1/3/2013 Daily Photo: Infrared Tree Canopy
One of the interesting characteristics of black and white infrared photography is that plant structures containing chlorophyl are rendered a snowy white. This can make for some dramatic scenic images. The downside to IR photography is that it, like HDR photography, can become a crutch. A gimmick. Rather than employing creative composition to produce dramatic images, IR captures can make any mediocre scene into an other-worldly landscape.
This is one of the reasons I use my IR camera sparingly.
This image is slated for inclusion in Volume III of Texas As I See It.
