My favourite Infrared photos

Infrared photography is a relatively new pursuit that I have been dabbling with.  In fact, it is about six months ago that I had my old Canon Powershot G5 modified to shoot near infrared photos.

I have found shooting infrared to be a totally different experience.  It has been a very rewarding one.

Now I have selected a gallery of some of my favourite shots, which can be found at

Black and white infrared photography lends itself either to reproduction of very strong contrasts, or to very dreamy landscapes.  I tend to find myself favouring the former.  Since most haze is in the blue section of the light spectrum, shooting in infrared also tends to cut out a lot of undesirable haze.

Now all I need is to modify a SLR for infrared use.  That will probably have to wait.
