45 Impressive Examples of Infrared Photography
So what is infrared photography? Infrared Photography is capturing invisible light that shows incredible after effects. The infrared wavelengths usually ranges from 750-900nm. Your naked eye sees things as they naturally are, but just like radio waves, ultraviolet rays, gamma rays, and microscopic germs you eyes are blind to infrared. Basically speaking you are simply blocking out visible light while letting the invisible light come inside the camera lens.
At first one might think that infrared is just like the good old black & white photography. Then after analyzing the results you will notice that the bright parts (like the Sky) are darker, while the commonly dark green acquire a bright glow. This creates such a surreal output, that is out of this world! First of all lets get one thing straight out of the gate, the human eye cannot see invisible light. Therefore you need to have some basic knowledge of what to look for prior to capturing the desired photograph.
