A few weeks ago I spotted the photography of Scott Sharick on Facebook and was fascinated by his work. Scott had his Nikon D80 converted to infrared to capture these shots. He is not using a lens filter, instead, the hot mirror filter (designed to pass visible light while blocking infrared and ultraviolet light) in front of the camera sensor in his D80 was physically removed, thus allowing for the capture of infrared light. The results are staggering and very different from typical, non-infrared photographs.
For this collection of photographs, Scott took his converted D80 up Haiku Stairs, also known as the Stairway to Heaven. The infrared coupled with the black & white conversion provides a perspectives of the stairs unlike what is usually seen. Personally, I dig it. Check out Scott Sharick’s Flickr to see more of his work.
