 too, but that is just guessing.)

what does removing the "hotspot" mean? what is a hot spot?
i love it. you're brilliant.

:icondimensionseven:
DimensionSeven Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2008
Hotspot is old term from analog photography, with digital cameras it's only a problem with infrared captures. Most lenses exhibit an overexposed, low-contrast circular spot in the middle of the frame in infrared, some only when stopped down heavily. It's caused by the fact that lens coatings are not optimised for infrared wavelenght, but visible light. Some lenses however, seem to be free of this problem (the cheap Nikkor 18-55 kitlens or the legendary Nikkor 17-35 f2.8), due to their very few lens elements or special design (respectively). 18-70 is not the best lens for IR, but not the worst either (my Sigma 10-20 is worse for example, and the Sigma 105 macro is unusable for IR).
