Wood Effect

Many things in nature reflect much more (or less) infrared light than visible light. For example, the chlorophyll in green plants reflects a lot of infrared, so grasses and trees usually appear very pale in an infrared photo. Moreover, plant with more chlorophyll will reflect more near-infrared energy than an unhealthy plant. That's what I like most about infrared films! That actual effect cannot be emulated in software.

Since, ROLLEI INFRARED IR400 has become an absolute favourite film of mine.
The slightly surreal glowing appearance of foliage in infrared photographs is called the Wood Effect.
