Stunning Infrared Photography

Infrared photography is a special technique in which you use an Infrared Filter, which you attach over your lens like any other lens filter – then take an exposure using a long shutter speed (dependent on the light source). The IR-Filter blocks all other light and allows only Infrared light to pass through onto your sensor/film. The photograph you end up with has a very red/magenta Hue and requires digital post-processing.

These photos will make you dig deeper into this photographic technique and hopefully inspire you to create stunning Infrared Photographs! I encourage you to discover more by simply clicking on the Photographs, the photographer’s would appreciate your visit!
