Creativity in photography is about using a tool that records things only as they are to instead change the way we see things. Or, in case of infrared photography, to record things in a way we’ve never seen them before.
By recording a portion of the light spectrum invisible to the naked eye, infrared photography, or IR photography, shows us the changed world. Green grass and trees become white. Water and the sky become a deep blue. Scenes are saturated with crisp contrast.
Infrared photography is a unique genre that produces images quite unlike typical photographs—it’s also affordable to get started with and a fun way for even seasoned photographers to experiment with something new.
