Some comparisons

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. Ordering is new and then the original:
