    From the Old Salem website:

    the Historic Town of Salem

    Salem was founded in 1766 by the Moravians – a Protestant faith that began in what is now known as the Czech Republic. The Moravians were missionaries who established an earlier settlement in Bethlehem, PA before moving south to North Carolina. In 1756 they established a 98,000-acre tract of land “Wachovia”, of which Salem was one of a handful of small settlements.


    My wife and I were in town for a bridal portrait shoot, so we stayed over and visited Old Salem this afternoon. These are some of the IR shots I took.

    I'm a big IR fan from the good ol' days of film (had to put it in the camera in the darkroom or a changing bag!) and have always loved the foliage reflecting IR light (I got married at an old country church in Missouri where I had shot some IR pictures several years previously - we chose the church because of the original photos).

    Anyway I digress - but for some reason #2 really stands out. The b/w and the blue sky are definitely helped by the IR. Love it.

    cheers
