Getting Started In Infrared Photography


In this video, I give an overview and introduction to Infrared Photography for those who have had no experience with it. In the video, I talk about the three most common ways one can take infrared images:

1.) Purchase a camera specifically made for infrared photography
2.) Put a filter on your lens that only allows infrared light to pass through to the camera’s sensor.
3.) Have a normal camera converted to infrared or purchase one that was already converted.

Next, I explain my choice and why I chose to go that route then I explain the different frequency choices one has for infrared photography. Finally, I process an infrared image demoing what is needed to do in Photoshop to achieve the “Infrared Look”.

These two companies seem to be the most popular for infrared filters and camera conversions:
