Went back to Angel Oak‘s home on St. Johns Island, SC for a photo shoot with Jack Gescheidt of “The Tree Spirit”.
i decided to see what the angel herald back in the mysterious world of infrared red light. I was really pleased and surprised with the first of a couple hundred photographs yet to be processed.
For those who are not familiar with the Infrared photography, here is short description for you all:
In infrared photography, the film or image sensor used is sensitive to infrared light.
The part of the spectrum used is referred to as near-infrared to distinguish it from far-infrared, which is the domain of thermal imaging. Wavelengths used for photography range from about 700 nm to about 900 nm. Film is usually sensitive to visible light too, so an infrared-passing filter is used; this lets infrared (IR) light pass through to the camera, but blocks all or most of the visible light spectrum (the filter thus looks black or deep red). (“Infrared filter” may refer either to this type of filter or to one that blocks infrared but passes other wavelengths.)
