While this tutorial covers some important stuff about IR photography, particularly filters etc., there are several aspects that are probably not strictly correct. For example, it is commonly stated that the reddish hues that are seen if you use AWB are caused by the filter not cutting off all the red light. While there may be a tiny leakage of red light through a filter, it is actually the spectral response curve of the red filters on the red sensor in the Bayer arrays that cause the red colouration. Here is a link to a long thread at Cambridge in Colour that explore this and other issues.
If anyone wishes to discuss these matters further reply to this comment or check out my deviant page.

Thanks heaps!
It seems every photo magazine in Australia this month has an infrared feature article but you explained it better and gave much more useful information on how to do it!
They all had articles on the post processing but nothing on getting the shots to start with and I think that although you could take infrared pictures with trial and error,it's very handy to have an introduction such as yours.
