I am very novice in photography and I am attracted by the infrared photos that I see online.
I decided to try to experiment with something cheap to see if I had any hope in this hobby or not. I have an old Sigma SD14 because it does not require conversion because the internal filter can be simply displayed. I also have a Hoya R72 filter. Use the lens of the kit, for the moment.
Now, for some reason, all my photos end up being horribly overexposed, but with at least some information in them, or the total trash with literally no information about the photo.
I've tried to combine ISO, F and shutter speed with different but equally terrible results. I know I can not expect much from the cheap old camera I had, but it should be able to produce Something usable, at least according to other experiences that I find online.
I've uploaded some RAW samples and I would be infinitely grateful to anyone who would be able to give me a clue about what I'm doing so deeply wrong. How is it that even on the best of my photos, if they are bluish – everything is also bluish, or if they are reddish – everything is reddish (see related examples). On the other pictures I see, the trees are white or pinkish, but not the buildings.
Is it possible that I simply damaged the sensor so that everything seems too bright?
Terribly sorry for the breadth of my questions, but I miss the vocabulary for even better to express myself. I'm learning, but I need direction …
