I was recently shown some infrared photography and I can honestly say it’s caught my eye and made me more interested in photography than I have been in a while. The color effects you can get with the infrared technique are quite unique. Green becomes white and skin tones look alien. I think this lends a dreamlike quality to these photos. Most cameras have filters that block infrared light but you can use a CCD filter to capture infrared light. The near-infrared images below were taken using both filters together and this technique often involves heavy post-processing to enhance the photos.
