For all the gear I took with me this evening I managed to forget my gloves, although thankfully the wind wasn’t all that bad once I got away from the sea. Hah. These first four photos are infrared, I really was impressed with how the 28 and 50mm lenses performed – there’s no hotspots in any of the 40-odd IR photos I took, although there is a definite vignetting in most of them. I don’t mind it though, I think it adds a nice feel to the photos. So to give my official recommendation, if you want to try IR photography with a Canon camera, splash out a little and get either the f/2.8 28mm or the f/1.8 50mm lenses. And now for the point of this post. One thing I wanted to try today was to go back and capture previously shot scenes, but in infrared this time around. I’m dead happy with the results.
