Learn to harness and capture infrared wavelengths with an infrared-converted digital camera. The authors teach you how those invisible light wavelengths will be recorded in-camera and the steps you’ll need to take to ensure the best-possible photographs. You’ll study myriad images that show how various materials—from skin, hair, and eyes to the sky, trees, grasses, and clouds—will appear in your images and learn to predict the way that the colors and tones you perceive with your naked eyes will be rendered in-camera. You will discover compositional techniques that will visually engage your audience. Finally, you’ll learn how to use artistic applications to add selective color to your black & white infrared images, how to create dramatic color infrared photographs that take infrared capture to a whole new level, and how to edit your images in postproduction for enhanced contrast and superb detail.
