Click to preview Infrared Roadtrip photo book

White trees? Black skies? Yes, if you're shooting infrared.

As film continues to lose its appeal because of advances in digital photography, infrared photography has become pretty much a thing of the past; few companies even offer infrared film because it's difficult to handle and develop. But wait, what happens when you remove the "hot mirror" in front of a digital camera's sensor, thus allowing the infrared spectrum to become part of your photographs?

I had a roadtrip from California to Utah planned, so I decided to experiment with a Canon Powershot and had it expertly (and permanently) modified by John Chu of Petaluma, California. The resulting images are, to me eye, intriguing and revealing, even spectacular in some cases. But check it out for yourself by flipping through a virtual copy of the book. I hope you'll enjoy looking at the images as much as I did creating them!

Infrared -- A great and challenging new perspective on Utah. I know it can be tough to render infrared well (maybe I should finally convert my old Powershot for this as well!), and you've really brought a "new light" to even the heavily-photographed landmarks like Delicate Arch. Nice work!
