As of October 2007, this gallery is the latest development in my photographic exploration.  Canon recently released the 40D which allowed me an opportunity to have my 30D modified to an IR-Only camera.  There is a fair amount of information online about digital infrared photography so I will not post much here.  Infrared photography has been around for some time of course and in the past film users would apply a filter to the front of the camera to block the visible light and expose the special infrared film.  As a result this photography was slow and cumbersome.  Once the filter was placed on the lens the photographer could no longer see through the camera to compose an image so this was all done before attaching the filter.  With digital the process can be easier if one is able to convert a camera, the same process can be applied as just outlined however, digital SLR cameras have been built with a specific IR blocking filter before the digital sensor, thus making exposure times very long.  In my attempts the exposure time was over 30 seconds with the ISO set to 400.  Anyway, leaving the technical information for those who are interested to explore... here is the gallery, enjoy.
