Who R U?
Yep, I feel like IR (Infrared) Ed this week. I’ve been bringing my IR-converted Canon Rebel XT along with my Canon 50mm f/1.8 ($99 special) lens with me to work each day this week. The IR camera is a particularly good choice for my lunchtime walks because IR can tend to [...]
Objective: To expand the scope of my infrared photography beyond the typical, expected IR landscapes.
Technique: Used an IR-converted camera for the image. I knew I wanted to experiment with vertical pans/motion blurs which I did here. Given the strong light (great [...]

Some subjects just seem to lend themselves very well to infrared imagery. So far, I have found lighthouses to be one of those subjects. I base this not only on my limited experiences but also on IR lighthouse images that I have [...]
