Hi there, I've been busy with non-photog stuff, (I do live a life outside of my computer.
Ok, down to business. A recent trend that I have noticed (and finally decided to comment on) is the use of infrared technology to get good pics.
Go ahead and use infrared as a tool, but don't rely on it.
too many wannabe-photogs are relying on infrared to get pics that look neat, but are not using their skills. Just because it looks different to the beholder w/Infrared, does not make it interesting to the people looking at the end product.
Sharpen your skill(or get some) and use as a tool, an asset, but do not rely on it to get your pics...
