I will also provide you some little tips to encourage you to START some infrared or full-spectrum photography by yourself!
Here am I preaching some very good reasons to discover and finally enter the Gates of Infrared and Full-Spectrum photography.
Believe me, there won't be no turning back once you will have taken this path
I will provide you with sample shots so you can see and enjoy by yourself
I know many people never saw any infrared photograph and that they are always surprised to see themwelves portraited under IR light: it makes them very surprised, confused, curious and often hilarious, too.
Infrared photography is well known for its both eerie and dramatic impact on the subjects you capture: human skin will look elfic, eyes wi
Do you really think grass is green?...Do you?That is my question.Do you really think grass is green?...Do you? by IRphotogirl
Just because most human eyes see grass and foliage "green" DOESN'T make it green for real.
First I want you to think of Daltonian people who are supposedly unable to make the difference between "red" and "green". It is all the same color for them.
Ok, let's imagine you are curious enough to wanna imagine how these 2 colors transformed into one by them could look like for you.
There is an excellent way to open yourself to other visual perceptions and that is infrared and full-spectrum photography.
The concept of IR false colors is only human mind bias.
I now have a question for you.
What is the "natural" color of grass and foliage etc when you capture it full-spectrum with no filter and absolutely no edit to your shot?
UV and infrared you can't normally see do their job: there is no such thing as "green" grass.
No, there isn't.
And grass and foliage always appear in the RED family depending on your sensor: pink, purple, orange or even true red.
Now I want you to a

Let's embrace changeThe only certainty in life is that everything changes. So I though it is time to change our group avatar - something I intend to do from time to time just to keep things fresh.heavenlybackyardbird
With the kind permission of Okavanga we are now featuring this lovely Bul-bul photo of his as our new avatar:

In the absence of MYPeanutGallerywWe have also been blessed to have Andorada agree to step in as co-founder for the time being. She will help out for as long as it is possible for her to do so.
Sea DreamsI have always had a love of water and of the ocean. Some might say it is because I am an Aquarius, and I guess that is possible. The sea is a dear friend of mine, she is in constant motion and teaming with life, She is hypnotic and so beautiful, how could one not love her. So, here is a little feature dedicated to one of Mother Nature's most powerful and precious gifts...the sea.Scooby777

Weekly Group Feature #16: 1/19/2015I would just like to say that choosing photo of the week and runner-up was far more difficult than usual this time around. Lots of photographs with great potential for obtaining those two titles were submitted this week, so it came down to picking at the specifics (which normally wouldn't matter; this is a feature, not a critique). I enjoyed having a bit of a challenge and look forward to the amazing artwork you guys will be submitting in the future. Keep up the great work!AnimalPics4Critique
Photo of the Week:
I chose this photograph for photo of the week mostly because of the contrast in color. Simply put, the dog just looks like he belongs, and any other praise I have is already echoed in some of the comments. Great job, mistty002 !
Photo of the Week Runner-Up:
Just like with the Photo of the Week, color was a big factor when granting this baboon Runner-Up status. The soft tones of brown, green, and grey flow together very nicely, which c

This week's Deviation of the Week is: "Elephant, Phinda Vlei" by Okavanga - congratulations!
Weekly Group Feature #15: 1/12/15Photo of the Week:AnimalPics4Critique
This photo looks like it belongs in a National Geographic magazine. With the subject off-centered and clearly in-motion, it really helps the viewer imagine they're actually behind this elephant, perhaps on a safari. This is a clear, well-lit, and nicely focused photograph. Great job, Okavanga !
Photo of the Week Runner-Up:
Most photographs I see of crocodiles and alligators either show too much or too little of the animal when they're swimming or walking through vegetation. This photo, however, has a nice balance between the environment and the crocodile. The reptile definitely looks at-home in the water, and to me seems to be looking for something. Well done, puppydogbonz !
