Lamp Lighter

Canon 450d/Hoya R72/Tripod

One of my favorite suggestions is to experiment with infrared photography. This technique captures light from the near-infrared end of the spectrum, which is otherwise invisible to the human eye. The resulting photos can be beautiful and dramatic, with bright, glowing foliage set against a darkened sky.

Midday is the perfect time to shoot—providing creative opportunities during what most people consider the worst time of day for visible-light photography.

The majority of infrared photos are restricted to landscapes and static objects.

Summer Sun
by Robert Louis Stevenson

Great is the sun, and wide he goes
Through empty heaven with repose;
And in the blue and glowing days
More thick than rain he showers his rays.

Though closer still the blinds we pull
To keep the shady parlour cool,
Yet he will find a chink or two
To slip his golden fingers through.

The dusty attic spider-clad
He, through the keyhole, maketh glad;
And through the broken edge of tiles
Into the laddered hay-loft smiles.

Meantime his golden face around
He bares to all the garden ground,
And sheds a warm and glittering look
Among the ivy's inmost nook.

Above the hills, along the blue,
Round the bright air with footing true,
To please the child, to paint the rose,
The gardener of the World, he goes.
