Infrared Photography - Blues City Art & Portraiture

What is infrared Photography (IR Photography)?

Is a technique that allows us to capture the lighting spectrum in between 700 and 1200 nanometers (not visible for the human eye). Gives a dramatic, surreal effect, an ethereal white glow to the pictures Foliage and grass reflect infrared radiations and appear much brighter in IR Different foliage have different IR reflection as well as foliage affected by disease or insect infestation. Blue sky and water appear dark. Depending on the light, textures can be revealed in more details. Skin also can give interesting tones. “In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” — Alfred Stieglitz
