“I am so excited to be able to write this book and share with you what I have learned about digital IR photography. Infrared photography is easily attainable by the novice and professional alike. Why? Because it’s digital! We have transcended film photography and now have the wonderful opportunity to be able to photograph digitally. No darkrooms, no chemicals, no worries about light leaking in and ruining precious film. We are free to experiment over and over; the learning curve is much less steep. We can truly be artists and are limited only by our imaginations.”
Infrared light offers photographers another artistic avenue to explore. You don’t need years of experience or expensive equipment. Just grab an IR filter or a converted digital camera, and you’re ready to enter the fascinating world of infrared photography. The unique effects you can create with IR photography are limited only by your imagination. In these pages, you’ll discover the practical information about file formats and composition as well as plenty of creative inspiration.

Digital Infrared Photography by Deborah Sandidge
Earlier this year I traveled to Jamaica with my infrared camera. I drove from Montego Bay to Blue Mountain where coffee and, most likely, a lot of Ganja grows. There was a bike tour down the Blue Mountain, so I jumped on and photographed the entire mountain on the way down. Here are some pictures of my trip.

The night landscapes master is now exploring a new way with infrared without losing an inch of style.
“From the first moment I started in earnest with photography, night photography caught my attention powerfully. It was a very expressive technique. At night there is little light, the night is quite unknown to us … Nature looks different, there is a magic light, it is a different way of seeing things.”
John Kosmopoulos is a multiple award-winning photorapher based in Toronto who embodies an “eclectic aesthetic fine art” (EAFA) philosophy of photography. He specializes in black and white, infrared and “muted color metallics” photography.
Infrared filters are known for creating a weird, eerie mood in pictures, no matter what you’re capturing. That is why taking a filter like that to an already haunting-looking place like Chernobyl might make the scenery pictures you take look even more impressive. Photographer Vladimir Migutin did just that on his trip to the town in Ukraine that suffered the infamous nuclear disaster.

from: Chernobyl Shot With Infrared Photography Looks More Haunting Than Ever (Interview)
Несколько лет назад я первый раз увидел инфракрасный снимок. И просто заболел инфракрасной болезнью.
Я практически перестал снимать в видимом диапазоне спектра, отдавая время изучению и опытам в фотосъемке в невидимой человеческим глазом реальности.
В данной подборке я хочу представить работы, которые появились благодаря специально сделанной камере и разным по спектру пропускания фильтрам.
Do you have a fascination with infrared photography but no idea about its ins and outs? With decades of experience, Tim Shoebridge will guide you through the process of creating infrared masterpieces.
I have always had a fascination with infrared photography for as long as I can remember. I started out with my first film camera when I was only just a teenager, I was drawn to photography like a magnet at a very young age and in the years that followed I was fortunate to be able to experiment with film processing and printing in a make-shift darkroom at home. I progressed from a make-shift darkroom to something permanent, from regular black & white to infrared, lithographic and then both colour negative (C41) and colour positive (E6) processes. Upon turning sixteen I went to work in the darkroom of a busy wedding photography business. That was all thirty-five years ago.
