Infrared. A word to the wise... While shooting that day, I was purposely playing with lens flare. Since I was using an Infrared converted camera, the filter had been taken out. My eye was sore, red, and painful that night! One should always be careful looking through a camera pointing at the sun, of course. I thought I was being careful! Please take extra care when shooting with an IR converted camera!
