Although reflected radiation is all around us, the near-infrared region of the light spectrum goes unnoticed to the human eye. First discovered in the early 1900s, infrared filters enabled these wavelengths of light to be captured on film. With its dream-like appearance, foliage seems to glow in black and white images. Often called the Wood effect, the name of this phenomenon has little to do with the trees; rather it pays homage to the father of both infrared and ultraviolet photography, Robert W. Wood.
