    Not necessarily...it depends what you want to shoot. I like the treatment that infrared film gives old wood. There's an image in my gallery of a farmhouse shot in the middle of a Canadian winter (on HIE).

    Even at night, especially if using flash (unless it's IR filtered), I think you will still want a filter if you want IR effects, otherwise you may as well use regular pan film at considerably less cost. But maybe IR effects aren't the goal -- is the intent to surreptitiously take pictures -- IR filter over the flash? Even then it won't be totally invisible. Note also that the current flavors of IR film will need approximately 6 stops of exposure beyond a metered reading, the stuff will be somewhat limited for any scene with action -- unless you use a pretty heavy flash.

    I have to remember that.

    I would disagree (politely) with this statement. If the sun is at a lower angle, the IR component of visible light is actually greater due to UV filtration through the atmosphere.

    I would also state that some of the best IR shots i have seen are taken during winter as the snow reflects IR well.

    If there is a drawback, most deciduous trees have shed their leaves, but this is merely a change of aesthetic.

    Respectfully,

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Yes it is a walking tour and I will be part of a group.

    I will try out a film first beforehand - thanks.

    I've never shot infrared at night so I can't really help you there, but I would definitely recommend shooting a test roll at night, around the same time frame, of lit (!) buildings or whatever else you plan to shoot beforehand (I imagine you won't need a filter -- there should be no need to block other spectrums of light at night since most of your sources should (hopefully!) have infrared light).
