So I tried something a bit different when I took this photo around 1:30 am Friday morning: I used the full-spectrum camera I modified last fall with an infrared filter over the lens and photographed this scene using only infrared light. And I'm displaying it here in color, not black and white.

This is the first time I ever took an IR photo at night, because I knew there was next to no IR light available at this time of day, hence there was no point in trying to do so. What I failed to consider, though, is how much IR light is emitted by artificial light sources, such as the lightbulbs and street lights that illuminated this scene.

I'm intrigued by this photo (I only took one) and while there is obviously a learning curve involved with this process, it doesn't appear to be a very steep or long one, so I plan to experiment with this further ... stay tuned!
