Saturday, Scott Kelby held his worldwide photowalk and I went along on a trip here in Gig Harbor, Washington. We had about 25 people head out and take photographs of the local fishing community. It was a great time and I’ll be back again next year to join another photo walk.

The best part was meeting lots of new photographers from all around the Puget Sound. A few folks were from the Gig, but most were from areas like Seattle, Everett, Tacoma and Olympia. Our leader, Marvin Nauman, had arranged with two fishing boat owners to let us go down to their docks and shoot as long as we wanted. It was neat to have direct access to the net sheds and boats.

    Say, how do you manage the focus when shooting IR? You converted your camera but I didn’t. I simply use a Hoya filter for wavelengths below 720 nm. How do you compensate for the difference in focus between visible and infrared wavelengths?

    Great shot!

    Mark –

    Most of the time focus just a little bit closer than the subject. “Little bit” leaves a bit to the imagination, but I generally rotate the focusing ring a tad. Some lenses still have an IR mark on them.

    Another option is to just use a smaller aperture like f8 or f16.
