Infrared Photography Brings out the Magic in the Mundane | Designer's Resources | Scoop.it

For many photographers a sunny day at noon is just a nightmare, the light is hard, there are no clouds, skies look uninteresting, it seems nothing can be done. It's a good time to use an infrared filter and try to see what we can do with it. 


An infrared filter will block most (but not all) of the visible light in the scene letting infrared light pass thru. As the cameras have an IR blocking filter you will need longer exposure times and a tripod, depending on how dark your filter is exposure can go from 20 seconds to several minutes!


When you shoot with the infrared filter foliage becomes whitish, water and skies can look black and everything looks different, it’s a great tool to explore another world around you.
