    Infrared photography..

    Google it. It involves placing a filter which cuts off most visible light, except for those in the NEAR-INFRARED spectrum, giving pretty cool effects. Some include glowing foilage, black water which is uber reflective.. The list goes on. Better for you to discover through the net.. This is just a short synopsis, hehe.

    For framing, it's simple, just play around with Canvas Size in Photoshop.

    Welcome, btw! =)

    What is your camera? Not all cameras are good for IR.

    It can do IR, but not ideal.
    Long exposure and setting WB is quite difficult.

    That modification may void your camera warranty (or even worst, spoil your camera), and mod camera for IR may not good for normal taking picture.

    Just my guessing as I am not into IR photography.

    Yah..., true. D80 is too good for IR modification. D40 may suit for IR purpose modification.

    The Cokin P007 is usable for IR.
    If you are doing coloured IR, the colour will be more saturated.
