    Hi all, I am Mark Hilliard and am from Pawleys Island South Carolina. I am retired from Eastman Kodak and run The Lens Work Gallery here. I have been a photographer for 43 years now and professionally doing it for the past 10 years. I do not usually shoot people, rather I concentrate on nature, land & seascapes and nautical. I shoot Canon 1d bodies but recently have acquired 2 PEN bodies along with lenses and accessories. I have had them both converted to Infrared, an E-P1 to 720 nm and an E-PL1 to full spectrum (see blog below for more info). They are great cameras and lenses!

    No, converted cameras are not sensitive above 1100nm. For heat you need a special sensor.

    Mark, thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself here.:smile:

    You live in a breathtaking area - Pawley's Island! Looking forward to seeing it through your eyes, and I hope you'll post some of your photographs either in the Genre galleries or set up a personal gallery on the site.

    Mark, Welcome from Charlotte. Neat thing about this forum is that there are so many different types of photography shot. I shoot mostly people. 50 years as a photographer. 10 years working for a weekly in Pineville,NC.
