Trees are beautiful. To see them portrayed in infrared light is just magical, taking on another dimension of reality. Photographed in color, the tree doesn't tell the same story.
Infrared photography isn't as daunting as it was with film. The camera I used was converted to photograph in infrared, using a standard R72 type filter. I used a fisheye lens to enhance the surreal quality of the image. No film, chemicals or darkroom needed.
I'll be in St. Augustine, at Florida's Birding & Fotofest this April, talking about infrared digital photography, and a creative approach to photography. Those who know me, know I love everything infrared, and everything creative, so it will be a lot of fun. I hope to see you there!
