Infrared photography can be a way to capture a unique view of the world and has always been a favorite of mine. It can be so cool to have your camera capture something that is invisible to the eye and gives you such a unique new view on our world. For those of you who don’t know what Infrared photography is it is a photo technique where the film or image sensor used is sensitive to infrared light.
What this does is cause things like leaves to reflect a lot of light and become almost white. Usually you will use a infrared filter on the camera. This way the infrared light pass will pass through to the camera, but blocks all or most of the visible light spectrum. You can create infrared images by using infrared film or with digital images and some tweaks to your camera.
We have written a bunch of articles on infrared photography in the past and wanted to share a few quick tips and also some past articles links to get you going with Infrared photography.
Or a common red #25 filter will do a good job blocking out most visible light and is a little easier to work with. See a full list of filters on the article “How to capture infrared photos” below.
