Ever seen those eerie looking photographs that look like regular black and white shots, but something just isn’t quite right? Or have you looked at Ansel Adams’ work before and wondered how he managed to capture such surreal and super contrasted photos? Welcome to the strange world of Infrared Photography.
Infrared (IR) photography is the same as regular photography except for the fact that it doesn’t record visible light, it records invisible light in the near-infrared spectrum (as opposed to the far-infrared portion of the spectrum which only applies to thermal imaging). The rules regarding this type of photography are fairly similar to those for visible light with a few exceptions or adjustments.
