Digital cameras have an ir filter that removes most of the ir in normal light.  You will get MUCH better photos by removing the IR filter.

As Lemonie said, you best bet would be an IR spot or flood light.

You can buy IR LEDS here. Hook them up to a battery and a resistor and mount them on your camera.

Camera's can see Infrared light, however humans can not. So, it is basically like putting a bunch of little lights on the side of your camera, except that humans cannot detect the light.
those are some expensive LEDs!

cheaper ones here:

This guide seems to indicate it's possible.

Probably, try IR floodlighting and see what that does.
