Exploring the world through infrared eyes.

So what is infrared photography??

The peculiarities of infrared photography lie in it’s ability to capture what the eye cannot see. Infrared photography captures radiation wavelengths just beyond the visible spectrum. Characteristics of infrared photographs are deep black skies, bright white foliage and sometimes bright blue skies. Often quite mundane scenes can be transformed into extraordinary images when captured with infrared.

How do I take infrared images?

Most cameras are fitted with sensors to cut out infrared light. To combat this you will need to attach an infrared filter to your camera. These are referred to as R72 filters. You will probably need long exposures so a tripod and a shutter release cable will be a must. To get the best results always shoot in RAW. You may also want to set a custom white balance. Do this by shooting at a patch of green grass. Also remember, that infrared photography works best during the heat of the day.
