57: INFRARED EQUALS NEUTRAL DENSITY

Some time ago, Nicky dabbled around with shooting with an infrared filter strapped onto her digital camera. But she hasn't given it a whirl for eons and she felt like rehashing it. So what better time than on our Funday!

We started by rolling around in a grass covered ditch whilst gazing into the sun. Problem was, we were blinded by the light which was annoying and made us squint. Grumbling, we packed it all up and went inside. To our good fortune though, we discovered downstairs a nice beam of light coming in that we could use to highlight just our faces in a cool way.

After reviewing all that we shot, we noticed they didn't look very infrared. It kind of looked like we had used a neutral density filter instead. In layman's terms, a neutral density filter makes photos look dark and artsy even in super sunny environments.
