Here's my most recent upload of a picture that showcases the advantages of what can be highlighted in a scene using infrared photography.
"Growing Storm" There was a nor'easter heading this way with a dramatic sky, so it was a must shoot day.
This shot demonstrates the high contrast between white clouds and a dark sky, the shades of black/gray from bark, and the bright white of leaves. Cement and stone is mostly unchanged with IR, but it ends up having a very smooth texture compared to the high contrasts and textures of the rest. The lawn in the background which still has grass despite it being winter looks like snow but it's just grass.
More later, on how to do IR photography, including what equipment, how to shoot, and how to post-process.

This first blog is my jump to the blogosphere from living in the virtual world primarily on Flickr. I have previously only been known as Cocoabiscuit . Visit my page there to see that alternative universe. My plan for this is to feed my new photos in here as I post them, especially with a bit more of commentary to go with them. I'm especially interested in near-infrared photography, so the future will hopefully include some tutorials on how to do it. My other interest is in playing around with HDR work, so hopefully we'll have some fun with that as well. Looking forward to the experience.
