Twenty Outstanding Infrared Photographs

by David Peterson 2 comments

Infrared photography is one of those art forms that looks more difficult than it actually is. Infrared photos can be captured with the assistance of a lens filter such as the Hoya RM72 (plus a tripod) or with a DSLR that has been modified to capture infrared light. Most of the images you see here have had some sort of post-processing done to achieve the interesting and unusual tones that are the hallmark of infrared photography.

      I photograph a scene back in the early 1960's with infrared color film. Using a dark filter, and every thing look reddish. These photos looks much better. Could I convert my old canon D-10 for this type of photos. Robert
