Whoa, spooky!! That looks like ghostly smoke in the middle there.

Montucky – Thanks. I can’t seem to get this particular film to scan well enough. This was the best scan from the roll. Glad you like it, though.
Dragon – It’s actually strands of fallen Spanish moss. Very cool stuff.

Oh cool!! I never would have guessed! Still, I think I’ll pretend it’s ghosts of people who have died in the swamp…it’s more fun that way 😀

That works for me. 🙂

This is the perfect illustration for a book of scary stories. I would never imagine that this was done strictly through photographic means.

Yeah, just good old infrared film (with an infrared filter, of course). 🙂

I haven’t shot much infrared, but it does give things an eerie kind of beauty – a glow, really.

Most excellent photo. I have sent my Canon Rebel XT out for IR conversion. Should be fun.

That’s very cool. Just remember that you’re going to have some REALLY long exposures. I’m sure you’ve got a release cable; that’ll come in handy.

Thats super cool!!! How did you do that?

I shot this on infrared film using an infrared filter.

I can easily imagine Lestat down in there somewhere waiting to arise again. I am quite impressed you do these things with film, especially in a day and age when so many of us use digital image capture devices.

Actually, digital infrared photography has become very popular, and often produces better results than film. Of course, it often means converting a camera to infrared-only (most newer DSLRs are designed to resist infrared light, and therefore must be altered to perform infrared tasks).

Fantastic and spooky! I haven’t dabbled much in infrared. I have a few rolls I have yet to put through my cameras. There are swamps and marshes in my area, too. Maybe I’ll get some ghosty shots as well?

If you have some Spanish moss, it should be cool.

Infrared looks so cool. So spooky.
